Anne Hathaway on 500 Calorie Diet
Normally I love hearing about ridiculous celebrity diets – because I’m sure that if I ate nothing but spinach and seeds, I’d be super thin too! But according to Celebuzz, Anne Hathaway is on a diet that sounds more crazy than usual. She’s only eating 500 calories a day, and wants to lose 16 pounds in three weeks!
So why the starvation? A movie role, of course. Anne will appear in the upcoming remake of Les Miserable (cause we really need ANOTHER version of that) as Fantine, a dying prostitute. Apparently, she’s been assigned a personal trainer and a diet of “nothing more than a couple of apples a day, and some protein – mainly in the form of a shake.” Ouch! Interestingly, none of the Hunger Games cast members lost much weight to look “hungry” in the hit movie (perhaps because a good half of the movie is spent after they’ve fattened up and trained for the games). Is it more important for something like Les Mis?
Luckily, Anne’s not the only one who had to lose some weight for Les Mis; the usually buff Hugh Jackman, who is playing Jean Valjean, reportedly got so lean that he was unrecognizable on set.
