Actress cut her hair before proposal

Anne Hathaway decided she wanted her scenes in Les Misérables to be as realistic as possible, and that included when her impoverished character Fantine agrees to sell her long locks for cash.

She had a pixie crop for real – before discovering boyfriend Adam Shulman wanted to propose to her.

‘My now husband looked at me with pride, joy and slight panic,’ Anne tells The Sun.

‘I said “what’s the matter?” and he said, “OK, without giving anything away about what is coming in the next few months, how do you feel about being a short-haired bride,” and I went: “Noooooooooooooo”.’

Anne, 30,  eventually wed Adam in Big Sur, California, in September. She wore a white headpiece as well as a long flowing dress and veil.
