Catsuit was overwhelming: Hathaway

Anne Hathaway wanted to shout from the rooftops while wearing a catsuit for The Dark Knight Rises.

The actress, who plays Catwoman in the latest instalment of the Batman franchise, was thrilled with the role.

"There were some days when I was wearing the catsuit for a long time and I had to fight 15 guys, and I just wanted to shout from the rooftops how excited I am," she told Total Film.

"It's an incredible role. It's one of the most famous comic-book characters for a woman. But, also, it's Catwoman in this franchise."

Hathaway praised Christopher Nolan, who is directing the Batman franchise for the third and final time.

She says the filmmaker knew exactly how she should look as Catwoman/Selina Kyle.

"[Christopher is] like Hitchcock with an automatic," she said. "Christopher is so intelligent and his instincts are dead on. He understands lighting. He understands pace. He understands writing. He understands costumes, for God's sake!"
