ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The movie, "Les Miserables" comes out on Christmas day.  If you're a fan of the book, or the stage musical, you know that it is set during the French revolution. During the 19th century in France things were not very clean or hygenic for these folks. So that meant the actors had to get de-glammed and dirty-fied.  I asked Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and newcomer, Samantha Barks about their, less than tidy appearance.
