Katie Couric: Emma Fitzpatrick Anne Hathaway Viral Video
Anne Hathaway has been getting more buzz than she expected but it isn’t because of her performance in Les Miserables, it is because of Emma Fitzpatrick and her viral video where she sings a song from Les Miserables with her own lyrics to go with the melody.
Fitzpatrick told Katie Couric she and a director friend of hers made the video after the director of the video asked her what she thought about the idea. Fitzpatrick, a huge Les Miserables fan, said she and the director hired a writer to come up with lyrics for them and then they tried out everything he wrote for them and figured out what they thought would be the most funny.
Fitzpatrick said only hours after uploading the video to YouTube, it had already been retweeted or reposted on Facebook by around 80 people. She said she was shocked so many liked it. The video has garnered Fitzpatrick, an actress, a lot of attention and she said the momentum has been good for her career.
