Rachel Getting Married star Anne Hathaway says she is flattered by the Oscar rumours swirling round her latest role.

In the film, the 25-year-old, who was at the UK premiere of the family drama, plays fresh-out-rehab Kym as she returns to her sister Rachel's (Rosemarie DeWitt) wedding.

Hathaway, who previously starred in The Devil Wears Prada, received plaudits for her performance at the Venice film festival last month.

"I have gotten some Oscar buzz, which is very cool," she told journalists at a rain-soaked Leicester Square.

"But I think it’s a little premature to get excited about – but it's very flattering."

Next up for Hathaway is 2009 romcom Bride Wars, while the following year she will star in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland alongside Johnny Depp.

On her future co-star the actress said: "I met him at the MTV movie awards when I gave him an award and he kissed me on my cheek - that was very thrilling.

"I'm working on getting him to kiss the other cheek, that's why I did the movie, Tim Burton is great, but I just want Johnny Depp to kiss me."
