Vivienne Westwood may have called Kate Middleton "ordinary" this week but the Duchess has another famous face in her corner: Anne Hathaway.

Sitting down with USA TODAY's Andrea Mandell to talk about her new movie One Day, Hathaway took a royal minute to talk about style.

"Can I tell you how grateful I am to Kate Middleton?" said Hathaway. "Because she is such an advocate for dressing like a lady. I think for a few years that kind of slightly dirty look was adopted by Hollywood - you know, the stringy hair, homeless thing. And I really tried," she laughs, "I was like ok I'm going to give that a go. (But) it doesn't suit me, I don't suit it. I always looked kind of chubby."

Today she calls Kate's ladylike wardrobe inspiring. "I'm just very grateful to Kate Middleton for making looking appropriate really fun again," she says. "So right now my fashion choices are all about Kate Middleton."

Speaking of fashion, Hathaway dished on getting into Catwoman shape for Dark Knight Rises, which is currently shooting in Pittsburgh. "I had to change my body in order to achieve the shape I wanted for Catwoman," says Hathaway, noting how each body-hugging catsuit fitting represented personal milestones.

"We fit it over the course of a few months, and every time I would target a different body part we could take off the Spanx," she laughs. "So it's not your traditional movie prep."

It also meant the actress had to stock up on flats. "There's a reason why she wears heels," says Hathaway, but "doing stunts in heels is a little hard on your feet. Normally I live in high heels (but) I have to wear flats all day and just kind of save up all my high heel time for the catsuit."
