Anne Hathaway & The Olympics: 'Dark Knight Rises' Actress Loves Missy Franklin Too

Posted: Updated:

Missy Franklin is pretty much having the best week of her life. Not only has she already won two gold medals in the 2012 London Olympics, but she also has a few famous fans, including Taylor Swift and Anne Hathaway.

When Vulture caught up with the "Dark Knight Rises" actress, Hathaway couldn't contain her Team USA pride. "The entire U.S. women’s swim team is blowing my mind right now," she said. "There has been so much focus on the men’s swim team, who are all fantastic, and the women have just kind of crept in there and have all done so well."

But which Olympic sport would Hathaway like to try her hand at? "I would love to be on the U.S. women’s gymnastic team or the U.S. women’s swim team," she said. "There is no basis for this wish -- I can’t dive, swim, or tumble -- but I really think those look fun."

Hathaway isn't the only celebrity to share her excitement over the Olympic games. Samuel L. Jackson has been tweeting his amusing observations about the London Olympics over the last week. Meanwhile, Canadian-born Justin Bieber tweeted a heartfelt congratulations at the U.S. women's gymnastics team, who took home gold for Team USA on Tuesday.

Bieber wasn't the only pop star taking an interest in the "Fierce Five." Lady Gaga also tweeted a message of congratulations to the team.

Lady Gaga
Woohoo! Gold for the ladies! just want to squeeze them! So much talent and beauty. Did u seem all holding hands? There's no "I" in team.
