As she returns to acting for the first time since becoming a mom, Anne Hathaway says she can't wait to grill her superstar Ocean’s Eight castmates on parenting.

The 33-year-old actress, who became a first-time mom to son Jonathan in March, is part of the film's star-studded cast, along with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling.

"Honestly, right now I am looking forward to the hair and makeup trailer," Hathaway told ET’s Cameron Mathison at the Toronto International Film Festival. “Oh my god, I have so many questions. They are fun and a lot of them are moms, so I am excited that my first film back as a mom, I get to work with women who have done it before and I get to ask them questions about that."

Hathaway, who was at the festival promoting Colossal, added that she's just as thrilled to learn from the actresses on a professional level.

"I just feel like I am getting to peer behind the best curtain ever to see what everybody does," she gushed. "My career has been a series of working with people that are better than me and trying to pick up things that they do, pull them into my life and hopefully get better myself. So I cannot believe I get to do that with the women on this."

Ocean’s Eight isn't the only upcoming project for The Devil Wears Prada star, who married husband Adam Shulman in 2012.

She is also set to star in Live Fast and Die Hot, a drama based on a memoir by Jenny Mollen, which deals with the struggles of juggling motherhood with other responsibilities. Hathaway says her own transition into parenting was a huge influence in why she took the role.

“The book landed in a very real way because I knew what she was talking about,” she explained. “Which is not to say you need to be a mom to understand it. Jenny Mollen is just a really funny writer and you would enjoy it whether or not you are a parent, but for me it hit a chord.”
