Anne Hathaway's New Haircut

Anne Hathaway doesn't seem all that taken with her own cropped hair, probably because she had it cut for her role in the Les Miserables movie (she plays Fantine). All I can say is that Anne is a) a brave soul, and b) is probably pretty enough to pull it off. I hope.

The Victor Hugo novel was one of my favorite books as a preteen and I avoided the musical version with all my might. The casting of the movie weirds me out: I can live with Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, but Russel Crowe as Inspector Javert and Sasha Baron Cohen as Thenardier? I wish for a true-to-the-book and very French Les Miserables. Maybe some day.

What do you think of Anne Hathaway's hair? Are you looking forward to the movie?

  1. Hi Gaia,
    I think Anne is lovely and has the features perfect for a short cut. She has beautiful skin and large doe-shaped eyes, what's not to love?

  2. It looks like a good change, but I'd need to see another perspective to be sure. However, if she's not comfortable with it, it won't work, will it?

    The film doesn't sound too appealing to me, either. They're really trying too hard with that casting. But don't listen to me: I HATED the previews of the Black Swan and it was such a huge hit. ~~nozknoz

  3. I think I could see Russell Crowe as Javert, craggy face, cranky guy, dogged. Sasha Baron Cohen? eh. well. mm.

    I'd like to see Anne full one, without hiding her face. It may just work for her, just a different look for awhile.

  4. As I have short hair, I really don't see why she shouldn't like her cropped hair. :)
    The little I can see on the pic looks great.
    And like Elizabeth said, she has the perfect features for short hair.

  5. But she is not blonde, why cast her as Fantine? Fantine is supposed to have golden hair. Oh well, as long as they don't pull her front teeth out I suppose she's ok.

  6. Well...I'm biased. I've worn a pixie cut almost my entire life...and I'm old. I wish more women would cut off their long hair. I think Anne looks great. I want to see more pictures of her new hair cut. As for the movie....Sasha Baron Cohen killed it for me. Ugh.

  7. Having gone from long to short a couple of times, I can say it's a real shock to get it all lopped off. Not that you don't like a new crop, more that you spend a couple of days getting used to the physical change - no hair strands blowing in your face, feeling the breeze on the back of your neck, etc. Like Anne, I spent ages just touching my new short hair. It felt so cool!
    Anne will be beautiful with a crop - I expect there will be a lot of comparisons with Audrey Hepburn.

  8. I must admit I was completely taken aback when I read the casting list. I have the feeling this isn't going to be the same Les Misérables that I read eons ago in French lit. When I told my twenty-something son about it (he read it in high school), he said, "Sasha? Our boy Sasha? You've got to be kidding!". We shall see.

    As for the hair cut, Ann looks so terribly uncomfortable. The picture reminds me of a time when I was very little and I decided to cut bangs on my grandmother's sweet sheepdog, Rags. Poor Rags was utterly humiliated by her new do. Not to imply Ann in any way looks like a dog, but in that picture she does have a certain hang-dog look about her. But, she'll get used to it and, if she doesn't like it, it is hair and will grow.

  9. Anne is certainly lovely enough to carry off a short cut, but in that photo she looks like a plucked chicken. I'll have to reserve judgment until I see her full-face, without her hand in her hair. Sigh. I really loved her beautiful long locks.

  10. I doubt she's uncomfortable about her hair but being photographed while out. I love super short hair & think she can carry it off.
