PARIS -- A bevy of starlets showed up for Miuccia Prada's spring-summer 2013 Miu Miu fashion show on Wednesday, the last day of Paris Fashion Week. Emma Stone, Amanda Seyfried, Berenice Bejo and current Miu Miu campaign model Chloe Sevigny sat along the sculptural wood runway at Paris' Environmental Council building for one of the last shows of the season.

Hugh Jackman stalked Tom Hooper; Eddie Redmayne sent in an audition on his iPhone. In fact, according to the British actor, all of Hollywood "leapt out of the musical theater closet" to try to land a part in Hooper's adaptation of "Les Miserables. " Such was the discussion at The Envelope Screening Series for Universal Pictures' musical "Les Miserables. " The discussion also included actresses Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried. Jackman admitted that once the stalking ended and he landed the part, he did have a brief moment of, "Oh, wow, now I've got to do it. " But for Hooper, spending three hours with Jackman auditioning gave the director the confidence to eliminate most of the script's dialogue in exchange for a sung-through musical.

Despite its epic title, writer-director-actor Mark Webber's sophomore filmmaking effort "The End of Love" (his first was 2008's "Explicit Ills") is an exceptionally intimate, human-scaled picture. It's also quite a special piece of work. Webber, known largely for his many indie film appearances ("For a Good Time, Call…," "The Hottest State"), stars in this poignant, semi-autobiographical tale of a recently widowed, underemployed actor, also named Mark, devoted to raising his energetic 2-year-old, Isaac (Webber's real-life son, Isaac Love)

Well, Anne Hathaway, that's one way to drum up interest in the French Revolution. Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables" saw its New York City premiere on Monday ahead of the musical's Christmas Day release, and star Hathaway forgot a rather important decoration: her underwear. In a black Tom Ford creation with a constructed back and dramatic slit, Annie had herself a wardrobe malfunction while climbing out of her car at the Ziegfeld Theatre: She revealed to photographers that she wasn't wearing any underwear.

"Les Miserables" director Tom Hooper never wavered in his bold decision to have all his actors sing live during shooting. (Most movie musicals have the actors lip-syncing to pre-recorded tracks.) Rather, Hooper was encouraged by the dedication each of his actors gave to their parts -- and their songs. During the Envelope Screening Series featuring the cast and director of "Les Mis," Hooper explained the lengths his actors went to for the roles. Anne Hathaway, who plays Fantine in the musical, trained for six months before they started shooting, mastering the task of hitting the notes while keeping her face relaxed.
