Anne Hathaway Reveals Her Training Regime For TDKR

Anne Hathaway Reveals Her Training Regime For <i>TDKR</i>

In a recent interview, the young actress gives some details on her "rigorous" training for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises..

We have already heard reports of Hathaway injuring a stuntman and tearing her costume while shooting scenes for Nolan's currently filming Batman threequel. Now, if any further evidence was needed that her role as Catwoman will be a very physical one, Harper's Bazaar has published an interview dealing elements of her exercise/stunt training for the movie..

Anne's preparation for her role as Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, the next Batman installment (currently filming in Pittsburgh), has been more than cosmetic. She has been working out five days a week — rigorous exercise and stunt training followed by an hour and a half of dance. "I've always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job I also have to be strong," she says. Anne has always been slim, but if you look at clips of her in her early 20s, when she made The Devil Wears Prada and Brokeback Mountain — films that first gave a clue of her dramatic range — the difference is she stands taller now and with more confidence.

Nothing major, but nice to have an idea as to how she is preparing for the role. Rumors surfaced last week that we might be getting a look at Hathaway as Catwoman when the next TDKR vial campaign hits, but so far not a peep.

Nice cans

Nolan doesn't pick bad actors for roles in his films and Anne Hathaway will completely inhabit this role.
I'm certainly looking forwards to seeing her in the costume, but she is a very talented actress who's not afraid to challenge herself, So I think her take on Selena Kyle will be the best yet.

I put the Jew in judo know me homie.
Brashlight - 6/27/2011, 7:09 AM
Nomis@ yeah felt like it was being kind of cryptic so some explanation was in order :P and thanks definitely my second favorite avatar. My first being Jessica Biel’s butt that I had a while back :) speaking of which!

Bring on the Cat-suit!

An hour and a half of dance every day? Hmmmm.....reminds me of the laser dance scene from Ocean's Twelve.

I bet she will be the best Catwoman we have ever seen. She is an excellent actress and by far the hottest woman to ever play the character. I just hope "cancer throat" Bale is as good as his supporting cast.
valeriesghost - 6/27/2011, 8:00 AM
growler@ he cast that abortion katie Holmes in BB so he's also knows how to [frick] up casting as well. but AH will do a much better job.
valeriesghost - 6/27/2011, 8:01 AM

HelaGood - 6/27/2011, 8:13 AM

Wildaniel - 6/27/2011, 8:15 AM

TheIronHulk - 6/27/2011, 8:29 AM

JosePetrelli12 - 6/27/2011, 8:33 AM
She will do great, I am sure of it... Wrost Nolan casting ever: Maggie "Deadface" Gyllenhaal...
JosePetrelli12 - 6/27/2011, 8:34 AM
ROMACK - 6/27/2011, 8:44 AM
Jose@ Yeah... but at least he killed her off dude. You gotta take pleasure in the little things.
Batman5 - 6/27/2011, 9:14 AM
can't wait to see the catsuit!
Number1Wolverine - 6/27/2011, 11:27 AM
And ladies, skinny is not the goal.
Vital - 6/27/2011, 12:27 PM
I'm sorry that some of you guys settle for fat chicks lol. The new lazy american standard?

You people who like fat chicks- "We don't want to work hard to get a good bodied girl these days, the marlins, who take care of themselves, simply because we are too lazy to chase them, instead, we will just go after the easy fat ones, the sucker fish." This is so true it's not even funny.
TheMyth - 6/27/2011, 1:10 PM
Vital, I don't think anyone said anything about wanting 'Fat chics'. A few said they want women with 'curves' that doesn't translate to fat. I can agree with you on the frustration of some internet dufus acting like they bed supermodels on a daily basis, but I'm not getting that vibe here... yet. I'm still waiting for that one guy to tell us how fugly he thinks she is and yada-yada. I assume your not an American? Have you ever been here?
Organa1978 - 6/27/2011, 1:44 PM
Skinny like a cat
Namor - 6/27/2011, 5:05 PM
man, none of those pics with Anne looking like Catwoman really look that good.. I hope she looks better actually done up, usually the fan made pics of the actor/actress portrayed how we think they'll look,look half way solid.. She looks kinda silly..
RacerREX - 6/27/2011, 7:32 PM
Me lika Anne!

STYGR8dotCOM - 6/27/2011, 9:28 PM
hah nice! ^^
Vital - 6/27/2011, 10:33 PM
@Myth, I'm american :)
sheebz - 6/28/2011, 7:15 AM
I'm sorry I just have to say, vital's is the most douchebaggiest comment on here...

No one was talking about fat chicks and there's nothing wrong with "fat" chicks. Women with "curves" are not considered fat, they're considered real [frick]ing women. As for the role of catwoman, she's needs to be physical so she's gotta be somewhat cut. No skinny girls plz! I'd like to see a woman not some girl with the body of a pubescent boy to fill out that cat suit.

U may like to bang a bag of bones but most men like some cushion when they're pushin.
