Anne Hathaway has trained heavily in order to take on the iconic role of Catwoman in the upcoming film, "The Dark Knight Rises," and the 28-year-old actress revealed all of that prep work did have one perk - she finally learned to enjoy working out.
"Last time I was here we talked about how much I really don't like working out," Anne told Chelsea Handler during an interview on Tuesday's "Chelsea Lately." "I really like it now. I know, that's like, ugh... that person.
"Like, I came to LA, got a bikini wax, went blond and love working out," she added, poking fun at herself.
Through her rigorous Catwoman workouts, which often include Bikram yoga, the actress said she was finally able to get over "the hump."
"There's a workout hump where you're so weak that you hate everything and everything's painful, and you look like an idiot," Anne explained. "Like, the gym that I work out at, I was literally working out next to a pregnant Jessica Alba, and she could do more pushups than I could!"
While the fitness routine has become more enjoyable for the "One Day" star, the diet is anything but .
"I'm a vegetarian and right now, I'm living on kale and dust for the training," she laughed. "That catsuit's unforgiving, man!"
