The Devil Wears Prada actress, Anne Hathaway, is starring in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, the final film of the Batman trilogy series. Hathaway portrays the insidious character of Catwoman and alter ego, Selina Kyle in the action -packed thriller film.
The actress has dedicated herself for several months of physical preparation to execute the persona of her character. The entire experience caused a life-altering transformation for the 29-year-old. “I’ve never really been that person. And it was pretty life-changing realizing that I could commit to something that was healthy for that long. I did a lot of growing over the course of this film.” said Hathaway.
Hathaway approached the role unlike any other.The level of ambition and strength it took for her to portray the character in the world of Gotham in the light that Nolan sees it caused her to move out of her comfort zone. “I feel in situations like this — I don’t know what other actresses have gone through — but sometimes there’s a mandate that comes to you and deals with 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,” said Hathaway.
There is no question- Hathaway has an unshakable talent. Nolan has sight into his next major project with Hathaway as the lead female role. The project would be a spin off of the trilogy series with Catwoman as the central character. “She’s an incredible character and we’re very excited to see her and hopefully we’ll leave people wanting more,” said Nolan to Access Hollywood.
The Oscar nominee went to at NBC Studios in New York City for an appearance on The Today Show to promote The Dark Knight Rises today (July 12).
