Anne Hathaway Is a Brunette Again

ADRIAN SANCHEZ-GONZALEZ/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Anne Hathaway has returned to her natural hair color: brunette.

Paparazzi snapped photos of Hathaway's new do on Tuesday while she grabbed coffee in New York City. According to Us Weekly, the Les Misérables actress dyed her hair on May 23 at the salon of Hollywood stylist Marie Robinson.

Hathaway had dyed her hair platinum blonde to attend the Met Ball in New York City earlier this month, a gala that benefits the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Hathaway reportedly returned to a brunette for her next movie role, Song One, in which she plays a woman who befriends her sick brother's favorite musician, according to Deadline.com.

Hathaway's pixie hairdo for Les Mis still generates lots of buzz. The hairstyle, which appropriately fit her as she portrayed the prostitute Fantine in her Oscar-winning performance, was even named the most influential film haircut of all time, according to the Hairdressing Council of Great Britain and Universal Pictures.

Anne Hathaway Was 'Obsessive' About Weight Loss for "Les Miserables"

Fred Duval/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Anne Hathaway had to endure a dramatic transformation -- chopping off her long brown locks and losing 20 pounds -- for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables, due in theaters next month.

In a revealing interview in the December issue of Vogue, the 29-year-old actress admits that she was extremely disciplined about weight loss -- at one point only eating two squares of oatmeal paste per day.

"I had to be obsessive about it.  The idea was to look near death," Hathaway said in Vogue.  "Looking back on the whole experience -- and I don't judge it in any way -- it was definitely a little nuts.  It was definitely a break with reality, but I think that’s who Fantine is anyway."

"I was in such a state of deprivation -- physical and emotional.  When I got home, I couldn't react to the chaos of the world without being overwhelmed," Hathaway admitted.  "It took me weeks 'til I felt like myself again."

The actress, who is already getting Oscar buzz for her role, said the other part of her transformation -- the hair loss -- was a breeze in comparison.

"I love the short-haired lifestyle," she said.  "It's awesome that I was able to go for a hike right before I came here to meet you, quickly wash my hair, and now it's dry."

Hugh Jackman: Risks Were Taken During Shooting of "Les Miserables"

Stephen Lovekin/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- After receiving an honorary Tony Award on Sunday, Hugh Jackman will make an appearance later this year in a movie based on a popular musical.

Jackman stars in the big-screen adaptation of Les Miserables, which opens Dec. 14.  He says the crew took some chances during the making of the film.

"We're doing something that's never been done before, everything's sung live, it makes it very exciting 'cause every day at work is like an opening night....[A]lso that means you have to be on your game for 10 hours, that's a lot of singing," the actor says.

Jackman is pleased with the positive feedback for the recently-released teaser trailer of the film, saying he senses a "general excitement."

Anne Hathaway Not on 500-Calorie-a-Day Diet for "Les Miserables"

Jim Spellman/WireImage(LONDON) -- Anne Hathaway isn't on a "miserables" diet while working on her next film.

Britain's Daily Mirror claims Hathaway is eating fewer than 500 calories per day because she was ordered by movie executives to lose 16 pounds in less than 20 days for certain scenes in Les Miserables. She plays the single mother and prostitute Fantine.

Hathaway's rep denies the report, telling E! News, "She is losing weight for the part, but not that much. Just enough for her to look more frail, as she is playing a dying prostitute. She is consuming more than 500 calories. [The tabloids] are making something of nothing, as usual."

Hathaway will be seen on the big screen this summer in The Dark Knight Rises. She plays Catwoman.
