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."

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
