Anne Hathaway inhabits this timeless, eerie character, having perfected a suspicious, ethereal smile and making use of some of Lawson's lessons when she cooks up a potion of fingers and other unsettling things. From Burton's interview with The Los Angeles Times: "There's this very beautiful cooking show host in England named Nigella Lawson and I quietly had her as my image for this character," Burton said, referring to the comely author and television personality sometimes referred to as the "queen of food porn."
