‘I looked like my gay brother': Anne Hathaway in Les Misérables

The Emmy Award-winning actress told preview audiences that she resembled her gay brother with her hair cut short for the upcoming film

‘I looked like my gay brother': Anne Hathaway in Les Misérables
25 November 2012

Audiences previewed the highly anticipated Les Misérables with Anne Hathaway, Russel Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter and Amanda Seyfried at New York’s Lincoln Center on Friday (November 23).

Hathaway, who had to lose 25 pounds and a full head of hair for the role of Fantine, admitted to the audience that she didn’t mind cutting her hair so short.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Dark Knight Rises star told the audience: ‘When I eventually looked in the mirror I just thought I looked like my gay brother’.

Since her role as the wife of a gay cowboy in 2005 Brokeback Mountain, Hathaway has referred to her gay brother in her public support of gay marriage.

The Devil Wears Prada star told British GQ two years ago that her family left the Catholic Church because of its position on homosexuality.

‘The whole family converted to Episcopalianism after my elder brother came out. Why should I support an organization that has a limited view of my beloved brother?’

 Les Misérables premieres in the UK and US 11 January 2013. Click below for the trailer for Les Misérables.
