The Dark Knight Rises, the most anticipated film of the year is just over a week from release and sought after talent Anne Hathaway, who stars as the iconic rogue Catwoman in the film has revealed that she was one of the first people to read the script.
Hathaway admitted that she struggled to keep her cool while reviewing the top-secret document as she felt incredibly lucky to be able to do so before anyone else telling MTV News "I was in a room by myself reading a script. I think there was a guard outside. A part of me was trying to stay professional, like, 'This is going to be your one chance to read it for many, many months, so really take it in'.
And a part of me was like, 'Holy s**t! This is so cool! Oh my god! I am the envy of so many million people right now'. I just could not believe my luck, so I had those two things going. Keeping it cool and, pardon the pun, bats**t crazy."
Explaining her method of preparing for the iconic role, she added "I picked up The Dark Knight archives, and I picked up a book that explored the history of Catwoman, which was actually really, really helpful 'cos you just realise she can take anything.
She's so the embodiment of her time and whatever world she's in. I've seen versions where she's incredibly glamorous, and I've seen versions where she's a street kid, and that kind of informed my idea in that part of the way she cons people is she seamlessly and effortlessly becomes whatever their idea of who she is, is."
Filmmaker Christopher Nolan recently said that Hathaway deserves a solo Catwoman film telling Access Hollywood "I certainly think she deserves it, she's incredible."
The Dark Knight Rises will mark Nolan's last film based on the caped crusader and opens on July 20.
