Remember we talked about Anne Hathaway having to drop 16 pounds in just a few weeks? No? OK, that’s because we didn’t. But she did. She was told that she had to lose 16 pounds over a three-week period in order to get the “I’m dying!” look that her role in the new Les Miserables reboot dictated. And she did! And this was the end result, but Anne Hathaway was pretty skinny to begin with, so honestly, I don’t see too much of a difference. She’s playing Fantine, a prostitute who’s dying of fatal tuberculosis. She’s supposed to look like this. She’s skinny is all. I definitely thought she’d be less busty, though, that’s for sure.
Last, I’m with Emily when she says that she’s super excited for this movie. I saw it on Broadway back in my Sophomore year of high school, and honestly, I didn’t care too much about that business at the time. And then in my Junior year, when we actually read the book, I was like, “Damn. Wish I’d paid more attention. Why would you let us see the play first anyway?” Gotta love those district administrators who work so hard to be hand-in-hand with what’s going on in the educational curriculum of high schoolers.
