Anne Hathaway who stars in the recently released The Dark Knight Rises is deeply saddened by the massacre that killed 12 cinegoers and injured more than 50 others in a Colorado theatre.

The 29-year-old actress released a statement on Sunday to express her sorrow at the shooting in Aurora.

"My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act. I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families," CBS News quoted her as saying in the statement.

Her co-star Christian Bale released a statement on Saturday that said, "Words cannot express the horror that I feel I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them."

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. said on Saturday that they would not be reporting box offices numbers for the first weekend of the screenings of The Dark Knight Rises.

"Out of respect for the victims and their families, Warner Bros. Pictures will not be reporting box office numbers for 'The Dark Knight Rises' throughout the weekend. Box office numbers will be released on Monday," the company said in a statement.

On Friday, Christopher Nolan, the director of The Dark Knight Rises released a statement saying that he was devastated someone opened fire during a screening of his movie on early Friday morning.

Nolan, who also directed two other movies in the Dark Knight trilogy, said he would like to express "profound sorrow" on behalf of the cast and crew about "the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community."

The gunman, who was taken in custody, has been identified as 24-year-old James Holmes. The attack happened at a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, during a midnight screening of the highly anticipated Batman movie.
