Anne Hathaway arrived in a limo at the New York premiere of “Les Miserables” and had what she called a “devastating” wardrobe malfunction moment by a faulty dress with pictures that went viral on the Web.
Hathaway was wearing a tight black dress with a slit in it, and as her limo pulled up to the premiere and the door opened photographers started snapping pictures and the actress, who was not wearing underwear, did not realize how the slit in the dress had moved over her private parts to expose her under carriage.
“I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn’t realize it until I saw all the photographers’ flashes,” she told Vanity Fair writer Ingrid Sischy, reports the Daily News. “It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.”
The pic now dubbed “The Full Hathaway” unsurprisingly has been circulated around the web and new sources, much to the disappointment of Hathaway.
On the TODAY show, Wednesday morning, Hathaway told Matt Lauer, “It was obviously an unfortunate incident [and] it kind of made me sad that we live in an age when someone takes a pic of you in a vulnerable moment and sells it rather than deletes it.
“I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies unwilling participants,” she added.
She then compared the real-life situation to that of her character Les Mis in the Les Miserables movie. “It makes me think about the character I play in Les Mis, actually, she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child, so let’s get back to Les Mis,” she said as she tried to steer the conversation back to the movie from the wardrobe malfunction.
