Anne Hathaway is taking her new acting role seriously, going so far as to slim down to play the part.
Anne Hathaway is an actress who is willing to do whatever it takes to immerse herself in a role.
The Catwoman actress is reportedly on a diet to slim down for her newest acting gig. The beautiful brunette will be playing Fantine in the Les Miserables movie adaptation.
“Anne is playing a destitute factory worker-come-lady of the night,” says a source to the Daily Mail. “Unfortunately, she only has 15 to 20 days to lose as much weight as possible — up to a stone-and-a-half — because she’s been filming the scenes showing her fit and healthy, almost slightly chubby.”
Slightly chubby… Anne Hathaway? We think not!
Now, we know that actors and actresses have gained weight specially for movie roles, and according to the source, Anne has no problem staying true to her character’s appearance and has decided to adopt an exercise regime and a new diet of 500 calories a day — down from the recommended 2,000 calories.
“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,” says the source. “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.”
This isn’t the first role that Anne has had to slim down for. In the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada, the actress had to shed a few pounds to play journalist hopeful Andrea Sachs.
Well, as long as she stays healthy and is comfortable with her body, then that’s all that matters, right?
