Japan's crown prince attends "Les Miserables" premiere

"Les Miserables" had a royal premiere in Tokyo this week, where its Australian star Hugh Jackman walked the red carpet at the charity gala.

In the audience at the Tuesday night screening was Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito, who sat next to Jackman as the movie unfolded. The film, set to open Christmas Day in the U.S., also stars Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried.

Director Tom Hooper's musical adaptation of the classic Victor Hugo tale has been generating a lot of buzz since it had a world premiere in London on Dec. 5.
