Anne Hathaway covers the December issue of Vogue Magazine, and Annie Leibovitz shot the pictures! (Am I the only one who isn’t crazy about these photos? Annie could have done better, if you ask me.)
Anne is obviously promoting her new movie, ‘Les Miserables’, and is gunning for that Oscar nomination. The interview that goes along with the cover is very heavy on the ‘Les Mis’ talk.
Here are some highlights from the interview via Celebitchy:
Anne on cutting her hair off:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅI love the short-haired lifestyle,Ã¢â¬Â Hathaway tells me with a laugh (she laughs a lot). Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢s awesome that I was able to go for a hike right before I came here to meet you, quickly wash my hair, and now itÃ¢â¬â¢s dry.Ã¢â¬Â The only downside, she says, is having to get her hair cut every three weeks. Ã¢â¬ÅBut IÃ¢â¬â¢m turning 30, andÃ¢â¬âI hope this isnÃ¢â¬â¢t obnoxious to sayÃ¢â¬âI feel prettier, and much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now.Ã¢â¬Â
Pres. Obama called Anne Ã¢â¬Åthe best thingÃ¢â¬Â in The Dark Knight Rises:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m a blusher, and just being inches from him, I went scarlet from the tips of my toes to the tops of my ears.Ã¢â¬Â
Auditioning for Les Mis:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅI knew that someone was going to have to go in there and do something pretty special to unseat me,Ã¢â¬Â she says. Ã¢â¬ÅSometimes you leave a room and you feel like maybe youÃ¢â¬â¢ve left the door open a crack. This time, I knew that I had slammed it shut behind me.Ã¢â¬Â
Losing weightÃÂ for the role:ÃÂ Before the start of shooting, she went on a strict cleanse and lost ten pounds, which in the early scenes ofÃÂ the filmÃÂ gives her a gossamerÃÂ quality. She then took two weeks off and lost another fifteen pounds by following a near-starvation diet, consisting of two thin squares of dried oatmeal paste a day. Ã¢â¬ÅI had to be obsessive about itÃ¢â¬âthe idea was to look near death,Ã¢â¬Â she recalls. Ã¢â¬ÅLooking back on the whole experienceÃ¢â¬âand I donÃ¢â¬â¢t judge it in any wayÃ¢â¬âit was definitely a little nuts. It was definitely aÃÂ breakÃÂ with reality, but I think thatÃ¢â¬â¢s who Fantine is anyway.Ã¢â¬Â
On her wedding:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅOh, my God, I had a blast. Our friends stayed and partied and danced till really late.Ã¢â¬Â
She wants to be a mom:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅAnd now, of course, with me having this beyond-my-wildest-dreams success in my own careerÃ¢â¬âand beyond the success, the joy I take just getting to be an actorÃ¢â¬âknowing what that must have been like for her to put that aside for the good of her children. Oh, my God. I want to be a mother, and I anticipate loving my children quite fiercely. I think about it all the time, though itÃ¢â¬â¢s a silly thing to think about because the kind of mother IÃ¢â¬â¢ll be depends on the kind of children I have. I canÃ¢â¬â¢t wait to meet them.Ã¢â¬Â For now, she feels as if sheÃ¢â¬â¢s right where sheÃ¢â¬â¢s meant to be. Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢d feel a little silly and overly dramatic to say that this feels like destiny. But to have this come full circle in such a spectacular wayÃ¢â¬âitÃ¢â¬â¢s making me very happyÃ¢â¬Â¦ OK, it feels a little like destiny.Ã¢â¬Â
Do you think Anne might finally get that Oscar? I, for one, cannot WAIT to see the movie. I think it’s going to be really good, I have high hopes!
