While imagining what he would do if he was cast as Catwoman, Jimmy said he’d study cats and drink milk out of a bowl – to which Zoë replied, “I did that. I’m method, dude. I hung out with cats a lot.”

The 33-year-old actor also admitted that she was inspired by the subtle intimidation and fear cats are able to strike up in people.

“I watched a bunch of cat videos, feline videos; watching them fight. And what I was so interested by was the fact that you can’t read their face at all.”

“Which is why I think people are kind of creeped out by them. You can’t tell what they’re going to do.”

Because the animals can be so unpredictable, it wasn’t too surprising when Zoë revealed they had a tough time filming the cats used in the movie.


“They were the hardest thing to control during the shooting. We were doing crazy stunts, and, like, all that was fine, but getting a cat to stay in one place – impossible!”

The producers were adamant about Zoë getting to know the cats on set, so they would even schedule “cat time” during her filming, where they’d put her in a room with a ton of cats.

“I was just sitting there and the cats would walk away,” Zoë joked. “It did nothing.”

Well, reviews for The Batman have already poured in, and even though Zoë feels like she didn’t bond with the cats, fans think she completely nailed the role!
