Anne Hathaway credits her new husband Adam Schulman for helping her get through the gruelling filming of the screen adaptation of Les Miserables.
In Les Mis, the 30-year-old actress plays Fantine, a struggling, sickly mother forced into prostitution in 1800s Paris.
Anne lost nearly 2st and cut her hair for the role. She tells the December issue of Vogue that the part left her in a "state of deprivation, physical and emotional".
She said she felt easily overwhelmed but partner Adam was understanding and supportive.
The couple wed in September in Big Sur, California. Anne wore a custom gown by Valentino whom she collaborated with on the design.
Working with the designer was a memory she says she will "treasure forever".
