The young actress chosen to play Selina Kyle in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming The Dark Knight Rises may enjoy playing the role but that doesn’t mean wearing the costume is easy.
The Hollywood Reporter posted a video of Hathway from an appearance on Chelsea Lately (although the video isn’t working for me) recently where she discussed her fitness regimen. ”I’m like living on kale and dust for training,” Hathaway told the late night host. “The catsuit’s unforgiving, man.”
Every woman who’s worn the Catwoman costume knows that but Hathaway also mentioned that it takes a lot of motivation just to get into it every day. “It takes three of us, and the movie shoots a little over six months. It’s not just focus my efforts for one day, I have to really get into it,” she said.
Though it sounds like she’s having a tough time, the actress did say she’s now enjoying her workouts to stay in shape for the skin-tight role. ”The last time we talked about how much I really don’t like working out, and I’ve kind of fallen… I really like it now. Ugh, I’m that person, like I came to L.A., got a bikini wax, went blonde and love working out!”
When host Chelsea Handler asked if she’d given up alcohol for the role Hathaway said, “I gotta have a little fun. My character is [bad], so if I were perfectly behaved, I wouldn’t be honoring her.”
Hathaway has also been recieving extra attention from the paparazzi thanks to the high-profile role. She rapped about it on Conan. Seriously, watch it:
