HOLLYWOOD A-LISTER FORGOT SOMETHING …

Hollywood hottie Anne Hathaway – riding high from her role in the summer blockbuster (and Christmas Blu-Ray sensation) The Dark Knight Rises – has been busy lately premiering her Christmas blockbuster.

It’s called Les … Lez … Les … hang on …

(calling Mrs. Sic Willie …)

Les Misérables … that’s right.

Obviously we’re kidding.  We know exactly what Les Misérables is.  We can even pronounce it all snootily (a.k.a. correctly).  In fact the book is currently sandwiched between Charles Dickens’ Martin Chuzzlewit and Aldous Huxley’s Island in our founding editor’s totally randomized, non-alphabetized library (rivaled only by his totally randomized, un-alphabetized baseball card collection).  The famous Victor Hugo novel – adapted into one of the most famous Broadway musicals of all-time – hits the big screen in America on Christmas Eve.

Here’s the trailer …

Oh … and here’s Hathaway showing up at a recent premiere for the movie wearing absolutely zero in the way of underwear.

Niiiice …

Not only did she flash us her landing strip, Hathaway was clever enough to turn the resulting scandal into a social parallel tied t

“It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it. And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which brings us back to ‘Les Mis,’ that’s what my character is, she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there’s no social safety net.”

Wow …

So what’s hotter?  Hathaway’s “area” or her ability to turn that “area” into a commentary on the exploitation of women that spans nearly two centuries?

Hmmmm …
