Anne Hathaway eating apples to lose weight for Les Mis

31 March 2012

She'll next be seen as feisty rogue Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's final Batman epic The Dark Knight Rises but it has been reported that gorgeous Hollywood leading lady Anne Hathaway has started a crash diet for her role in Les Misérables.

Talk about suffering for your art! The Mirror reports that The Devil Wears Prada hottie will allegedly eat just two apples a day in order to lose 16lb (1.14 st) in less than 20 days to shoot a tragic scene for the part and an insider said "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 – up to a stone and a half – because she's been filming the scenes showing her fit and healthy, almost slightly chubby.

It's not ideal but, as with any high-budget movie, there are strict time constraints."
So how will she do it? Well the source adds "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.

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."

We wish her well. In the meantime the first photo of Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean was posted by the actor on Twitter.

Directed by Tom Hooper, the musical drama Les Misérables comes to UK screens on January 11 next year and features the stellar line up of Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Helena Bonham Carter, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne.
