Anne Hathaway one of several celebs to voice characters in "Rio"
Stepping out for her new movie, Anne Hathaway partook in a special "Sneak Beak" screening of "Rio" in Los Angeles on Friday (January 28).
Dressed casually for the affair, the Oscar co-host took to the 20th Century Fox Studio Zanuck Theater locale while joining up with fellow co-stars including Jamie Foxx and George Lopez.
The animated film is set to hit theater on April 15, 2011, with Miss Hathaway portraying the voice of a character named Jewel.
A synopsis of the movie via IMDB tells: "When Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams."
According to Tech Jackal, this new animated film is based on the successful mobile game created by Rovio, titled "Angry Birds Rio".
Aside from "Rio," the actress is gearing up to take the stage alongside James Franco in co-hosting the 2011 Academy Awards next month.
In a brand new promo, the two poke fun at celebrities and their wardrobe malfunctions as Franco tackles the "Love & Other Drugs" babe with a blanket after her dress strap falls off her shoulder.
In some very exciting career news, Anne Hathaway has been named as the next Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises".
Last week it was revealed that "Get Smart" hottie will star alongside Christian Bale under the direction of Christopher Nolan.
Nolan told press, "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Anne Hathaway, who will be a fantastic addition to our ensemble as we complete our story."
