EXCLUSIVE! Despite nods at the Oscars, BAFTAS and Golden Globes, Amanda Seyfried tells Marie Claire she’s still worried about the reaction to Les Miserables
Les Miserables is one of the most hotly anticipated films of the year, with eight Oscar nominations including a nod for Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman. Despite being named at every award ceremony this season, Amanda Seyfried, who plays Cosette, is still concerned audiences won’t like it.
Speaking to Marie Claire online Amanda said: ‘I’m nervous, I’m worried about those few people who are maybe not going to accept it.’
Although she’s certainly not one of them as she added: ‘I think [Les Miserables] is amazing and I’m a pretty hard critic. We really brought the magic of the stage to the screen and coloured it in even more.
‘It’s more epic and more intense than watching the stage show and what matters at the end of the day is how it affects you.’
Someone it has had a profound affect on is Anne Hathaway whose portrayal of Fantine has earned her nominations at the Golden Globes, Oscars and BAFTAs. Such success, Amanda attributes to a tight knit cast.
She told us: ‘It was so easy to relate to each other because we were all jumping out of an aeroplane together. It’s never been quite done like this way we were all terrified to be singing live.’
It looks like they needn’t have been though – Les Miserables is set to dominate things this award season.
What do you think, do you sympathize with Amanda Seyfried? Is there a lot of pressure to starring in Les Miserables? Let us know below.
