"It's so encouraging because there are so many people out there who feel, and know in their hearts, that they are actors, and it doesn't work out for so many of them," Anne Hathaway said. "It just makes me feel really lucky that I get access to these kind of roles and these kind of experiences. It makes me wonder who I send a check to. I've loved the show since I was 8," Hathaway said of "Les Miserables." "I saw my mom perform this role when I was 8 years old. It just seemed like an amazing challenge to tell a story and represent the destruction and redemption of a soul in 15 minutes of screen time."
