Anne Hathaway admitted that she loved grappling with guys in her most action-packed role since The Princess Diary.
The 29-year-old actress plays Selina Kyle aka Catwoman in Chris Nolan’s conclusion of the Dark Knight saga.
In the European premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises” Hathaway admitted to loving her anti-heroine role and the chance to beat up guys:
‘Being in the movie was fun because I had to learn to beat up guys – I enjoyed that a little too much.’
Christian Bale reprises his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the third movie in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, and Anne found the 38-year-old star ‘really inspiring’ to act alongside.
‘The first minute you work with Christian Bale it’s just amazing. I found him to be really inspiring. It was really great to work with him.’
Anne also admitted to loving the catsuit she wore as Catwoman in the movie.
‘I probably should’ve felt more pressure playing Catwoman because of her history but I knew who was directing me so I focused on trusting Chris.
‘I felt so lucky to be the one wearing the cat-suit, I just loved wearing it every chance I got.’
Hathaway joins the elite lists of Hollywood’s finest to play the sassy feline fighter: Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ open today (07.19.12).
