Anne Hathaway on crash diet for Les Miserables Movie

Anne Hathaway is currently involved in the filming of the Les Miserables movie starring Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe. 

She is playing the role of Fantine who is a single mother forced to turn to prostitution who eventually dies with consumption.  To make her look suitably “waif-like” for the role Miss Hathaway has been put on 500 calories a day crash diet to lose 16lbs or more in less than three weeks.

Hathaway is by no means overweight and currently a healthy size 10 but she only has 15 to 20 days to lose as much weight as possible. She has already filmed the opening scenes before her world falls apart and she still looks a normal weight.

A representative said: “It’s not ideal but, as with any high-budget movie, there are strict time constraints. Producers have assigned her a personal trainer and she is literally eating nothing more than a couple of apples a day, and some protein – mainly in the form of a shake. Anne knows the risk of such an extreme diet and will undergo weekly medicals to make sure everything is still functioning as it should do.”

Luckily Hathaway is no stranger to having to lose weight for roles as last year she had to slim down to fit into an unforgiving cat suit to play Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. She also lost weight to play Andrea Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada.
