Anne Hathaway Talks Weight Loss, That Dreadful Catwoman Costume

Actress jokes about dramatic weight loss, how new Batman film terrorized her

Anne Hathaway is now a mere shadow of her former self. She was never too curvy to begin with, but she's been losing a lot of weight for her latest role in the musical “Les Miserables.” She talks about all that – and the dreaded Catwoman suit – in the latest issue of Allure magazine.

As July 20 nears, anticipation is building for Chris Nolan's third and final Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Anne's interview with Allure marks the official start date for more intensive promotion in the press.

Among the first things she talks about with the mag is how she managed to fit into the Catwoman suit – and look as insanely hot as she does, no less.

It might look like a walk in the park but it was anything but, the star says.

“[It was] a psychological terrorist… the suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit… it dominated my year. I went into the gym for ten months and didn’t come out,” she says.

Once Anne was done shooting for “The Dark Knight Rises,” she had to go on a very strict diet to lose a lot of weight for “Les Miserables.”

For a while there, she was basically starving herself, but it's good to see that dieting did not affect her sense of humor.

“I’m doing some crazy weight stuff right now… I’m on day six of detox,” the actress explains.

“This diet makes me break out, so I love that. Nothing like living on hummus and radishes and then being all like 'And I got a pimple' Yeah,” she jokes.

In the same interview, Anne says she's usually shy and vain at the same time but, if a good script demands that she remove some items of clothing she will do so happily because “it’s [her] job to show people as they live.”

Anne Hathaway is one of the latest additions Nolan made to the Batman cast for the final installment. She joins Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.
