Zoë Kravitz’s still training as Catwoman in lockdown


Call her, “Krav-woman.” Zoë Kravitz (The Batman) has previously detailed her infamous training regime to prepare for the role of Catwoman in Matt Reeves‘ upcoming The Batman, and now that production on the movie has temporarily shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic, the actress says she is doing her best to stay in supervillain form.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Kravitz was asked what she could share about The Batman and her role as Selina Kyle. To no one’s surprised the Big Little Lies actress didn’t spill anything earth-shattering.

She did say that she continues to work out with a virtual trainer, so she can fit into the cat suit.

So I mean, it’s not like the studio called and said, ‘Don’t get fat, bitch,’ she explained. “But I had been training now for maybe four or five months and the first couple weeks that I self quarantined, I remember texting the director, I texted Matt and I was like, ‘We might have to make the cat suit a few sizes bigger when this is over.”

Kravitz has now committed to a new five-day training schedule, and says she enjoys leaving her weekends free to indulge in “food, wine and weed.

“It’s actually been really great just for my mental health. And kind of foods, kind of the only thing that I have, food and wine bringing me joy right now. So I’m definitely eating whatever the f*ck I want. But yeah, try to stay in decent shape so I don’t have to start from scratch.”
