Me-ow! The Batman star Zoë Kravitz received a visit from some of her feline friends while hosting Saturday Night Live last night. Watch the clip below.
Zoe Kravitz Rocks Bat-Inspired Look at “The Batman” Premiere
As part of her opening monologue, host Zoë Kravitz shared just how seriously she prepared to portray Selina Kyle in the new Matt Reeves film The Batman, saying, “I watched the movie musical Cats every day for a year.”
“Which,” she added, “I actually heard was the same way Joaquin Phoenix prepared to play the Joker.”
But before the High Fidelity actress, 33, could continue, she was joined onstage by Kate McKinnon—dressed in Michelle Pfeiffer‘s costume from the 1992 film Batman Returns. The SNL cast member explained that Zoë was now “part of a proud lineage of Catwomen, each with their own origin stories.”
What inspired Kate to take up a life of crime fighting? “I fell out of a window onto a pile of cats,” she confessed. “They licked me back to life, and now I dress like Sandy from a porno version of Grease.”
It quickly all went off the rails when Kate lit up the “cat signal” and summoned a collection of catmen and women that hilariously included Ego Nwodim in Eartha Kitt’s costume from the ‘60s TV show Batman, Aidy Bryant as a literal cat lady pushing a cat in a shopping cart and Chris Redd as comedian Katt Williams.
