Anne Hathaway On Her Horrible-Sounding Les Miserables Crash Diet

Anne Hathaway is in the business of crash diets. Last time around, she was eating little but kale to squeeze into her Catwoman catsuit for The Dark Knight Rises. Since then, she’s caught flak for a supposedly draconian (500 calories a day!) regimen, adopted to play a prostitute in Les Mis. Now, Hathaway gives Allure a little more detail:

“I’m doing some crazy weight stuff right now. I’m on day six of detox …this diet makes me break out, so I love that. Nothing like living on hummus and radishes and then being all like ‘And I got a pimple’ Yeah.”

Regarding that Dark Knight Rises diet, she previously claimed to have been living on “kale and dust” to fit into the costume. Now, she adds:

“[The catsuit is] a psychological terrorist… the suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit… it dominated my year. I went into the gym for ten months and didn’t come out.”

 Yikes. What’s worse? “Kale and dust” or raw vegetables, hummus and breakouts?

    Yikes, it kinda sounds like she has a problem

      I’d say it’s more accurate that Hollywood is who really has the problem.

      What Naomi said.

      But to be fair, heaps of actors and actresses do weird and grueling shit to prepare for their roles.

  • Maggie

    I always thought she was thin to begin with! Those diets are horrible, she’ll be lucky to not have any lasting effects from them.

      I agree. Around the time when Bride Wars came out, she became this thing that is almost nothing but GIANT EYES

  • MR

    I like her face. 500 calories a day? Not good.

  • Jen

    I think I’m glad I’m not an actress.
