The Dark Knight Rises actress revealed that she finds the competition to be thrilling, admitting that she is often on the edge of her seat.
"I totally get geeky about the Olympics," Hathaway told Vulture. "There's so much tension, you don't know what's going to happen!
"You know that swim that Michael Phelps just had where he tied for the record but came in silver, and it looked like up until the final millisecond he was going to win? My heart jumped into my throat."
She went on to say that she'd love to be a part of Team USA.
"I would love to be on the US women's gymnastics team or the US women's swim team," Hathaway said. "There is no basis for this wish - I can't dive, swim, or tumble - but I really think those look fun."
The actress recently revealed that she'd love to reprise her role as Catwoman in future films.
