Los Angeles: Actress Anne Hathaway credits ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ for helping her pull off her daredevil role as Catwoman in the upcoming ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’

The 29-year-old says it is thanks to her role as a busy assistant to magazine editor Miranda Priestly, essayed by Meryl Streep in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’, that she is comfortable running in high heels.
"I had excellent training in `The Devil Wears Prada` for how to run around wearing them, so when it came time to just add some high kicks and jumps, it wasn`t that bad," showbizspy.com quoted Hathaway as saying.
"Having a stunt double, that did it much better than me, helped too though," she added.
