It's been a heck of a year for Anne Hathaway having earned major praise as Catwoman in this summer's blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises. And now with the Christmas Day release of Les Misérables and Oscar buzz surrounding her role as Fantine, it's only getting better.
The actress talked to E! News about how she and her cast mates got acquainted before filming began on director Tom Hooper's big screen adaptation of the hit stage musical. She also expounded on life after turning the big 3-0.
When it came to meeting her costars for the first time, Hathaway said it was just a matter of getting together and loosening up, a task she credited to Russell Crowe, who plays Inspector Javert.
