Anne Hathaway addressed her nude wardrobe malfunction at Monday's New York City premiere of "Les Miserables" and said that the incident, though it was "devastating," is something she will laugh off.
After the actress found out she unintentionally flashed photographers on the red carpet and then the revealing photos went viral, she said she tried to find comedy in the whole matter, according to the New York Post.
"I found out [about the pictures] just as I came in," she said to guests at a Four Seasons restaurant luncheon for the film on Tuesday. "And I just thought, 'OK, where's the comedy?' "
She then added, "I think what I am going to do is whatever my next appearance is . . . I'm going to step out of the car in a blanket. You've got to laugh at it."
During her guest appearance on "The Today Show" Wednesday, anchor Matt Lauer addressed Monday's mishap and asked the 30-year-old what she learned from the whole ordeal. Hathaway first responded by saying it was "obviously an unfortunate event" and then continued to explain how upset she was that the "vulnerable" images were sold and publicized rather than deleted, which she called the "decent thing" to do.
"And I'm sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants," she added. "Which brings us back to 'Les Mis,' because that's what the character [Fantine] 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 so yeah."
"Les Miserables," comes out in theaters on Dec. 25. Hathaway plays in the film the role of Fantine, a dying prostitute and mother stricken with tuberculosis. The film also stars Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen and a slew of other acclaimed actors.
