Anne Hathaway On The Bumpy Ride That Was Les Miserables
With Les Miserables performing well on the big screen, the critics on board and a strong financial return forecasted, the stars can finally sit back and relax after what sounds like an awfully hard production.
Anne Hathaway - one of the film's many stars - has been talking to The Telegraph about her role in the film, which she described as a mixture of "anxiety, gratitude, excitement and nerves," before admitting that "There wasn't anything about this job that wasn't daunting."
Given the star-studded cast, it wasn't as if Hathaway was the only person feeling the heat to bring such a widely loved stage show to life on the silver screen. "It was exciting to work with everyone, to hear what they were doing," she said "I think hearing how talented everyone else was pushed us all on, pushed me on at least."
For the film, Hathaway had to lose a lot of weight, and even though she's hesitant to talk about that subject too much, so as to not give people tips on quick weight loss, which can be dangerous, she was quick to explain how the dieting affected her moods.
"There was one day when, I kid you not, I picked a fight with him because he wouldn't watch a sunset with me," the actress recalled to The Mirror.
"I was like, 'Honey, it's the most incredible sunset you've ever seen, we have to go outside right now and see it.' And he was like, 'Honey, I'm on a business call. So just [give me] five minutes.' And I was like, 'Fine. That's great for you.' And I sat there, and I didn't even make it the whole five minutes. I just got up."
