Anne Hathaway sheds some hair … and tears.
Hathaway surprised her fans, even upset some, when she cut off her long chestnut hair into a rather boyish hairdo for the film adaptation of the Broadway musical, Les Miserables, where she will be playing Fantine, the dying prostitute.
The actress confessed her trauma last Thursday on Live! With Kelly. Anne, 29, admitted:
I wasn’t expecting it to be a big deal. It was my idea to do it, since it was something the character did … [But then] I realized I couldn’t take it back.
She also said that she broke down to hysteria at the time. She said:
[I was] a mental patient level of crying … I was inconsolable.
The drastic haircutting was a lot harder than “doing back flips out of windows and jumping off buildings,” she added.
Well, Hathaway will probably get her long hair back again when she walks down the aisle. She and her fiancé Adam Shulman, a fellow thespian, are set to get married in October 2013.
