The 30-year-old actress showed off more skin than she planned at the New York premiere of Les Miserables on Monday.
Photographers caught Anne Hathaway exiting her limousine when she accidentally gave photographers a view of her nether regions.
According to the Daily News, the actress told Vanity Fair's Ingrid Sischy:
"I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn't realize it until I saw all the photographers' flashes."
She added: "It was devastating. They saw everything.
"I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them."
Yet Hathaway was soon reportedly laughing off the incident.
According to the New York Post, the actress was overheard telling guests at a luncheon for Les Miserables at the Four Seasons:
"I found out [about the pictures] just as I came in. And I just thought, ‘OK, where’s the comedy?’'"
She continued: "It has hit. It has landed. A bomb has gone off.
"I think what I am going to do is whatever my next appearance is...
"I’m going to step out of the car in a blanket. You’ve got to laugh at it."
