All heel new Catwoman Hathaway.

ANNE Hathaway is best known for frothy froth·y

1. Made of, covered with, or resembling froth; foamy.

2. Playfully frivolous in character or content: a frothy French farce.
 comedies such as One Day, The Devil Wears Prada and The Princess Diaries.

She usually looks demure de·mure

1. Modest and reserved in manner or behavior.

2. Affectedly shy, modest, or reserved. See Synonyms at shy1.
 and on the red carpet wears sexy designer dresses.

Although she looks incredible and keeps herself trim, wearing the iconic skin-tight Catwoman outfit would be a frightening prospect for any woman - especially following on from Michelle Pfeiffer.

But Anne, 29, said she didn't see herself in the suit until she was already comfortable with her character.

She said: "I decided that it's probably better for my stress levels to focus on how I felt in the suit and leave the visuals up to Lindy lin·dy or Lin·dy  
n. pl. lin·dies
A lively swing dance for couples. Also called lindy hop.



[From Lindynickname of Charles Augustus Lindbergh.
, our costume designer.

"Whenever I got into the suit I was always on set.

"There weren't any mirrors, so occasionally if I went to the bathroom I would catch a glimpse.

"I got to know the suit one piece at a time.

"But the first time I was in it, Tom (Hardy) came as Bane BANE. This word was formerly used to signify a malefactor. Bract. 1. 2, t. 8, c. 1.  and Christian (Bale) was in the Batman suit and I just got a chill. I remember thinking, 'This is going to be extraordinary.'" Of course it's not just about Anne looking foxy - Catwoman is a formidable Batman baddie and the actress had to do 10 months of gym time to be able to do the stunts.

And, unlike the guys, she had to do her fights in heels.

She said: "The training was really hard but it actually ended up being fun because I got to learn how to fight.

"The training had to get me to a place where I could believably defend myself against guys three times the size of me.

"I had an absolute blast. The day we finished the rooftop fight was one of the happiest experiences I've ever had as an actor.

"And did I do it in heels? Pretty much. We would do some takes without the heels and do a few takes with them.

"The takes with the heels were a bit wobblier but by and large we did them in heels as much as we could."
