Have you bought your tickets to see The Dark Knight Rises yet? We’re just about dying with anticipation, armed and ready to stick our fingers in our ears and “lalalalalala” at the top of our lungs if any of those lucky souls who have already seen the film should try and spoil it for us. One of the things we’re most excited about, of course, is to see Anne Hathaway’s cat suit in motion. From the first time we saw the suit in photos, we’ve wondered HOW exactly Anne moves in it, and, more importantly, is it comfortable, or did Anne truly suffer for her art in this case. MTV News caught up with the actress and asked just the right questions, and Anne, ever the graceful star, answered them about as tactfully as she could. When MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz asked how he would fare in the skin tight outfit, Anne described his experience as surely being “emotionally challenging.” You would think that would mean Anne herself had a similar experience as the crime fighting feline, but that, surprisingly, seems to not have been the case.
Anne either dodged the question tactfully or is just the most accommodating person on the planet, because we just cannot imagine that working your butt off while encased in Latex would be at all pleasant, but then again, we’ve never had the pleasure of doing so. Anne credits the people around her for making the experience a wonderful one, and adds that she wasn’t put under any pressure to fit into a predetermined idea of Cat Woman, but rather was encouraged to “become the character physically, and that’s the way the suit is meant to look.” Watch the whole video below.
