Anne Hathaway – Fantine in “Les Misérables”
On trying to appreciate everything in her life since “Les Misérables”, “As a woman born in 1982, I take for granted so many freedoms that Fantine wouldn’t even dream of.”
On working in theater vs. film, “Right now I’m doing ‘The Heiress’ and it’s a 900 seat house, the performance is very different from what it would be if we were making a film of it. In film, you can think the thoughts and the camera is an extension of your soul so you see it. But in theater you have to make sure the person way in the back is able to see it. so this means you have to highten your stakes and make it more important because then it looks more visible.”
On understanding her character’s responsibility in “The Master”, “Women were given responsibility in wartime, and then it was back to the kitchen and take care of your man. It was a real interesting time for women. The perception of what was available in that era was so different.”
