The musical theater nerd inside her must be scuh-reaming right now. You know, in addition the one on the outside. EW reports that we may soon see Anne Hathway in Les Miserables, belting it out as Fantine, mother to moppet Cosette, in the film version of the musical. Hathaway’s character must rely on the help of Hugh Jackman‘s Jean Valjean, which we’re hoping means they are singing each other congratulations over the phone right…now.
It’s only been two years since Hathaway and Jackman showed off their pipes in a duet at the 2009 Oscars, and just a few shorts months since Anne awkwardly sang “On My Own” to Hugh during her Oscars hosting gig. $10 says the Les Mis producers heard her version of the song from the musical-turned-movie and decided to hire her. $10 also says that we’ll also never actually find that out for sure.
