Many Speculating that Anne Hathaway Could Win Academy Award for Role as Fantine

Universal Pictures is releasing a screen adaption of the musical ‘Les Miserables’ on December 25th. Blair Stover reports that the musical film will be starring Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway.

Anne Hathaway plays the ill-fated Fantine who becomes sick and turns to prostitution as a means to support her daughter. Hathaway shows off her impressive set of pipes with a musical number that is sure to bring a tear to the theater audience.

Hathaway had to go through some dramatic changes for this role. She had to lose 25 pounds and chopped off her hair to look more like the disease-ridden Fantine. Her first reaction to seeing her short hair was thinking that she ‘looked like her gay brother, Michael!’

Hathaway’s powerful role as Fantine has won over the crowd and many are expecting her to win the Best Supporting Actress award at the upcoming Academy Awards.

Other ‘Les Miserables’ co-stars include Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfriend, Sacha Baron Cohen, Colm Wilkinson and many others.
