Anne Hathaway has revealed that her top accolade yet, came from President Barack Obama over the summer for her portrayal of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.

At a fundraiser in August last year, the 51-year-old politician had lauded Hathaway's performance in the movie as "the best thing" in the film.

Hathaway told the Telegraph that it was the most powerful review that she had got, as Obama knew her name, the Politico reported.

The 30-year-old star is a vocal Obama supporter and had written an op-ed endorsing his reelection last month.
