Les Miserables has received plenty of praise from critics and fans alike. Joining the fan club are several celebs, including Eric Stonestreet and Kristen Bell. The latest star to give her stamp of approval? Glee Project mentor Lea Michele! And Lea definitely knows what she’s talking about, seeing as she played young Cosette back in 1995. What did the Les Mis alum have to say about the new film?
Everyone’s going crazy over the most recent remake of Les Miserables, and that includes some of our favorite reality stars! Glee Project star Lea Michele definitely tops the list of Les Mis fans — for in addition to loving any film with a libretto, Lea has a special connection to Les Miserables: she starred in it when she only eight years old!
We’re still wondering why Lea Michele wasn’t cast in the latest movie version of Les Miserables in the first place. As much as we love Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried, who could be better positioned for the film than the former Cosette? She certainly would have had the best vocal range for the role.
At any rate, Lea Michele didn’t seem particularly bitter about being left out of Les Mis when she tweeted about the movie the other day. “Just saw Les Mis.. is was amazing!! As a member of the Les Mis family I thought they did an amazing job and truly honored the show:)”
How did you like Les Mis? Do you wish Lea Michele had been awarded one of the main parts? Feel free to share your reaction in the comments section below!
