“I never thought that this would be like the turn in my career, that I’m now this like super-hero,” Berry said during an appearance on ABC’s The View on Friday morning. “But with Catwoman, it’s such an iconic character, and it’s been done so well before.
“Initially, I did think, ‘Why would I want to do it?’ I thought I could bring something hopefully different to it. It’s a different woman. It’s a whole decade later from the last time Michelle Pfeiffer did it.
“And it’s still a woman who is so empowered. Catwoman lives life her way, but her own rules. And there’s something really seductive about playing that kind of character.”
One of the early promotional images was shown, and Berry was asked how she came to look so muscular.
“I’ve been really working hard with a trainer, and he’s got me on this high-protein, low-carb diet,” Berry said. “Not losing weight, but actually, in my case, to gain weight in some places and lose weight in some places.”
Berry revealed a trick that emphasizes the toned nature of her body.
“They put this shiny, silvery powder on me and oil and light it right,” Berry said. “Everybody can look like they have muscles, it’s true.
“Actually, when I saw it, I said, ‘Whose body did they put my head on?’ And they said, ‘No, it’s just lit like that.’ That’s what bodybuilders do.”
