Know The Real Reason Anne Hathaway Was Nervous About Singing Live?

 "I tried to remove fear and anxiety from the process as much as possible."

 She plays the tragic heroine Fantine in the film "Les Miserables." Off the set they were singing "Weep no more, my lady."

Director Tom Hooper had the cast record their vocals live on camera instead of lip-synching to a recording.

"I was aware that if I had to cry take after take, it would affect my sinuses, which are integral to singing," confessed Hathaway. So the 30 year-old "practiced singing while crying a few months before we started filing just to get used to it."

No wipes needed as she tore into her role.
