Anne Hathaway has been busy promoting ‘Les Miserables’, and in a recent interview [via I Am Rogue], talks about how she couldn’t relate to her character Fantine.

She says, “In my case, there’s no way that I could relate to what my character was going through. I have a very successful life and don’t have any children that I could give up or keep so what I did was tried to get inside the reality of her story as it exists in our world. To do that, I read a lot of articles and watched a lot of documentaries and news clips about sexual slavery. For me, for this particular story, I came to the realization that I was thinking of Fantine as someone who lived in the past but she doesn’t. She’s living in New York City right now. She’s probably less than a block away. This injustice exists in our world so every day that I was her, I thought, ‘This isn’t an invention. This isn’t me acting. This is me honoring that this pain lives in this world’. And, I hope that, in all of our lifetimes, like today, we see it end."
 
Anne Hathaway has also revealed to MTV News that she cried while watching herself in ‘Les Miserables’, but not because of her performance.

She said, “I cry, but I think it's because I'm still connected to the experience of making it, the process.  For me, when I see it, I actually have to be aware when I'm doing press, because it brings me a lot closer to Fantine. She's so broken that I actually have to protect myself a little bit. So when I saw it, I did cry, but not because of what I was doing [on screen]. It was because I was back in the process of making it."
