Actress Anne Hathaway says she broke into tears after watching herself on big screen in Les Miserables.

In the film, Hathaway plays the role of Fantine, an ill-fated prostitute dying of tuberculosis. And she admits she was in tears when she saw herself in the epic musical drama, reports usmagazine.com.

"I cry, but I think it's because I'm still connected to the experience of making it, the process. For me, when I see it, I actually have to be aware when I'm doing press, because it brings me a lot closer to Fantine," she told MTV News.

"She's so broken that I actually have to protect myself a little bit. So when I saw it, I did cry, but not because of what I was doing (on screen). It was because I was back in the process of making it," she added.
