Anne Hathaway & 'Les Miserables' Cast Cover 'THR'
“There was resistance because I was between their ideal ages for the parts — maybe not mature enough for Fantine but past the point where I could believably play Cosette [Fantine’s daughter, later embodied by Seyfried],” Anne told the mag. “And I did what I do when I really want a role: I got fiery and told my agent, ‘Just get me in the room.’”
“I just had to stop eating,” Anne added about her character’s poverty stricken lifestyle, “all for a total of 13 days’ shooting.”
“Les Miserables was a magnificent experience,” Russell said. “The challenge of it, the beauty of it, the camaraderie — it was such a profound experience that I’m sure every time I start a new movie, some part of me will be wishing I was starting Les Mis again.”
