Anne Hathaway returned to the "Saturday Night Live" stage for a third time to host the show on November 10 and reprised her Katie Holmes impression, poked fun at "Homeland" and even showed off her singing chops with a parody of her upcoming film "Les Miserables" during her opening monologue.
The "Devil Wears Prada" star proved she can easily turn her hand to pure comedy as she gamely threw herself into character in every sketch.
On a spoof "Ellen DeGeneres show", Hathaway takes a light-hearted dig at Katie Holmes.
She appears dozy and slightly vacant and when
asked how she is, she replies: 'Well if you read Us Weekly you'll know
that Suri and I spend every waking minute at the zoo.'
And when asked how she deals with the paparazzi she says that she 'knows they are doing their job' but if they come near her daughter she will 'cut them'.
Played by Kate McKinnon, 'Ellen' was constantly asked by the audience to dance - pushing her to the limit.
British YouTube sensations Sophia-Grace and Rosie were also parodied. They now appear frequently on DeGeneres' show.
DeGeneres herself is a former host of Saturday Night Live. She joked on Twitter: "Portia and I just laughed so hard at the spoof of my show on #snl. I love when Kate plays me."
It's not the first time Hathaway has pulled out her Holmes impression for "SNL." Back in 2010 she appeared as the "Dawson's Creek" star who was being interviewed on Vanessa Bayer's "The Miley Cyrus Show" sketch, and though she nailed the actress' weird half-smile and penchant for bobbing her head while she talks, she claimed she wasn’t actually mimicking Holmes.
“I was a teenager when Dawson’s Creek was airing, and I was a pretty avid fan, so it just sort of came from that,” she told The Hollywood Reporter in 2010, adding, “It wasn’t really Katie Holmes; it was more [her Creek character] Joey Potter.”
