Director Tom Hooper Made Stars Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway Audition For ‘Les Miserables’

One of the perks of being a big star is not having to audition for parts. After all, if an actor is well-known enough, his or her reputation and ability precedes him or her. But that wasn’t the case for the next big movie musical, Les Miserables. Despite stars like Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, and Anne Hathaway starring in the film, director Tom Hooper made all of them audition for their roles.

Biography: Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway was honored with an Academy Award® nomination for Best Actress for her performance in Jonathan Demme’s critically acclaimed drama Rachel Getting Married. For her work in the film, Hathaway also earned Golden Globe, Independent Spirit Award and Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® nominations, and also won the National Board of Review, Chicago Film Critics Association, and Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Actress.

The Dark Knight’s Christian Bale: “It was very bittersweet when I took off the cowl for last time, because it’s meant so much to me personally to play this character”

It’s hard to accept that The Dark Knight Rises will likely be the last time we’ll see Christian Bale as Batman (though as Sean Connery would say, “Never say never”). On that note, Bale took the time to express his thoughts on the last chapter of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and the series as a whole, as well as speaking about his feelings about leaving the character behind after three films.

Christopher Nolan talks ‘The Dark Knight’ and Working with Bale, Hardy and Hathaway

At last, it’s here: the long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s The Dark Knight, generally considered the best comic book superhero movie ever made (and until this year’s The Avengers, the highest-grossing). The Dark Knight Rises is also director Christopher Nolan’s farewell to the Batman franchise, and the nearly three-hour film was perhaps the most challenging of his career.

Anne Hathaway on Playing Catwoman: “I saw it less as a challenge and more as an opportunity to go to a place I had never been required to go before”

Despite Christopher Nolan’s insistence to take a more realistic approach to his Batman films (well, as realistic as a man dressing as a bat to fight crime can be), it was inevitable that Batman’s main love interest, Selina Kyle/Catwoman, would show up at some point. She finally appears in The Dark Knight Rises, portrayed by Anne Hathaway.

Christopher Nolan: Anne Hathaway ‘Deserves’ a Catwoman Spinoff Movie

At first I wasn’t completely sold on Anne Hathaway being cast as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, but she certainly looks great in the catsuit and I’m looking forward to seeing what she brings to Christopher Nolan’s vision of Gotham City. In fact, Nolan admits that he was so impressed by Hathaway’s performance that he feels she ought to have her own Catwoman spinoff.
