Anne Hathaway has been given a dramatic make over for her latest film role as she has been spotted out with a cropped hair style.

The star is currently filming the character of Fantine for the big screen version of Les Miserables and the part sees her character having her hair cut short so she can sell it.

While the actress could have worn a wig, she has instead had it cut into a very short crop.

But her dramatic new look did not stop her from having a night on the town, as the Sun snapped her leaving a nightclub.

Hathaway seemed to be trying out a minimalist look to go with her new shorter hair, as she accessorised her outfit with just one thin gold ring on her right hand.

She was also sporting a thick winter coat and a handbag with a chain strap.

The film has required Hathaway to make several changes to her appearance, as she has also lost weight to play her character.
