Anne Hathaway: 'I Was Inconsolable After Haircut'
Star was left in floods of tears after Les Miserables hair chopping scene...
Anne Hathaway has revealed that she was "inconsolable" after getting her hair cut short for her role in Les Miserables.
The Hollywood star - who also lost a significant amount of weight for the role - told The Mirror that her transformation into the movie's poverty stricken single mum Fantine was one of the hardest things she has ever done.
"I called my husband and was on the phone with him. I looked in the mirror and I said 'I look like my gay brother. I'm just Man Hathaway'.
"I realised I couldn't take it back. It had the effect of changing my identity. I was reduced to a mental patient level of crying... I was inconsolable.
"I put it up there with the most difficult things I've ever had to do, which I wasn't expecting. I didn't think I was that vain. There was nothing I could do to prepare for it. You train the stunt, you sing the song, you train your voice.
"This was just letting it happen and accepting whatever the results were going to be."
And the 30-year-old star explained that she had taken volunteered to have her locks chopped.
"When I got cast and I read the script, and I knew they were keeping the hair cutting in, and then I read the book and it's such a devastating scene, I thought doing it for real might raise the stakes a bit.
"And I guess in the back of my mind, I thought it if was a painful experience watching her haircut, then watching her teeth get pulled would be really painful.
"And as an actor, it was great to be able to authentically communicate a physical transformation."
Anne was also upset recently after accidentally flashing paps at the movie's NYC premiere.
