Anne Hathaway - Anne Hathaway Suffered Conscience Crisis Working On Les Miserables

Actress Anne Hathaway battled a "crisis of conscience" while filming dock scenes for movie musical Les Miserables because the vegan star had to step on dead fish for the shoot.

The Hollywood beauty adopted a vegan diet after finishing work on this year's (12) Batman blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises, and had fake leather shoes specially made for her character Fantine to fit her new lifestyle - but she had no idea director Tom Hooper would be using real, rotten fish to recreate the authentic feel of the desperate streets of 19th Century France as they made Les Miserables.

She explains, "For some reason, for the dock scenes, (Hooper) wanted us to have dead fish, for days, and days and days on end and of course this was the first role that I've done since going vegan, so there I am in period-looking pleather shoes, stepping on dead fish, and I was having a real crisis of conscience."

Hathaway wasn't the only castmember struggling to stomach the smell: "Russell (Crowe) came in... and he just reacted like, 'What is this fetid air?' It's hilarious."
