Known for her vegan ways, actress Anne Hathaway has admitted she is struggling with her exercise and diet for her role as Catwoman in the latest installment of Batman, The Dark Knight Rises.

Hathaway revealed to Chelsea Handler, while appearing on Chelsea Lately, “I’m a vegetarian and right now, I’m living on kale and dust for the training. That catsuit’s unforgiving, man.” She also told Handler, that it takes three people to squeeze her into the leather costume.

“I’ve never really gotten over the hump,” she explained. “There’s a workout hump where you’re so weak that you hate everything, everything is so painful and you look like an idiot.”

She also told Handler, “The gym where I work out, I was literally working out next to a pregnant Jessica Alba and she could more push-ups than I could.” To help with her fitness routine, she recently started Bikram yoga.

Hathaway will play Selina Kyle in Christopher Nolan’s third Batman movie and she can now be seen in One Day opposite of Jim Sturgess.

    I have read that Anne Hathaway has mentally prepared for this role by using a cat’s litter tray for the past three months.
