Kate Bosworth looked to Oscar-winning actresses Katharine Hepburn and Julia Roberts for inspiration on how to play the part of Lois Lane in SUPERMAN RETURNS. The BLUE CRUSH star was intimidated by the role because it has been played by so many other actresses in the past and decided to study her acting idols to help her identify with her character. She explains, "I watched a lot of Katharine Hepburn movies. I wanted to draw from actresses who conducted themselves with strength and poise. "So it was a loot of Hepburn movies...and Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich."
