Anne Hathaway, who shaved her formerly long brunette locks into a choppy buzz cut for role in Les Miserables, feels that new hairstyle makes her look like her older brother, Michael.
The 29-year-old actress revealed at a screening for the movie in New York on Friday that she was initially terrified to look in the mirror after cutting her hair but was comforted to see a familiar face.
"When I eventually looked in the mirror, I just thought I looked like my gay brother,” UsMagazine quoted her as saying.
But it seems the actress now loves her pixie cut as she recently told the December issue of Vogue magazine that she plans to keep it.

"I love the short-haired lifestyle. I'm turning 30, and -- I hope this isn't obnoxious to say -- I feel prettier, and much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now,” she said.
