Anne Hathaway Agrees With Chistopher Nolan’s Ploys To Keep Batman: The Dark Knight Rises Top Secret
Anne Hathaway Agrees With Chistopher Nolan’s Ploys To Keep Batman: The Dark Knight Rises Top Secret

Anne Hathaway has revealed that she approves of director Christopher Nolan’s unusual ploys to keep the new Batman script a secret, insisting fans will have “so much more fun” not knowing any spoilers about the blockbuster.

Nolan went to extreme lengths to ensure the castmembers - including Christian Bale and Tom Hardy - were kept in the dark about the ending of The Dark Knight Rises, and even sent out scripts with pages missing.

The Love and Other Drugs star was closely monitored as she read scenes for her role as Catwoman, but she is adamant Nolan has the right idea about secrecy.

She tells The Sun, “I had to read the script in a locked room - OK, maybe the room wasn’t locked, I could be adding that for dramatic effect. But you know what I mean.

“I read it through once really fast and I went back and read over all of my scenes and tried to memorise them as much as I could instantly. It was cool. You could call Chris and ask, ‘What is this scene about again?’

“When I screen-tested I took the sides home and it was really awkward, because the producer had to hunt me down to get them back so they could be destroyed.”

She adds: “This should be treated with a certain amount of secrecy, which is great, because I think it is so much more fun to discover it in the movie theatre when there is so much anticipation about the movie.”

The Dark Knight Rises actor Tom Hardy, who is set to play the villain Bane in the upcoming Christopher Nolan Batman movie, has revealed how he believes that they have taken a big risk with the potential mumbling of Bane’s voice. However, Tom did admit that he believes the audience will soon be able to tune into the voice.

Hardy explained to Entertainment Weekly, “It’s a risk, because we could be laughed at - or it could be very fresh and exciting. The audience mustn’t be too concerned about the mumbly voice. As the film progresses, I think you’ll be able to tune to its setting.”
 
Concerns arose about the sound of Bane’s voice when the six minute prologue was released earlier this year. It showed scenes of Tom Hardy as Bane but due to the mask and the accent, it was rather difficult to understand what was being said.
 
The Dark Knight Rises is the third and final movie in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and it will also be the last time that we see Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader. As well as Tom Hardy as Bane, Batman will also be up against Catwoman, who is played by Anne Hathaway.
 
The Dark Knight Rises is released on July 20.
Anne Hathaway not on crash diet
Anne Hathaway not on crash diet

It was reported last month that actress Anne Hathaway was on a crash diet in a bid to lose 16 pounds in 20 days for her role in Les Misérables. However a representative of Anne Hathaway has dismissed the rumours, claiming that she is only losing a few pounds and it is not as extreme as it has been made out to be.

The rep explained, “She is losing weight for the part, but not that much. Just enough for her to look more frail, as she is playing a dying prostitute. She is consuming more than 500 calories. [The tabloids] are making something of nothing, as usual.”
 
Anne Hathaway is part of an all star cast for Les Misérables, which includes Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried. Les Misérables is being brought to the big screen by director Tom Hopper, who won an Oscar for his previous movie The King’s Speech.
 
Les Misérables is set to be released in the US on December 14, 2012 before being released in the UK on January 11, 2013. Anne Hathaway can next be seen as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, which is released on July 20.

It has been reported by The Mirror that The Dark Knight Rises actress Anne Hathaway has been put on an extreme diet, in a bid to lose 16lb in 20 days for her role in Les Misérables. Her character is the victim of abuse and also has to deal with extreme poverty.

An insider explained, “Anne is playing a destitute factory worker-come-lady of the night. Unfortunately, she only has 15 to 20 days to lose as much weight as possible – up to a stone and a half – because she’s been filming the scenes showing her fit and healthy, almost slightly chubby.”
 
They added, “It’s not ideal but, as with any high-budget movie, there are strict time constraints. Producers have assigned her a personal trainer and she is literally eating nothing more than a couple of apples a day, and some protein – mainly in the form of a shake.”
 
The insider continued, “Anne knows the risk of such an extreme diet and will undergo weekly medicals to make sure everything is still functioning as it should do.”
 
Les Misérables will also star Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfriend and Sacha Baron Cohen and is set to be released on December 14.

It has been reported that The Dark Knight Rises actress, Anne Hathaway has been having some rather serious arguments with her fiancé Adam Shulman, regarding their wedding plans. The fights are said to be so bad that some of their friends are worried that the wedding might be called off.

The insider added, “Anne is used to getting whatever she wants so having to compromise with Adam’s family has not been easy. It’s caused a lot of tension in their relationship. She still hasn’t set a date yet.”
 
