ANNE HATHAWAY admits that she was a witch to her husband, ADAM SHULMAN, during the filming of her latest movie, “Les Miserables.”
You may remember that as the lead character of “Les Miserables,” Anne Hathaway had to go through several physical transformations—such as getting a familiar boy cut (which she admits to crying over) and going on an extreme diet to look like her deathly ill character, Fantine.
But as it turns out, there was an emotional transformation as well and it wasn’t easy on her relationship with her then-boyfriend, Adam Shulman.
The actress revealed to Chelsea Handler on “Chelsea Lately”:
“I was a witch. I mean, I was dealing with a lot of darkness and I was starving. So I just wasn’t that much fun to be around.”
“There was one day when, I kid you not, I picked a fight with [Adam] because he wouldn’t watch a sunset with me. I was like, ‘Honey, it’s the most incredible sunset you’ve ever seen, we have to go outside right now and see it.’ And he was like, ‘Honey, I’m on a business call. So just [give me] five minutes.’ And I was like, ‘Fine. That’s great for you.’ And I sat there, and I didn’t even make it the whole five minutes. I just got up.”
Hathaway then added that although it was “a miracle” that they survived the London filming of the movie, she had to send Shulman back to America so as not to ruin their relationship with her “manic” mood swings and to really focus on her role.
“I realized I was being really unfair to him and that even though I was in a negative place, I couldn’t let it affect our relationship. And also, I needed to go further into that negative place to play my character, and I love him so much that I was like, ‘You’re making me happy. You’re keeping me up and I’m clawing to the sides of my life and I need to fall into a pit and you need to go, honey.’”
Fortunately, they stood the test of time and emotional distress. They later got married in a private ceremony in California on September 29.
