Anne Hathaway is a special guest at Nobel Peace Prize celebrations (yes, really!)

Anne Hathaway brought an unexpected touch of showbiz glitz to the Nobel Peace Prize celebrations in Oslo, Sweden.

Hathaway turned up to host today's Nobel Peace Prize Concert along with Oscar-winner Denzel Washington, who turns 55 at the end of the month.

The 28-years-old actress was also joined by Barry Manilow, Herbie Hancock and Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman.

Anne and Denzel hosted a news conference earlier today about the concert , which is meant to honour jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, winner of the 2010 Nobel prize.

The 54-year-old received an 11-year sentence last year for "inciting subversion" after drafting a charter calling for multi-party democracy and respect for human rights in China.

China did not allow Liu Xiaobo or his family to attend.

The concert includes performances by Indian singer Rahman, veteran singer Barry Manilow, musician Herbie Hancock, current pop sensation Robyn, plus American singers India.Aria and Colbie Caillat.

Anne made the trip to Europe following a few days in Sydney promoting Love and Other Drugs with co-star Jake Gyllenhaal.

This weekend's events will give the actress a chance to practice her on stage skills before February, when she'll join James Franco to host the Oscars.

The Nobel Peace Prize Concert is always hosted by majors stars.

Will Smith, Tom Cruise and Sir Michael Caine are among those who have hosted in the past.
