Hathaway's 'fun' on Song One set

Anne Hathaway has joked that she couldn't stay away from music after her Oscar-winning turn in Les Miserables.

The actress, who won an Oscar for her performance as Fantine in Tom Hooper's musical remake, revealed that it was "fun" to have a guitar to hand as she filmed drama Song One, which also stars English musician Johnny Flynn.

"This was the first film I made after Les Mis, and that was an experience that was so defined by music. I was really happy to go to another set, where music was a part of the give and take every day," she said at the film's premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.

"It was one of the things that connected us and one of the things that defined the experience. Plus it was just fun. It's fun to have a guitar there."

Anne plays an archaeologist, who strikes up a friendship with her injured brother's favourite musician, in Kate Barker-Froyland's film. The actress and her husband Adam Shulman also helped to produce the movie.

"I felt very hypnotised by it when I first read it. But I just loved spending time with the characters - they're genuinely good people with issues that I thought felt really real," she explained.

"For me, the movie is about what happens when you're on the wrong side of the emotional equation and suddenly, you get a searing insight into how wrong you are... and this is about my character's journey to correct that mistake."
