Oh, that's right ... Anne Hathaway is actually funny!

The recently married "Les Miserables" beauty is taking a break from her recent angst-ridden roles and returning to romantic comedy territory with "The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Lizzie Gillespie" centers on a woman whose low opinion of herself has made her love life consist of dating mostly losers. When she is about to hit the bottom of the barrel, she gets thrown for a loop when she is pursued by the hottest guy ever.

Apparently the film is going to call for a healthy suspension of disbelief as we're expected to accept Anne Hathaway as a woman who can't attract a decent guy. You know, kind of like how Sharon Stone couldn't get a date in "Sliver."

"Lizzy Gillespie" was co-written by Mindy Kaling, who is expected to take on a supporting role as well (and who will soon be heard as the voice of Taffyta Muttonfudge in "Wreck-It Ralph").

"The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie" marks Anne Hathaway's first romantic comedy since 2010's "Love and Other Drugs" after recently taking on darker kinds of roles in "One Day" and "The Dark Knight Rises." She'll next be seen looking completely, well, miserable as Fantine in "Les Miserables," opening Dec. 25, and is allegedly being courted for a role in Steven Spielberg's "Robopocalypse."
