Anne Hathaway - Anne Hathaway Confirms Dark Knight Rises Competition

Subscribe to Anne Hathaway alerts

Anne Hathaway is in "competition" for a role in 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

The 'Love & Other Drugs' actress is believed to be in competition with a number of stars for a leading female role in the movie, including Natalia Portman, Keira Knightley and Blake Lively, and she has confirmed there is a possibility she could be in the forthcoming Christopher Nolan-directed Batman movie.

Asked if she felt she was competing for the big roles, with 'The Dark Knight Rises' in particular, she told "Of course, but that has always been the case. There is always competition. I don't know how to answer that question, it feels too revealing, somehow."

Anne has been linked to a number of leading roles in superhero films in the past, including the since-scrapped 'SPIDER-MAN 4' directed by Sam Raimi and a forthcoming 'Superman' movie, although the latter has not been confirmed.

Discussing her previous movies, Anne confesses her turn as a journalist in 'Devil Wears Prada' alongside Meryl Streep was a tough one as she didn't feel like she "belonged" on the set.

She said: "I never felt like I belonged on 'Devil'. I remember that the best I felt on that movie came where I got out of Meryl's way with a little bit of grace. But I never felt in any way like I went toe-to-toe or held my own. It was about trying to just be there, and know when to get out of Meryl's way."
