‘Dark Knight Rises’ star Anne Hathaway says film experience overwhelmed her

The “The Devil Wears Prada” star spoke to SFX Magazine which was released this week. Her comments were published Thursday by various sources.

“Here I am working with Christian Bale, and Chris Nolan is directing me and Wally Pfister is lighting me and I’m in a catsuit,” Hathaway explained. “It was somewhat overwhelming.”

Hathaway was more specific about Bale’s working relationship with director Christopher Nolan.

“I felt so lucky that most of my scenes were with Christian because he’s one of the world’s greatest actors and he and Chris do have a shorthand. They have such an ease working together that it helped me relax, especially in the early days. I think because Christian had been there for so long, he just was so calm, always quick to laugh and have a good time but at the same time was really serious about work. He set such a great example and it was just really easy to kind of fall in step.”

Despite all of the costumes, explosions, drama and comic book mythology, the “Get Smart” actress says the key is the realism.

“It’s funny, the things that are so far outside the norm that you get used to, like doing flips and walking alongside Christian Bale, who’s dressed as Batman and I’m dressed as Catwoman… and we’re just talking like people do.”

Bale returns with Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Gary Oldman to reprise their roles from the first two Nolan directed films. Hathaway is joined by Tom Hardy, who plays Bane, as the antagonist for the Cape Crusader. Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Pence, Juno Temple, Matthew Modine and Joey King.

“The Dark Knight Rises” opens in theaters on July 20, 2012.
