Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway On ‘Les Misérables’ & Oscar Season

A short interview with Huffington Post was released yesterday, featuring Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway speaking about Les Misérables. They aren’t able to touch upon too many subjects, but Anne does squeeze in some lovely sentiments regarding her co-star (as seen below). At the end, Hugh mentions that he would like to do more movie-musicals… although perhaps that’s to be expected from such a beloved Broadway star. Check out the excerpt below before heading to the source for more; it’s also been added to the press archive.

AP: Do you feel at all simpatico?
Jackman: I’ve always felt simpatico with Anne ever since we met. When we first started to really work together on the Oscars thing, I instantly loved her. I’ve been hounding Annie to do any number of films.
Hathaway: (Biting her sweater) It’s hard when someone you admire so much says nice things about you. I’ve just admired you. I think I’ve probably known about you longer than you’ve known about me. Hugh was always this myth in the Broadway and West End community. And though I never did a show, I did a lot of workshops and readings and things like that. Everybody had a Hugh Jackman story. Hugh’s always been this beacon of light out there, someone who could do theater and film.
