Anne Hathaway on Her Dark Knight Rises Training

Anne Hathaway talked briefly to Harper's Bazaar about her training for the dual role of Selina Kyle/Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises:

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.

The movie is now filming for a July 20, 2012 release.
