Anne Hathaway knows modest is the hottest.

In a recent interview with with the Los Angeles Times, the Les Misérables star rated her final "I Dreamed a Dream" performance as "eh."

The 30-year-old actress said the film's director, Tom Hooper, let her perform over a dozen takes of the famed Les Mis song, even after he thought she did it perfectly on Take 4. After 20 takes, Hooper told the Golden Globe nominee she needed to move on.

Here more from Anne about her Les Mis success

"And I was like, 'Fair enough,'" she recalled. "I never bettered it."

And while she felt "eh" about her final rendition, others have certainly lauded her moving performance in the film. Including, perhaps Anne's most important critic, her mother, Kate, who said her daughter made "the perfect Fantine."

We'd have to agree.
