Anne Hathaway: Les Miserables Haircut

Academy Award-nominated actress Anne Hathaway is currently one of Hollywood’s brightest stars. Her next big role is in the highly anticipated musical Les Miserables, in which she will play Fantine. When Anne came out to join Seth and Kelly on “Live With Kelly” July 12, it was hard to miss her new cropped, pixie-style haircut. Anne revealed to Kelly that cutting off so much hair led to her to “mental patient level crying.”

However, it was actually her own idea to cut her hair in order to play Fantine, so when she started to have doubts, she knew she couldn’t back out of it. It’s a good thing she didn’t, because she looks great. It’s only hair, Anne– it will grow back! Les Miserables also stars Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe, and is set to be released this December.

Kelly offered to throw Anne a wedding on “Live.” Anne agreed but only if they could use the dog wedding planner!

Anne Hathaway: Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises is the highly anticipated sequel to 2008’s The Dark Knight, directed by Chrisopher Nolan. The all-star ensemble cast also includes  Christian Bale as Batman and Tom Hardy as the diabolical villain out to terrorize Gotham, Bane.


Anne has taken on the legendary role of Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, one of the most infamous comic book characters of all time. Kelly referred to the role as “the role of a lifetime.” It’s a big suit to fill!

However, according to Seth (who is an enormous Batman fan), Anne did a fantastic job. He has seen the film already, and called Anne “the best Catwoman ever.” Seth got so excited discussing the film, Kelly had to start fanning him with her notes!

Anne Hathaway: Donning the Cat Suit

Kelly, Seth, and Anne looked at a picture of Anne in the skin-tight Cat Suit. Anne revealed that the suit was actually quite flexible– the accessories were leather, but the suit itself was made of a stretchy fabric that the costume team developed. However, indulging in food was something that Anne had to forego for a while. She said that she would ask the film’s DP, Wally, to let her “smell his dessert.”

They then watched a clip from the film, in which Selina threatens Bruce Wayne from behind a mask. The clip had Seth mesmerized, probably like most Batman fans. The Dark Knight Rises is poised to be one of the biggest blockbusters of all time, so don’t miss it when it opens in theaters on July 20 2012.
