Anne Hathaway made sure there were no more "devastating" wardrobe malfunctions yesterday as she stepped out in a very safe pair of tight jeans.

The Les Miserables star revealed a bit too much when she was papped getting out of a car at the premiere of the movie in New York on Monday night.

The American beauty may have made sure she was wearing her gladiator-style leg braces, but she forgot to put any pants on - and flashed the world her crotch area.

She said of the cringeworthy moment: "'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. It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.'

And she has since lashed out at the paps who sold the pictures. She told Today Show host Matt Lauer: “It was obviously an unfortunate incident.

“It kind of made me sad on two accounts. One was that I was very sad that we live in an age when someone takes a picture of another person in a vulnerable moment and rather than delete it, and do the decent thing, sells it.

“And I’m sorry that we live in a culture that commodifies sexuality of unwilling participants, which brings us back to 'Les Mis', that’s what my character is, she is someone who is forced to sell sex to benefit her child because she has nothing and there’s no social safety net.”

Nice bridge to plug there, Anne.

But the 30-year-old actress made sure there were no repeat performances as she flew back to LA with her husband Adam Shulman.

Anne dressed down for the plane ride in blue skinny jeans, Converse, a knitted jumper and grey wool coat.

But she was clearly still getting over her embarrassment from the previous night, as she hid behind a pair of huge dark glasses.

Despite hiding behind her specs, Anne had a huge grin on her face.

May be something to do with the fact she had just found out she had been nominated for Best Supporting Female Actress by the Screen Actors Guild.
