Zoë Kravitz is the latest star to take on the iconic role of Catwoman in The Batman alongside Robert Pattinson. This is one of the most physically demanding roles that she’s ever played, so how did she exactly get in shape for this endeavor?

Kravitz has always been known for her petite frame, but her workout routine for this role was more intense than ever. After eight busy hours on set, she would work out at home for three hours, getting ready to embody Selina Kyle.

“Obviously, you want to look good in a catsuit, but I wanted it to be realistic that I’m able to do anything in this film. So I had to be strong. I got stronger than I’ve ever been. That felt good, to see what I was capable of. I felt confident—and I could kick some a–,” Kravitz told Elle.

The Big Little Lies star also previously discussed her routine with Harper’s Bazaar and revealed she prefers training on her own because she worked with a lot of trainers over the years and learned everything she needs to know about fitness along the way. She’s a fan of morning workouts, and her routine usually consists of stretches, sit-ups, and leg exercises, but she really ramped up the intensity while preparing for her role in The Batman.
