Anne Hathaway Still Wants to be on 'Glee'

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway still has dreams of 'Glee.' But, the Oscar-nominated star told PopSugar she is still waiting for her call from Ryan Murphy to tell her what's up.

"I'm planning on it," Hathaway said about her guest role as Kurt's aunt on 'Glee.' "I don't know if they're planning on it."

All this started after the Golden Globes last winter. Hathaway, who is currently filming 'The Dark Knight Rises,' said an innocent meeting between her and Ryan Murphy turned into a media storm. On her way to the bathroom, she ran into Murphy. Hathaway had already talked about her desire to be on 'Glee' in November 2010, so when she met Murphy he invited her on the series.

"Ryan Murphy goes, 'Anne Hathaway! Come on 'Glee.' And I said, 'Yes!' and he said 'Fab, I'll call you,'" Hathaway said.

After the Globes, Hathaway said Murphy was telling reporters it was a done deal.

"He went back to the press room and said, 'Anne Hathaway is going to be on the show,' and that became like a news event," she said.

"She created her own character, and we ran into her, and I said 'Really?' and she said 'Yes!' so we're going to do that," Murphy told E! Online. "We love her."

All of this was in January. So, what happened?

"And I never heard from him again [laughs]. Ryan Murphy, I'm calling you out: I want to be on 'Glee.' I've got my songs picked out," Hathaway said.

Come on, Murphy! You're not shy about handing out roles like candy *SPOILERcough* multiple 'Glee Project' winners *ENDSPOILERcough*, what's an Oscar nominee and America's sweetheart gotta do? We know you said no guest stars this season, but bringing back Idina Menzel already violated that. Bring on the Hathaway!
