Anne Hathaway is hardly the first celebrity to have a wardrobe malfunction, nor will she be the last, but the Les Miserables star is said to be humiliated over her red carpet incident at the film’s premiere this week.
At the film’s New York City premiere on Monday night, Hathaway showed more than she had bargained for when getting out of the car to get on to the red carpet.
According to The NY Daily News, Hathaway was at the Four Seasons on Tuesday, where she was overheard saying she was “devastated” about it.
“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 explained to Vanity Fair’s Ingrid Sischy.
She added, “It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.”
A rep for the actress hasn’t responded when asked to comment, but she did appear on the Today Show on Wednesday, where she talked about it with Matt Lauer.
ETOnline reports that she said "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."
She added, "I'm sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies unwilling participants," and quickly changed gears by saying "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."
