She may look like a new Anne Hathaway, but she has her same old sense of humor.
At a screening of Les Miserables in New York City Friday, the actress joked about her extraordinarily short hair (which she dons in order to portray Fantine in Tom Hopper's musical drama, out on Christmas Day), telling those in attendance:
"When I eventually looked in the mirror, I just thought I looked like my gay brother."
For the role of this disease-stricken character, Hathaway adjusted her look far beyond the top of her head.
She lost 25 pounds overall, the final 15 in just two weeks by eating nothing but a pair of thin squares of dried oatmeal paste per day.
It's a safe bet that the beauty knows an easy salmon recipe or other quick, simple meals that help one stay fit.
But don't try any of this extreme weight loss at home, readers. Hathaway tells the December issue of Vogue that the whole experience was "a little nuts."
