Hathaway, sporting her cropped hair for "Les Miserables," was chatting with Letterman about Christopher Nolan's anticipated Batman film when the late night host made a comment that did not please fans.
"I saw the Batman movie," Letterman said, giving it praise and noting how the lengthy running time "flies by." But he did opt to remark that "in the end, Batman is dead."
Seeing that he burst out in laughter following that comment, he was either really kidding, or just found it funny that he dropped a spoiler.
"Metaphysically, or emotionally?" Hathaway inquired, either playing along or trying to diffuse the situation, as she points out that the question of whether Batman lives or dies in Nolan's film is "a whole thing.
"He ain't dead, just relax, will ya?" Letterman responded.
If it turns out he does die at the end, Hathaway's already cleared her name. She gave Letterman fair warning and issued an apology to the director.
"I just want you to know the wrath that you have just invited onto yourself," the 29-year-old star said. "Chris, I had no part in it, I'm sorry."
