Hathaway feels Catwoman pressure

Anne Hathaway has revealed she feels under pressure to live up to Christopher Nolan's expectations as Catwoman on The Dark Knight Rises.

The One Day star is the first action heroine in the director's series of Batman films, where she shares screen time alongside Christian Bale as the Caped Crusader and Tom Hardy as villain Bane.

"I didn't realise I was the first and I feel a little nauseous, that's a lot of pressure. I couldn't feel more privileged to walk on the set every day," she told

She added: "I'm the most annoying chipper person, because every day I walk on set I just want to do back flips at how happy I am to be here. I would have played street cop number three if it meant getting to work with Chris Nolan, and I get to play Catwoman! I hope I don't let him down."

Anne admitted she harboured dreams of playing Catwoman when she was a child.

"I loved Catwoman's sense of humour. I love how sly she is. I love how she, to use a cat metaphor, walks the fence and you don't know which side she's going to come down on. She's totally independent. And let's face it, she's badass," she said.
