Anne Hathaway on 500 Calorie-Per-Day Diet for 'Les Mis'

UPDATE: After hearing about The Daily Mail story, Hathaway’s rep told E! News that it’s a “huge exaggeration,” and that Hathaway “is losing weight for the part, but not that much. Just enough for her to look more frail, as she is playing a dying prostitute. She is consuming more than 500 calories. [The tabloids] are making something of nothing, as usual.”

Good to know.

Thanks to her healthy diet and exercise regimen, vegetarian actress Anne Hathaway has always appeared slim and fit onscreen, but her latest role is calling for a new look all together.

Hathaway is currently shooting the part of Fantine in the big screen adaptation of “Les Miserables.” And in order to realistically appear as a consumptive prostitute, the film’s producers have asked her to slim down even more — and to do it fast.

The Daily Mirror reports that Hathaway is on a 500 calorie-per-day diet so that she can drop the extra weight — “a stone-and-a-half,” or about 20 pounds — within her allotted two-to-three week window.

According to the site, “Anne is playing a destitute factory worker-come-lady of the night. Unfortunately, she only has 15 to 20 days to lose as much weight as possible…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.”

The Daily Mirror does note that Hathaway is working with a doctor to make sure she remains healthy on her crash diet.

And the actress is no stranger to sacrificing food for roles. Last year, when she was filming her role as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises,” she joked that she was living on “kale and dust” to fit into her costume.

    I lost 25 pounds by also eating less then 1000 calories a day. It’s amazing how fast the weight comes off when you fill your meals with vegetables, fruits and diet sodas. Ounce you get going it’s hard to eat a huge meal anyway. I didn’t think I could do it, but just don’t buy the groceries you don’t need to eat and it easy.

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
