Anne Hathaway: My Heart Breaks for Victims of 'Dark Knight Rises' Colorado Shooting


Anne Hathaway


The actress who plays Selina Kyle a.k.a Catwoman is grief-stricken by the tragic incident as saying, 'I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow.'

Like Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan, Anne Hathaway is deeply saddened by "The Dark Knight Rises" massacre that killed 12 moviegoers and injured more than 50 others in a Colorado theater. The Selina Kyle/Catwoman depicter sends her prayers to the victims and their families.

"My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act," the actress says in a statement to E! News. "I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families."

James Holmes was the gunman who did the massacre at the midnight screening of the movie. Wearing a body armor and a gas mask, he fired into the crowd inside the Century 16 Theater at the Aurora Town Center Mall with an AR-15, a Remington 870 shotgun and a .40-caliber glock handgun.

Investigation by police revealed that the 24-year-old former medical student of University of Colorado acted alone in the shooting. Police found "a Batman poster on a wall, a Batman mask and other Batman paraphernalia" during a search of his apartment in Aurora to collect evidence.

It's also revealed that Holmes spent $15,000 on weapons and ammunition over the past few months before he did the massacre. Inside his apartment, 30 improvised hand grenades and several containers filled with gunpowder and gasoline were recovered by police.

Holmes was described by his friends as a shy person, and never committed offenses that would have raised alarms during background checks. He once worked as a counselor at a summer camp for underprivileged children near Glendale, California. In his profile at one of adult websites, he wrote, "Will you visit me in prison?"
