Anne Hathaway Watched YouTube Cat Videos Before Playing Catwoman

Catwoman.

In an interview with Chelsea Handler in Interview, Anne Hathaway admitted that she watched lots of cat videos on YouTube and bought a National Geographic video about cats to prepare for her role as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. Sounds silly, but it's definitely better than her first (real) plan: adopt a cat, observe it for a few months, then pawn it off on an assistant director. Once Hathaway was advised against that, she turned to the tape. Kind of makes you think Chris Nolan should have cast Maru instead. [Interview]
