Anne Hathaway Talks 'Becoming' Catwoman
Anne Hathaway, 29, isn't the first actor who has had to sacrifice comfort for her art, but Hathaway, who plays Catwoman in the new Batman flick, The Dark Knight Rises, alongside Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Liam Neeson and Gary Oldman, didn't bemoan a single moment of her skin-tight, black leather Catwoman suit ordeal.
"This is not the sort of job where you nitpick or find things to complain about," Hathaway told MTV News. "I was as happy as I've been on anything on this one, it was, 'Count your lucky stars every single day,'" she said. "Everyone's attitude was, 'Become the character physically,' and then that's the way the suit is meant to look.'"
The "worst" part of having to film in the uncomfortable suit "doesn't matter," Hathaway explained. The "best" is simple — "I'm in Batman."
The new Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan, hits theaters on July 20.
