Want to know just how strict Anne Hathaway is with her vegan lifestyle? It was the very first thing she brought up on the set of “Les Miserables.”

“When she came onto the movie for the first time, she said – and obviously being a vegan for her is a very important thing – that she didn’t want to wear anything made with animal products,” costume director Paco Delgado told Yahoo! lifestyle.

Delgado says that the request was not particularly difficult to fulfill – the design team simply found the right people to source the right materials.

“We had to find very specific shoemakers to create lace-up boots and ankle boots,” he said in an earlier interview. “We also did flats that were much more sophisticated.”

Overall, Delgado and his team made five different outfits for Hathaway – most made of linen and cotton. The actress, however, could not escape dead animal entirely while on set.

Said Anne back in December: “For some reason, for the dock scenes, (Director Hooper) wanted us to have dead fish, for days, and days and days on end and of course this was the first role that I’ve done since going vegan, so there I am in period-looking pleather shoes, stepping on dead fish, and I was having a real crisis of conscience.”
