We love Anne Hathaway, not only because she rarely lets all the Hollywood shiz get to her head, but because she is still a fangirl at heart!
Hathaway, forever our Princess of Genovia, and of course Catwoman, recently opened up about the very first time she read the script for The Dark Knight Rises!
As one of the first people to read the Christopher Nolan script, Anne confessed:
"I was in a room by myself reading a script. I think there was a guard outside. A part of me was trying to stay professional, like, 'This is going to be your one chance to read it for many, many months, so really take it in.'"
However, Anne just couldn’t contain her fangirl excitement, as she continued:
“A part of me was like, 'Holy s**t! This is so cool! Oh my god! I am the envy of so many million people right now'. I just could not believe my luck, so I had those two things going. Keeping it cool and, pardon the pun, bats**t crazy."
LOLz! We could only imagine that those would be our exact reactions, as well! Ha!
Playing the role of Catwoman must’ve been a dream come true for the actress, who explained that she prepared for the iconic role by reading up on The Dark Knight archives and books on her character’s history!
Nolan’s already sung Anne’s praises as Catwoman — even saying she deserves a solo flick as the heroine — and we just cannot wait to see!
…As if we weren’t excited enough for its release NEXT FRIDAY!!!!
