Anne Hathaway looks absolutely lovely on the latest cover of Vogue magazine.
The Oscar-nominated actress stars in the upcoming film adaptation of “Les Misérables,” a role she had to lose 25 pounds for. As she explained, “I had to be obsessive about it–the idea was to look near death. Looking back on the whole experience–and I don’t judge it in any way—it was definitely a little nuts. It was definitely a break with reality, but I think that’s who Fantine is anyway.”
One of the benefits of her role? Ditching her trademark long locks. “I love the short-haired lifestyle. It’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 it’s dry.”
Hathaway even opened up about designing her wedding dress with Valentino. “I begged him during the first fitting to make the train detachable. He looked at me and said, ‘But it is a dress, not a costume.’ The memory of creating it with him is something that I will treasure forever. He somehow read my mind and designed the dress that I’d always wanted.”
