Putting her flawless skin on display, the 30-year-old actress looked stunning in an emerald green dress for the Annie Leibovitz shot front page while opening up about everything from designing her wedding dress to making dramatic physical changes the role of Fantine.

Highlights from Miss Hathaway's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vogue!

On losing 25 pounds for "Les Misérables:"
"I had to be obsessive about it--the idea was to look near death. Looking back on the whole experience--and I don't judge it in any way---it was definitely a little nuts. It was definitely a break with reality, but I think that’s who Fantine is anyway."

On her dramatic pixie haircut:
"I love the short-haired lifestyle. It's awesome that I was able to go for a hike right before I came here to meet you, quickly wash my hair, and now it's dry."

On designing her wedding dress with pal Valentino:
"I begged him during the first fitting to make the train detachable. He looked at me and said, 'But it is a dress, not a costume.' The memory of creating it with him is something that I will treasure forever. He somehow read my mind and designed the dress that I'd always wanted."
