Anne Hathaway has been stealing the attention since the first time she was cast as Selina Kyle a.k.a Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises”. Though some people have given negative opinions about her infamous physical transformation to fit the skin-tight catsuit, Hathaway herself admits that she doesn’t have anything to complain about it.
“The best? I’m in ‘Batman’. That was the best. The worst, it doesn’t matter; I’m in ‘Batman’. Like, this is not sort of job where you nitpick or find things to complain about,” the 29-year-old actress shares to MTV News. “I was as happy as I’ve been on anything on this one, it was ‘Count your lucky stars every single day’.”
Hathaway also has some advice for other actors who face a similarly snug-fitting ensemble, stating, “Work with people you trust and they’ll take care of you, don’t try to please anyone with it.” She adds, “Because I think if I had been forced to fit a certain ideal I wouldn’t have been able to do it. But everyone’s attitude was, ‘Become the character physically,’ and then that’s the way the suit is meant to look.”
In another interview with USA Today, Hathaway reveals how she’s able to do some acrobatic fighting in towering heels for “The Dark Knight Rises”. She dishes, ” ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ was really good training for that. I kind of ran all up and down Manhattan then. Now I just ran up and down Gotham. It’s just part of being a woman. You figure it out.”
Of wearing the much-talked-about leather Catwoman suit, the brunette beauty says, “I felt very lucky. Sometimes there’s a mandate that comes to you, a deal of how you have to look. The way I was treated on this movie was ‘Learn how to do what you need to do. And then, however you look that’s the way the character looks.’ I felt as a woman, very protected that way.”
Hathaway will soon be seen in “The Dark Knight Rises” which is scheduled to open nationwide on July 20. Joining her in the final Batman film from Christopher Nolan are Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader, Tom Hardy as Bane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as John Blake, and Gary Oldman as James Gordon. Her other upcoming big screen stint is “Les Miserables” which will open on December 14.
