All 8 Stars Who Played Catwoman, Ranked from Domestic to Wild Cat
“Live fast. Love hard. Die young. Leave a good-smelling corpse.”
Catwoman is not a superhero, but she is definitely a remarkable woman with powers that each director of each new Batman movie interprets differently.
But one thing remains the same: Selina Kyle is Batman's personal femme fatale (and we envy him for it), who captures his attention not with beauty and vulnerability, but with her potential to compete with him or become his loyal ally.
8. Camren Bicondova
The show focused on the teenagers and their adventures before they became Batman and Catwoman. That is why 14-year-old aspiring actress and dancer Camren Bicondova was cast as Selina Kyle.
Her character is a thief and a street kid, and hints of Catwoman can only be seen in Camren's plasticity, which was impeccable due to her dance experience.
7. Lee Meriwether
In the 1966 movie, the role of the dangerous lady went to the actress who held the title of Miss America, Lee Meriwether. The only crucial thing the actress lacked was the audacity of a thief from the streets.
This iteration wasn’t the most successful, which partially led to the fact that after the '60s, Catwoman disappeared from the film versions of Batman for a long time.
6. Halle Berry
Unfortunately, the solo film about Catwoman wasn't too successful either. In 2004, the movie starring Halle Berry was released. It was a box office success, but was panned by critics and viewers. It won four Golden Raspberries including Worst Actress.
5. Anne Hathaway
In Christopher Nolan 's Batman trilogy, Catwoman only appeared in the final film. Her role was played by Anne Hathaway, who, according to rumors, was sure she was playing Harley Quinn during the auditions.
Hathaway handled the role brilliantly, performing her own stunts, but some fans feel that the actress did not quite fit the character.
4. Eartha Kitt
In the Batman series, which ran from 1966 to 1968, Catwoman was played by two actresses, the second one being Eartha Kitt. The actress became, in a sense, the first — the first black Cat. Yes, Halle Berry was no pioneer at all.
Kitt also gave the character her indescribable purring voice.
3. Julie Newmar
Selina Kyle's first appearance on screen took place in the '60s in the already mentioned series. Julie Newmar did not hide her face with a mask, and she wore a black, shiny jumpsuit and a headband with ears.
Thanks to Newmar, the role of Catwoman became the dream of many actresses.
2. Zoë Kravitz
In the 2022 Batman movie, Robert Pattinson 's partner was Zoë Kravitz. In preparation for the role, Zoë studied the behavior of wild cats, and reportedly joked that she even drank milk from a bowl like a real cat.
Her Catwoman turned out to be elegant, weak, and dangerous at the same time.
1. Michelle Pfeiffer
The movie with Michael Keaton had many contenders for the role of Catwoman, but in the end Michelle Pfeiffer got the part, and it was a huge success. The movie was a hit, and Michelle's Catwoman captivated audiences with her sass and raw sexual energy. Yes, she was even cooler than Batman himself.
Many fans still consider her the best Catwoman ever.
