2. We’ve all heard of stars making lavish requests that drive producers crazy, like requiring the removal of all blue M&M’s from craft services. While Hathaway’s unique needs may have been difficult to procure, there seems to have been some fairly sound reasoning afoot.

You can get a sense of what a great job Delgado did in the trailer above, right down to Fantine’s authentic, yet cruelty free, shoes.
