I love, love, love Anne Hathaway! She's quick-witted and sweet-natured and it's always a pleasure interviewing her. Oh, when I walked into the room, instead of shaking my hand, she gave me a big hug, yes, we're not big hug buddies, and I'm very happy!
Hathaway is having a great year -- playing Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises," and now Fantine in "Les Miserables." Two great roles from two great movies in one whole year. Not to mention that the actress just got married and turned 30! Lots of big events for one of my favorite actresses. Wait until you see her signature "Les Miserables" song "I Dreamed a Dream" -- she will make you cry buckets!
In this interview, we talked about:
*** She loves my shirt, she tells me I'll get an award, so I bounce back by telling her she'll get an Oscar -- watch her reaction
*** Such dedication to the craft!
*** Working with director Tom Hooper
*** Auditioning for the role
*** The sung-through process
*** The vulnerability of singing while acting
*** How she lost 25 lbs in 5 weeks to play Fantine
***2012 as her year!
*** And I ended it by congratulating her for her Oscar!
