Anne Hathaway has revealed that she was "terrified" to cut her hair off for Les Miserables.

The Dark Knight Rises star, who portrays Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's third and final instalment of the Batman trilogy, had to go for the chop for her role as Fantine in Tom Hooper's forthcoming big-screen adaptation.

"It was terrifying. I didn't expect it because in this film [The Dark Knight Rises], I do backflips out of windows, I jump off of buildings, I do all sorts of scary things but nothing was as scary as cutting my hair off," she said.

Anne, 29, admitted that her emotions took her by surprise.

"I was really surprised by that. I don't know why - it was a big dramatic change that could have gone very, very badly," she explained.

"I didn't realise how much my identity was tied to hair. But it was good to take that up."

Anne stars alongside Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean and Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert in Les Miserables, which is scheduled for release in December.
