Last week we watched video of True Blood star Joe Manganiello showing off his “werewolf workout” to Details magazine and today we get the skinny on another supernatural workout. Anne Hathaway is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine in in her coverstory interview, she talks a wee bit about the training she is doing to play the role of Catwoman in the upcoming sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rises.

Anne Hathaway has learned that it takes a lot more than milk and a few naps to perfect her Catwoman mojo for “The Dark Knight Rises.” “I’ve always thought that skinny was the goal, but with this job I also have to be strong,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. Along with a high-level acting performance as Selina Kyle, a character previously defined by the likes of Julie Newmar and Michelle Pfeiffer, Hathaway has had to prepare her body for the Christopher Nolan project’s twists, bends and occasional moments involving the martial arts. Her new regimen? Five days a week of high-intensity workouts and stunt training, following by an hour and a half of dance class to keep her lean, she told the mag.
While I really love Anne Hathaway, I’m still having a very hard time seeing her as Catwoman. I’m curious to hear more about her Catwoman training and I’m DYING for our first look at her in character on set. As you may recall, we got our first look at Tom Hardy as Bane last month … my guess is that we may get a tease of Anne as Catwoman sometime this year. I hope her workout regimen is successful … she has a long way to go to convince me that she can play the lithe and feline Catwoman.
