By the time, Anne Hathaway arrived to do backstage press at the 85th Annual Academy Awards, some three hours had elapsed since her Best Supporting Actress win. She was composed. She was articulate. 

And then she was reduced to tears.

A reporter took the Les Misérables star back to her acceptance speech, and asked the actress to explain her very first words, "It came true."

What was "it?"

"I had a dream," Hathaway started, before faltering and choking up. "…And it came true. And it can happen. And it's wonderful."

Chalk the moment up as another Les Mis tear-jerker.
