Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables is scheduled for Christmas release. This year. This Christmas! And it’s a musical, just in case you were wondering if it won’t be too sad for Christmas. Although singing Victor Hugo’s dramatic novel doesn’t make it any happier.
It was only logical that Vogue US December 2012’ cover story would go to someone from the Miz story. And Amanda Seyfried already had two (- covers, that is – and we’ll get back to that) and I’m certain Anna Wintour had a hard time choosing between Helena Bonham – Carter (also starring in the said movie) and Anne Hathaway. Who also wedded in a semi – secret ceremony little while ago. Yes. Very hard to choose.
Now: about the cover itself: it’s Annie Leibovitz. Classic. Epic. Green. Sad. And to those who might find suitable to complain about the utter sadness of the cover picture – it’s about Les Miserables. What would you expect? The inside pictorial, however, is shinier, happier. Hit the jump and you’ll see for yourself!
And if we take the time to remember how Anne Hathaway first talked about cutting her hair and feeling depressed and really desperate about it, kind of makes sense to finally see her talking about the movie role that cut her hair in the first place. The romantically sad cover is suitable. The inside pictorial is fairy tale – appropriate. Much like Anne’s life story. In the end, it’s all very Vogue. Isn’t it?
Egads. This film has not come out yet and I am already beyond tired of it. I must be honest though I really do not care for modern musicals, I find them to be rather twee.
The last musical film that I really enjoyed was Moulin Rouge because it was very original.
I like Anne Hathaway but I mos def will not be seeing this.
As for US Vogue it seems it is now just a celebrity promotional device for latest “buzz’ project, no longer really about fashion. One would think that this article should be in Vanity Fair.
Elington dearest, you made it so for me to reply. I second your comment from all the way :)
*I second your comment all the way* or “from start to finish* ;)
But now I like to add that this happens too often since quite some time. I am so fed up with that.
