Quite a few people seem to forget that adult Cosette, is the same Cosette that was beaten up by the Thenardiers. That she was very gracious and helped the poor. Her heart was open to everyone.
She wasn't self-centered at all. She always thought she was plain, and quite ugly. Most said she was pretty, but she did not belive them. For several months she didn't look in the mirror. Then, one day she really looked at herself, smiled and said, "I really am quite pretty, aren't I?". She didn't gloat, or show off her stuff. It was only a self-esteem boost.
Marius did not love Cosette because she was pretty, he loved her because of her personality. He thought she was a beautiful person inside, and out.
To those that think Cosette is a ditz because she talked about
Some people also hate Cosette because she just lays around and "gets the guy"
what is with that?? That only shows you are jealous of her. And that's just selfish Marius
loved her..GROW UP. Cosette wasn't expecting to fall in love. She was happy before she met
him. Just because she got the guy is no reason to hate someone. That is selfish,
disrespectful, and immature.
Cosette is a sweet, gentle, and loving girl. People say she would have never jumped in front of the gun for Marius. I can't disagree more. Cosette would have died for him, but she didn't know he was at the barricade. She was crushed when she found out he was injured.
I love Cosette, for her simple charm, and her innocents. She loved anything. She was a
beautiful person. I'm sure if all of you Cosette haters opened your eyes and really looked
into her soul you would see a girl with all the personality and charm