Despite these claims, Anne Hathaway recently had her engagement party, where she is said to have had an amazing and fun night. Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman are set to get married in New York but they are not revealing the exact venue until nearer the time. That’s if it still goes ahead.

Anne Hathaway likes to keep private life private

The Dark Knight Rises actress Anne Hathaway has revealed how she is a person who very much likes to keep her private life just that, private. Anne claims that ever since her ex boyfriend Raffaello Follieri was arrested and jailed for fraud back in 2008, she has tried to keep her personal life on more of a quiet note.

Hathaway explained, “I try to keep my personal life low-key, particularly after what happened to me. As I say, I do need to keep a sense of humour. But, of course, I have often got things out of perspective. I started going to auditions when I was just 15, trying to get hired as an actress, and being rejected.”
 
She added, “When I was 16, I remember sobbing in the kitchen and my mom said: ‘What’s the matter?’ I said: ‘Tara Lipinski won a gold medal at 15. I am now 16. What do I have to show for it?’ My mom looked at Dad and then said to me: ‘Maybe you are taking things a little bit too seriously?’” Anne Hathaway is set appear as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, which will be released in both the US and the UK on July 20.

Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway has revealed how she can empathize with her fellow actress Lindsay Lohan, since she too has made a number of mistakes in her past. Anne claims that she and Lindsay have a lot in common, as she too had a wild past but the difference was that she was not such a big star name as Lindsay Lohan is.

Hathaway explained, “Lindsay Lohan and I have more in common than people think. We’ve all done things we shouldn’t. It is just that I did stuff at college when nobody knew about it, so I’m not a saint. I wasted time doing self-destructive things. I found you can only dance on so many table tops. I got all that out of my system and I am healthy and grounded.”
 
Lindsay Lohan, who has been at the centre of a lot of legal troubles in the past few years, recently confirmed that she is set to host Saturday Night Live on March 4. Anne Hathaway will be seen later this year, starring as the character Catwoman, in the third and final Christopher Nolan Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, which is set to be released on July 20 in both the US and the UK.

English actor Tom Hardy has revealed that he is not concerned about the issue of Bane mumbling in the forthcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises. There have been a lot of concerns raised following the prologue, as it is very difficult to understand what Bane is saying but Tom insists that, as long as director Christopher Nolan is happy, then he too is happy.

Hardy explained, “Not at all. I trust [director] Christopher Nolan implicitly. I’m not worried at all about people understanding him mumbling away.” He then continued by adding, “But I have seen some brilliant stuff online about my mumbling, ‘Mmmm … Batman doesn’t beat up retards!,’ which I thought was very funny. I enjoyed that.”
 
As well as Tom Hardy portraying Bane, The Dark Knight Rises also stars Anne Hathaway as Catwoman, Gary Oldman as Jim Gordon, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Caine as Alfred and of course Christian Bale as Batman. The Dark Knight Rises will be the third and final Batman instalment from Christopher Nolan and is set to be released in both the US and the UK on July 20, 2012.

Anne Hathaway is set to appear on the big screen as the latest version of Catwoman, in the Christopher Nolan directed Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises. There have already been a number of pictures released of Anne in the Catsuit and it certainly does not seem to be as sexy as its predecessors. However, Anne admits that she absolute loves the Catsuit and the reasons for certain aspects of it.

Hathaway explained, “I love the costume. I love the costume because everything has a purpose, nothing is in place for fantasy’s sake, and that’s the case with everything in Christopher Nolan's Gotham City.” However, not everybody is convinced by, not only the design of the costume, but also the decision to cast Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.
 
Many people have questioned Christopher Nolan’s decision to even include Catwoman in his third and final Batman movie, stating that there are better, unused villains that could have been used. Only time will tell whether or not these doubters will be won over. The Dark Knight Rises also sees Christian Bale don the Batsuit for the third and final time, when the movie is released on July 20, 2012.

A lot of people were quite surprised when it was announced that Anne Hathaway would be playing Catwoman in the upcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises. However, everyone involved in the project has claimed that the doubters are set to be pleasantly surprised by Anne’s performance as Catwoman and Anne has discussed a little of what fans can expect from Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.

Hathaway explained, “Gotham City is full of grace. You look at Heath’s [Ledger] performance as the Joker, there was a lot of madness there but there was also a grace and he had a code there. There’s a lot of belief and codes of behaviour in Gotham and my character has one, too. A lot of the way she moves and interacts with people is informed by her worldview.”
 
She added, “Chris [Nolan] has given us all such complex, defined, sophisticated worldviews that it’s just a matter of doing your homework and getting underneath the character’s skin.” Christian Bale is set to don the Batman suit for the third and final time, when The Dark Knight Rises hits the big screen on July 20, 2012.
