Hot or Not? Anne Hathaway’s Chopped Locks for ‘Les Miserables’
Anne Hathaway chopped off her signature brunette locks for the film adaptation of Les Miserables. What do you think of her new look?
Man, the stars are changing up their looks left and right in the name of the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables! A couple of weeks ago, we caught a glimpse of Hugh Jackman’s drastic makeunder for the film—and now we’ve got a look at the new ‘do that Anne Hathaway has gotten for it: A super short pixie cut.
According to the UK Daily Mail, this pics were snapped early on Sunday morning as Anne and her, fiancé Adam Shulman, left The Box, a cabaret nightclub in London’s West End. Though the actress is well-known for her thick brunette mane, she recently chopped everything off. Why? Les Mis, of course! Anne recently started shooting the film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, in which she’s playing Fantine. A factory worker in 19th century France who finds herself unjustly fired from her job, Fantine resorts to selling her belongings, her hair, and finally herself as a prostitute in order to feed herself and her small daughter, Cosette. Naturally, then, Anne’s hair had to go.
So what do you think: Hot or not? Anne is blessed with wonderful bone structure, so not unlike Natalie Portman circa V for Vendetta, I think she pulls it off quite well. No doubt the lack of hair took some getting used to, though!
Furthermore, her hair isn’t the only thing she’s had to lose to play the role; Anne has also had to drop a couple of pounds. Hard to believe, given how slim she is, isn’t it? Thankfully, though, the actress isn’t in fact on the extreme crash diet that UK paper The Mirror would have us believe she’s on. In response to the Mirror’s article, Anne’s rep, Stephen Huvane, recently told the Huffington Post, “The story is a huge exaggeration. Anne is on a special diet, but is not looking to lose that much weight and she’s consuming more than 500 calories a day. She just needs to look more frail as she is playing a prostitute who is dying of tuberculosis.” Thank goodness for that!
As Fantine, Anne will get to sing the classic number, “I Dreamed a Dream:”
I don’t know about you, Bettys, but I think she’s going to rock it!
