Anne Hathaway: ‘Chris Nolan is doing insane things’

She's a woman, but she's also sort of a cat.

While promoting her upcoming film, “One Day” Anne Hathaway was more than happy to chat about the project she’s currently filming, the third installment of director Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the Batman franchise.

Just a few days ago a picture of Hathaway in full regalia as Catwoman was leaked from the set of “The Dark Knight Rises,” a fact which has left Hathaway slightly annoyed.

“It’s disappointing. I think everyone feels a slight frustration with it because those stills so undercut the work that’s being done,” she says. “Honestly, wait until you see this movie. Chris [Nolan] is doing insane things in it. It’s going to be marvelous and it’s going to be way beyond what anyone imagines that it could be. You can’t imagine the things that he’s doing, at least I couldn’t until I read the script. I was like ‘Really? Okay, you’re going there.’ And it’s Chris Nolan – even the picture that he released of me, that’s not everything. That’s like a tenth of what the cat suit is. I’ve got to say that I find it frustrating and I know he finds it frustrating but I think he’s kind of having fun with it, spooning out secrets. He has a lot more control than you think.”

The 28 year-old actress also had plenty of praise for the award-winning Nolan, whose last film, “Inception” garnered heaps of praise.

“I’m having an absolute blast doing it but it’s very big,” Hathaway says. “The thing that’s wonderful about [director Chris Nolan] is that he is the most successful person in Hollywood at the moment but his movies aren’t Hollywood. It feels like he’s making an indie. He’s actually a really alternative filmmaker, he just happens to have a 7 billion-figure budget. I like to call him Hitchcock but he blows things up.”
