Well earlier today we got some details on Anne Hathaway's Catwoman costume design in Christopher Nolan's Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. Now we hear from the actress herself. In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Hathaway briefly discussed her training and preparation for her role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. Hit the jump to check it out.
"Anne’s preparation for her role as Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, the next Batman installment (currently filming in Pittsburgh), has been more than cosmetic. She has been working out five days a week — rigorous exercise and stunt training followed by an hour and a half of dance. “I’ve always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job I also have to be strong,” she says. Anne has always been slim, but if you look at clips of her in her early 20s, when she made The Devil Wears Prada and Brokeback Mountain — films that first gave a clue of her dramatic range — the difference is she stands taller now and with more confidence.""Hathaway has also spoken about working hard to live up to comparisons to actresses who played Catwoman in previous films (though she probably doesn't have to worry about that Halle Berry film, which was widely panned). "It makes you work harder, I take a chance not that something may work. But there is a certain satisfaction in that, towards the end of the day did everything,"
