For my money Julie Newmar will forever and always be Catwoman, even if the long legged beauty thinks Angelina Jolie would be purr-fect to take over the Cat role in the Bat franchise.

"Angelina would own the part," the 74-year-old Newmar has declared.

"Catwoman is Batman's one true love," noted Julie who first played the iconic vamp in the 1960s Batman TV show.

"She's tremendously popular with women because she's both a heroine and a villainess."

Julie's industry pals say Angelina's already made inquiries about the role.

"When you look at the staggering box office of this current film, which actress wouldn't want to jump in?"

The 5 foot 11" star said her original costume with its 22 inch waists will be donated to the Smithsonian National Museum for a fall exhibit.

Sadly Newmar suffers from an incurable neuromuscular disease called Charcot-Marie-Tooth which is slowly robbing her of her ability to walk.

It came as a shock to Newmar, whose 33 inch long shapely gams were once insured by Lloyds of London.

"I walk - but very s-l-o-w-l-y," she divulged.

Raised as a Christian Scientist, Newmar channels her power of positive thinking to cope with her greatest challenge.

"My advice to people with any disease is to live above it."

Oh yeah. I've always loved Newmar's Catwoman. I would love to see Catwoman in the new franchise. I wouldn't have a problem with Angelina Jolie.
