Hathaway, Jackman brave cold for Les Mis red carpet

  • Print

LONDON -- Hollywood stars Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman have braved the London cold to walk the red carpet for the world premiere of Les Miserables.

Hathaway said at the premiere Wednesday that playing the role of Fantine in the film adaptation of Les Mis was a dream job she would have done anything to land, describing the gig as "the sort of job you should give your paycheque back" for.

The 30-year-old actress lost 25 pounds and cut her hair to play the role of a struggling, sickly mother forced into prostitution in 1800s Paris in the screen adaptation of Victor Hugo's classic.

Joined by Jackman and other co-stars Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried, Hathaway signed autographs and met fans in central London at the event.
