Anne Hathaway is busy preparing for the Oscars

Anne Hathaway has compared her Oscar ceremony preparations to those of a boxer gearing up for a fight.

The Devil Wears Prada star, who will co-host the star-studded event with James Franco, is juggling her presenting rehearsals with a strict training schedule for her role as Catwoman in the upcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises.

"There's a lot going on, but it's all really super-duper positive," Anne revealed.

"I feel like I have a big fight coming up and everyone's giving me the thumbs-up and the 'you'll-rock-it' fist pump. I have unbelievable support."

The 28-year-old actress said the Oscar team was helping her and James find their funniest material, and the producers "are making it as easy as possible".

She added: "It's all been kind of wonderful and jovial...it turns out it takes a village to host the Oscars."

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
