Anne Hathaway says Les Miserables makes her cry because she still has a very strong connection to her character Fantine.

Hathaway is part of an all star cast that has brought the popular musical to life as she joins forces with Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe.

The actress went through a physical transformation to play the role and her performance is already being raved about.

Speaking to MTV News the actress said: "I cry, but I think it's because I'm still connected to the experience of making it, the process.

"For me, when I see it, I actually have to be aware when I'm doing press, because it brings me a lot closer to Fantine. She's so broken that I actually have to protect myself a little bit.

"So when I saw it, I did cry, but not because of what I was doing [on screen]. It was because I was back in the process of making it. The rest of the film made me bawl like a baby."

Hathaway has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe and she is an early favourite to scoop the Oscar as well.

The role of Fantine couldn't be more different to the last time we saw her on the big screen as she played Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises.

Les Miserables is released 11th January.
