Holly Hunter Calls Role in 'Batman v Superman' 'Nothing But Fun'

The actress plays Sen. Finch in the new superhero movie.

"I totally wanted to be part of this," Hunter, 57, told "Good Morning America" news anchor Amy Robach. "There's no downside to it. It's nothing but fun."

"And I thought that, you know, as a senator, she brought her female-ness to the job in how she listened in her curiosity, in her ability to evaluate," Hunter said of her character. "[It] felt very female to me."

Hunter had only high praise for 32-year-old Cavill, with whom she spent the most time filming.

"Henry is utterly adorable ... just a lovely guy," she said. "Utterly lovely."

"Batman v Superman" opens in theaters March 25.
