Tough role far from 'Miserable' for actress

Rhiannon William

ANNE Hathaway said being cast as tragic heroine Fantine in the film adaptation of 'Les Miserables' was her "dream" job, as she attended the movie's world premiere.

Despite losing almost two stone and having her long hair cropped to play the factory worker turned prostitute, the American actress admitted she would have done anything for the part.

Oozing Hollywood style as she took to the red carpet in London's Leicester Square wearing a bejewelled Givenchy gown.

Asked if she would have gone beyond the drastic lengths of cutting her hair and slimming down to play her emaciated character, Hathaway added: "I didn't have to pull out my teeth, but no one asked, so yes, I would do anything."

The star was joined by director Tom Hooper and co-stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne on the red carpet.

The film also stars Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron-Cohen and will hit screens on January 11.
