Director Christopher Nolan is keeping the action down and dirty on the set of The Dark Knight Rises. Actress Anne Hathaway, who is playing Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman), got so carried away shooting a fight scene, she injured her opposing stuntman.
Anne Hathaway injures stuntman on set of The Dark Knight Rises
Apparently, Anne Hathaway was so lost in the moment, she shoved the butt of her gun full-force into the stunt actor's eye socket, turning half his face black and blue. An insider who was on set at the time had this to say.
"Anne got a bit carried away during a fight scene...He came away with a massive black eye. Anne was mortified."
The stunt actor remained "good natured" about the incident, with Anne Hathaway sending him an engraved silver pin that read, "Remember no one packs a punch like Anne." The Dark Knight Rises promises to have some of the best, most authentic fight scenes ever captured on film.
