Anne Hathaway says she looked like her gay brother

With the theatrical release of Les Misérables only about a month away, it’s a sure thing that we’ll hearing tons of commentary and seeing lots of behind the scenes footage from the movie’s all-star cast. But so far, it’s been Hollywood sweetheart Anne Hathaway—who plays the tuberculosis ridden prostitute Fantine—who took center stage at an exclusive screening of Tom Hooper’s movie musical last Friday at the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York. When talking about having to buzz off most of her hair for her role, Hathaway joked with the audience that when “I eventually looked in the mirror I just thought I looked like my gay brother.” She commented that having to shear most of her hair off was an extreme role requirement that she later realized would mean she would “be almost bald” during her September wedding to Adam Shulman.  This wasn’t the only drastic change the 30-year-old actress underwent, as Hathaway reportedly dropped 25 pounds for her role as the destitute sex worker. ~Brandon Bastaldo

    I wish I could act so people would manage my weight for me… Dieticians, food brought to me, trainers… 25 lbs less and I would be a super model.
