Back when Les Misérables was filming, there were reports that photographer Annie Leibovitz was on set. Only now, for the December issue of Vogue, are we finally seeing the fruits of her labor. A slideshow entitled Dreaming a Dream: The Cast of Les Misérables shows the film’s actors in character: Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Russell Crowe (Javert), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Amanda Seyfried (Cosette), Eddie Redmayne (Marius), and the Thenardiers (Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen).

On Jean Valjean: “He’s one of the great literary characters of all time; a real study of the human spirit under the worst adversity possible.”

On filming Les Mis: “The stakes were as high as they could possibly be every day. And that sort of cauldron of expectation and pressure and excitement was exhilarating.”

Anne Hathaway is on the cover of the December issue, and her feature article – Leap of Faith – goes pretty in-depth into the making of Les Mis. There are some quotes from Hugh, along with on set anecdotes — did you know Russell had sing-along parties at his apartment on Fridays? For those interested, there’s also a short video right here, which goes behind the scenes on Anne’s Vogue cover shoot, along with comments from her and Eddie on Les Mis. Check out the nice things Eddie had to say:

“One of the most extraordinary things – and complicated things – about this film was the meeting of the theater world and the film world. Hugh and Annie worked out how to combine those two worlds and were really role models, in some ways, on how to make this incredibly famous work have new life breathed into it.”
