With her critically-beloved performance in Les Miserables, Anne Hathaway hopes to soon be compared with stars such as Meryl Streep.

Unfortunately for the actress, however, one mistake made this week has put her in the same class as Britney Spears instead.

Hathaway was caught with her pants down yesterday… or her skirt up, to be more accurate, as the actress was snapped exiting a car, sans a shred of underwear.

The New York Daily News has published the racy Hathaway photos in question, and also overheard the newlywed making it clear this was a regretful error.


“I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn’t realize it until I saw all the photographers’ flashes,” Hathaway told Vanity Fair writer Ingrid Sischy during lunch yesterday at the Four Seasons, adding:

“It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.”

To paraphrase Hathaway’s famous character in Les Miserables, that would definitely be a dream many a man around the world has dreamed in times gone by.
