Anne Hathaway needs a perfect body to fit into the leather catsuit she wears in Dark Knight Rises. The actress told Chelsea Handler exactly how she is suffering for her art.

"I'm a vegetarian and right now I'm living on kale and dust," Hathaway said on Chelsea Lately. "The catsuit's unforgiving, man. It's a lot of motivation. It takes three of us to get me into it."

"Last time I was here we talked about how I really don't like working out. I really like it now, that's changed," the One Day actress said. "I know, it's like, 'Eu'gh.' I feel like that person, like I came to LA, got a bikini wax and went blonde and love working out."

"Actually I think I had never really gotten over the hump. There's a workout hump where you're so weak that you hate everything because everything's painful and you look like an idiot," Hathaway explained. "The gym I work out at I was literally working out next to a pregnant Jessica Alba, and she could do more push-ups than I could!"

Anne Hathaway is in the midst of a six-month shoot for Dark Knight Rises but is taking a little break to promote One Day, due in theaters August 19.
