The brand new movie adaptation of the classic musical Les Misérables features an all-star cast - including Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen and Hugh Jackman - but what's on the soundtrack album? Find out with our track-by-track guide.
It’s not often an actor openly criticizes a past performance, but Amanda Seyfried made it clear on a recent episode of Variety’s “Actors on Actors” series that she regrets her performance in Tom Hooper’s 2012 “Les Misérables” musical adaptation. Seyfried starred in the film as Cosette, the illegitimate daughter of Fantine (played by Anne Hathaway in an Oscar-winning performance). According to Seyfried, her voice was not strong enough to successfully pull off the role. Hooper did not rely on backtracks for the music performances and instead had his cast sing live on set, which terrified Seyfried.
