Anne Hathaway wanted to live with cat to prepare for Catwoman role

August 20, 2011 - Washington

Hollywood beauty Anne Hathaway has revealed that she had considered getting a cat as part of her preparations for playing Catwoman in the upcoming Batman movie 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

The 28-year-old actress convinced an assistant director that living alongside a feline friend would help her to observe the animal's movements and actions, but eventually realised it was an impractical suggestion.

"I actually had this moment when I convinced one of the assistant directors on the London portion of the film to get a cat with me, the idea being that we were going to get a kitten from a rescue shelter, and he was going to live with me, and I was going to observe it, and when I left London I was going to give it to her," Contactmusic quoted the actress as saying.

"Then, thankfully, her husband pointed out that that was a terrible idea on so many levels, not least of which being that it would probably be really confusing to the cat. So I turned to YouTube instead and got a National Geographic video on cats," she added.
