Speaking to OnTheRedCarpet, Hathaway revealed that she was particularly impressed by Hugh Jackman's dedication to the film.

"I love this cast - I am so blown away by everyone, especially Hugh," she declared, adding: "I mean, because we all love Hugh."

The actress continued: "Hugh is just the greatest guy in the world - but it's so great to see not only his dramatic chops, but his musical chops fuse and give a performance that I don't think anyone else in the world could have given.

"I'm so - I mean, I know it sounds weird because I'm younger than him, but I am so proud of him and I am so happy for him."
