  • "It was incredibly difficult to work with the costume at first! (laughs)"
  • "Immediately. I was halfway through the script when I said yes. Someone else was cast in the part and I remember being absolutely devastated and calling my agent and saying, 'How have I not had a meeting about this? Why have I not heard about it?' It was one of those things where Tim had someone in mind and went directly to them. So I was really bummed, but it was okay. When she [Annette Bening] fell out of it I was just leaving the country and got a call to say Tim wanted to meet me. So I went and he gave me the script and I got halfway through and said yes. But you know, honestly, I would have done it anyway, even without reading the script. But I was very happy that she was actually very well written."
  • "I think that she was someone so dark. Dark characters are always more interesting and she's really very dark. That whole split personality is interesting."
  • "For a while, like a brief time, Tim was interested in maybe doing a Catwoman movie, but that didn't really last very long."
  • "Oh, I think she's great. I'm actually very much looking forward to seeing her in the role. I'm a big fan of hers and I think she has everything you need for that role. She has the humour, she can go to dark places, she's obviously very talented. I think she's going to be really good."
  • "Probably, if they asked me [to play Catwoman again]. It's unlikely that they're going to ask me."
  • "The costume was probably really unhealthy and it would literally just start to squeeze my skin. I was only allowed to wear it for so many hours."
