Hair we go! Anne Hathaway lops her flowing brunette locks into a choppy short style for Les Miserables role



By Leah Simpson

She’s admitted to cutting her daily food intake down to only 500 calories for her latest film role but that’s not the only extreme Anne Hathaway is having to go through.

The actress who usually flaunts a thick mane of long brunette locks has trimmed her hair to barely one inch in length, in order to achieve the look of her character in the forthcoming movie, Les Miserables.

The 29-year-old was pictured leaving London’s The Box nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning with the newly cropped do.

Pretty Hathaway looked especially gaunt as she left the venue with fiancé Adam Shulman and their friends.

As they hopped into a taxi she tried to conceal her fresh crop from onlookers who took a while to catch on to her identity.

Grabbing her head as she made her way home, she is evidently still getting used to her short style.

Wearing a dark coat and blue jeans, as expected she appeared noticeably slimmer than usual as she has embarked on a hardcore diet for her part in the film.

She plays Fantine, a struggling factory worker who is forced into prostitution to provide for her illegitimate child and ends up selling her hair for financial gain.

A film source told the Daily Mirror: 'Anne is playing a destitute factory worker-come-lady of the night.

'Unfortunately, she only has 15 to 20 days to lose as much weight as possible - up to a stone-and-a-half - because she’s been filming the scenes showing her fit and healthy, almost slightly chubby.

'It’s not ideal but, as with any high-budget movie, there are strict time constraints.'

The star looked a far cry from the glamorous situations we are used to seeing her in but for Anne the dramatic decision was all for the greater good.

While many stars opt to don a hairpiece to save their precious tresses, Anne was clearly determined to be as authentic as possible for the musical motion picture.
