It seems like all of Anne Hathaway’s recent roles involve some extreme diet plan. For Catwoman, she joked that she lived on “kale and dust.” For Les Mis, rumor was that she was living on 500 calories per day, although her publicist put out a statement that it was an exaggeration. Hathaway said on her Les Mis diet, “Nothing like living on hummus and radishes.”

But now, the actress is concerned that her dramatic weight loss and jokes about diet are inspiring unhealthy patterns in others. She said when asked about how she dropped the weight, “I don’t answer that question. Not to like get super serious about it, but just there’s so many people out there that will try something unhealthy to lose weight… I don’t want to contribute to that.”

Perhaps there are people out there who actually tried the kale and dust diet. Or, the slightly more healthful radish and hummus diet. Do people really not know better?

We like Hathaway’s plain ol’ vegan eats once she’s done the movie role. Contact Music reports that when she broke her fast she said about her eating, “I had spelt pasta with garlic oil and like a lot of beautiful fresh tomatoes and then I had a twice baked potatoes, with basil sun dried tomatoes [and] oil. It was so good.”

If people want a meal plan from Hathaway, that last one is the best bet.
