Anne Hathaway on paparazzi: 'I gave them the finger' at my wedding

Anne Hathaway demonstrates her wedding day gesture for paparazzi.

When "Les Miserables" star Anne Hathaway planned her wedding, she was sure she'd thought of everything. She even had a plan to keep pesky paparazzi from snapping sneaky shots from overhead. But as it turned out, the balloon installation that was meant to ensure a no-fly zone over the big event just drew the attention of the airborne shutterbugs.

On Monday night's "Late Show With David Letterman," Hathaway revealed how she reacted when her loved ones noticed the unwelcome visitors.

"My family goes, 'Well, what do you want us to do?'" she recalled of the Sept. event. "And without thinking, I go, 'Give 'em the finger!'"

Hathaway even took her own advice.

"I gave them the finger for about a second," she said. "My husband (actor Adam Shulman) turned to me and said, 'You really don't want to do that.' And I said, 'You know what? It feels good in the moment, but you're right. In the future, I will regret it.'"

Letterman, on the other hand, couldn't imagine anything regrettable about middle-finger-filled wedding photos. That's when the actress demonstrated just what those shots might have looked like.
