Anne Hathaway's Les Miserables performance was critically acclaimed. The role even won Hathaway the 2013 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Now, the brunette beauty was rumored to be taking her musical talent to another platform - the stage. The Daily Mail reported that the actress is set to play Sally Bowles in Cabaret alongside Alan Cumming.

Alan Cumming and the Roundabout Theater Company reviving Cabaret at Studio 54 in the winter. Cumming won a Tony Award in 1998 for his role in the production. Currently, Cumming is starring on Broadway in Macbeth as the title role, Lady Macbeth, Duncan, Banquo and others, and will return to The Good Wife as Eli Gold in mid-July.
"I'm going to ride this [Les Miserables] wave as long as I can," Anne Hatlaway said backstage at the Oscars. "But I always feel as an actor, gotta work gotta work gotta work." Her tendency to always be working is why Anne Hathaway was rumored to be doing another musical so shortly after wrapping up the big-budget French revolution film.
However, that rumor was quickly shot down by Anne Hathaway's publicist. The Princess Diaries actress' representative told the Daily News that the Daily Mail report "is not true" and that he "had no idea" what prompted the story.
What a shame. Anne Hathaway would have been perfect for the role of Sally Bowles in the 1966 musical. The main character in the show, Sally is a 19-year-old cabaret performer who has tumultuous relationship with an American writer by the name of Cliff Bradshaw. The role was originally made famous by none other than Liza Minnelli - huge (tap) shoes to fill!
Anne Hathaway's potential character's development reaches a climax in Cabaret when Sally gets an abortion. She recovers in a nursing home. "Though [British novelist Christopher] Isherwood was 'fascinated' by the abortion story," wrote Linda Mizejewski in Camp: Queer Aesthetics and the Performing Subject. "[Poet and Editor] Lehmann was 'nervous whether our printers - in the climate of those days - would pass it.' Abortions in that day and age could carry a life sentence in jail.
Is Anne Hathaway expecting a child of her own soon? Coming off the heels of her Academy Award win and her marriage to Adam Shulman in November, rumors swirl that the Les Miserables stunner might be having a baby herself.
"Rumors are that Anne Hathaway may be pregnant," said Giuliana Rancic, spilling the rumor beans while hosting E!'s "Countdown to the Red Carpet. According to OMG! from Yahoo!, she continues, "That's the buzz on the street right now, which, if true that may be the ultimate award season good luck charm."
"Just ask Natalie Portman who two years swept the award season for her work in Black Swan while she was pregnant with her first child," Rancic said. "Also Rachel Weisz had a bump while picking up hardware for The Constant Gardener in 2006 and Catherine Zeta Jones in 2003, who was just about ready to pop."
But no, Anne Hathaway is not pregnant. "She's not pregnant," her rep told Rumorfix. She may have future plans, but "that doesn't mean she is adopting immediately or looking to get pregnant right away." Although she doesn't have a bun in the oven now, the 30-year-old actress does want to have babies eventually:
"I've wanted to be a mom since I was 16," Anne Hathaway said. "I'm 30 and I want to have a family of a certain size. Look, I'll start with one healthy kid but I'd like to have a few naturally and adopt. I gotta get on it, you know? I'd like to have as many as I can afford, not just financially but in terms of time, because you want to make sure each one feels special. I've had one goal in mind for the past 12 years, which is: get a movie, get a movie, get a movie. Now I might have to say: get a baby, get a baby, get a baby."
