Zoë Kravitz shared how she prepared to play Catwoman in ‘The Batman’

Actor Zoë Kravitz plays Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, in the 2022 movie The Batman. The film came out in theaters on Mar. 4.

Kravitz had big shoes to fill, as several actors have taken on the role before her, including Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry, Eartha Kitt, and Michelle Pfeiffer. She discussed some of the ways she prepared for the part in an interview with Jimmy Fallon for The Tonight Show. Kravitz said that she was required to spend time with cats behind the scenes. 

“They tried to get me to know the cats that were Selina’s cats,” said Kravitz. “And it’s funny, they would say, ‘Training at 1:30, and then rehearsal at this time, and then cat time,’ and I was like, ‘What’s cat time?’ And it was just putting me in a room with a bunch of cats, the cats that were going to be my cats.” 

Kravits also said that she employed method acting by drinking milk out of a bowl, lapping it up just like a cat. “I did that,” she convinced a disbelieving Fallon. “I’m method, dude.”

Zoë Kravitz posted photos that prove she went method for her role as Catwoman

Jimmy Fallon may have had a hard time believing that Zoë Kravitz drank milk out of a bowl like a cat, but the actor recently shared photos on her Instagram that prove her dedication to the Catwoman role

Kravitz posted 10 images in one post, two of which depicted her lapping up milk. The first shot was a close-up of her face, partially obscured by the Catwoman mask, leaning over a bowl of milk. Her lips were slightly parted as she dipped her fingers into the milk, leaving a trail of liquid behind.

The ninth shot shows Kravitz on her hands and knees, kneeling over the bowl of milk, still in her Catwoman mask. Her tongue is sticking out, about to lap up the liquid like a feline. 

Fans can’t believe how far the actor went to commit to her role in ‘The Batman’

Zoë Kravitz’s fans are cracking jokes online about how far the actor went to prepare for her role as the Catwoman.

“I wish I was the milk,” one fan tweeted in a sentiment echoed by many others.

“Pattinson went a step farther and actually had his parents murdered,” one fan joked on Twitter, while another tweeted, “True method would’ve been to poop in a box of gravel…”

“Did you kno Zoe Kravitz drank milk like a cat to prepare for her role in Batman????” one fan started a joke on Twitter. “And also used a litterbox? and also got into the trash and ate my old floss? and also scratched at the door for 30 minutes then ran away once i opened it? she uses a lot of this in the film.”
