ANNE Hathaway’s eight costume changes were a triumph, according to Surrey and England wicket keeper Steven Davies.
Davies said the Oscars co-host had shown grace and poise and was the perfect foil for the delicious James Franco.
The 24 year-old middle-order batsman who has kept wicket for England in Twenty20 and One Day International matches added: “I thought the burgundy gown was breathtaking.
“She’s got his wonderful Audrey Hepburn thing going on. Coquettish and playful but with an air of sexy mystery.
“I’d love to see her in a remake of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. No, scratch that. My Fair Lady. One word – amazing.”
Dismissing claims he asked to be left out of England’s World Cup squad as it would have clashed with his Oscars party, Davies said: “Matt Prior is an outstanding wicket keeper, but I’m sure my time will come.
“Anyway who wants a glass of this pink stuff? I’ve no idea what’s in it but it’s yummy.”
Meanwhile, Surrey season ticket holders are coming to terms with the fact that their wicket keeper is a massive Anne Hathaway fan.
Roy Hobbs, who once had a pint with the great Sir Alec Bedser, said: “I shall be writing to the chairman. Players who have Oscar parties should be tail-enders at best. And I’m not happy with him being that close to the crease.”
Hobbs added: “God knows what Sir Alec would think. He was such a wonderful servant to the club as well having great, meaty forearms and a lovely, soft tongue.”
