"It took me about a half an hour to muster up the courage." Hathaway is playing the troubled Fantine in the film, which is set for a December 25, 2012 release. Check out her appearance below!
Les Miserables originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre on 4 December 1985 and moved to its current home at the Queen's Theatre on 3 April 2004.

In January 2010, the West End production broke another record by celebrating its historic 10,000th performance.
The film, under the direction of Tom Hooper will also star Russell Crowe as Javert, Sacha Baron Cohen as Thernardier, Eddie Redmayne as Marius, Aaron Tveit as Enjolras, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Samantha Barks as Eponine, and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thenardier.
