#DAN HATHAWAY Anne Hathaway says she wasn’t too shocked when she saw her reflection after shaving off her hair for her role in Les Miserables… because she just looked like her brother. (New York Daily News)

At a screening of the film in New York last week Hathaway said:

When I eventually looked in the mirror I just thought I looked like my gay brother.

Hathaway and her family left the Catholic Church a few years ago because of its stance on homosexuality. She said “why should I support an organisation that as a limited view of my beloved brother?”.

Hathaway has also told Vogue that preparing for the role of prostitute Fantine in Les Mis left her in a “state of deprivation… physical and emotional”.

Have a look (and try not to cry):
