Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway told Vogue magazine (December issue) that she could never measure up to Broadway stars Patti LuPone and Lea Salonga who previously played Fantine on stage.

In the movie version of the musical “Les Miserables,” Hathaway was cast as Fantine, a role that her mom Kate McCauley-Hathaway once portrayed, too. “Patti, Lea… my mom [are] powerful singers with big, beautiful voices.”


On Twitter, Lea thanked Hathaway “for mentioning my name… in the same breath as Patti. Here’s hoping our pat


cross someday.”

In a previous interview, Salonga told Inquirer: “First time I saw the trailer and heard Anne’s voice, I cried. I know where I’ll be on Christmas day—watching ‘Les Miz’ in the United States.” Bayani San Diego Jr.
