Most women would have a panic attack at the thought of donning a black leather jumpsuit for the silver screen, but Anne Hathaway looks confident in new images released from The Dark Knight Rises, where Hathaway plays the iconic role of Catwoman. We suspect that confidence comes from Hathaway's workout routine, which is probably a little different than you'd expect for a superhero.
Anne Hathaway's Catwoman Workout
Getting Hathaway ready to play Catwoman was more about strength and skill, not weight. While she's obviously nice and lean, Hathaway did stunt training for five days a week to prepare for the role. In addition to that (talk about a lot of cardio!), she rounded out her workout with an hour and a half of dance. In June she told Harper's Bazaar, "I've always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job I also have to be strong," she says.
Yay for strong woman! We can't wait to see Hathaway as Catwoman!
