Anne Hathaway Loved Beating Up Men ‘Too Much’ in Dark Knight Rises

Anne Hathaway at The Dark Knight Rises premiereAnne Hathaway enjoyed beating up men "a little too much" in The Dark Knight Rises.

The 29-year-old actress plays Catwoman in the Batman movie, and she loved grappling with guys in a more action-packed role than she usually takes on.

"Being in the movie was fun because I had to learn to beat up guys - I enjoyed that a little too much," she said,
speaking at the European premiere of The Dark Knight Rises at London's Leicester Square last night.

Christian Bale reprises his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the third movie in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, and Anne found the 38-year-old star "really inspiring" to act alongside: "The first minute you work with Christian Bale it's just amazing. I found him to be really inspiring. It was really great to work with him."

The brunette beauty looked stunning in a white designer dress beaded with silver sequinned flowers at the premiere, and she admitted she loved wearing her skin-tight cat-suit in the blockbuster.

"I probably should've felt more pressure playing Catwoman because of her history but I knew who was directing me so I focused on trusting Chris. I felt so lucky to be the one wearing the cat-suit, I just loved wearing it every chance I got," she explained.

Anne was joined at the premiere by fellow cast members Christian Bale and his wife Sandra Blazic, Tom Hardy and his fiancee Charlotte Riley, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy and Morgan Freeman.

The Dark Knight Rises is released tomorrow.
