What would you do for your work? Would you stop drinking liquids? Would you run for miles on an empty stomach? These were just some of the measures Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway were willing to go to for their roles in "Les Miserables."
During The Envelope Screening Series, the two actors compared their efforts to transform their physical appearances for their parts as struggling 19th century French citizens.
Jackman stopped drinking liquids for 36 hours to achieve his gaunt look as a slave in the opening scene of the film. But it came with a cost: extreme crankiness. "Even Russell [Crowe] was scared of me," he quipped.
While Hathaway lost a great deal of weight in a very short amount of time. "I thought she was a part that deserved everything," she said.
