Hollywood stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway are set to appear on the big screen in Les Misérables later this year. Hugh has been talking about the pressure of the expectation that is surrounding the movie, while admitting that it is also very exciting and exhilarating to work and the film.
Jackman told Vogue, “The stakes were as high as they could possibly be every day and that sort of cauldron of expectation and pressure and excitement was exhilarating. [Valjean is] one of the great literary characters of all time; a real study of the human spirit under the worst adversity possible.”
Meanwhile, Anne Hathaway admitted that she was extremely proud to be playing the character Fantine, “Fantine is a warrior for love. She's willing to sacrifice everything - her sense of right and wrong, her looks, her very life - for her child,” she added.
As well as Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables also stars Russell Crowe, Helena Bonham Carter, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne. Les Misérables is released in the US on December 25 before being released in the UK on January 11.
