Bette Midler Reveals Her Onscreen Regrets
August 15, 2010
Q What’s next for Bette Midler following Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore?–Linda White, Seattle, Wash.
A The Divine Miss M, who lent her distinctive voice to animated villainess Kitty Galore, says, “I have no plans. Isn’t that fabulous? Sometimes you don’t feel like climbing a mountain–you just want to sit.” Are there any mountains she wishes she’d conquered when she had the chance? “Plenty,” Midler, 64, admits. “My husband never lets me forget them. Sister Act was written for me, but I said, ‘I don’t think my fans want to see me as a nun.’ I also passed on Misery. I thought it was too violent. Committed actors aren’t afraid to look ugly or be vile. I couldn’t do it.”
