Anne Hathaway Diet

Anne has been ordered to go on a shocking 500 calories a day crash diet — a quarter of the recommended daily allowance — to shed the pounds for her upcoming role as a dying prostitute in ‘Les Miserables.’ Is it really necessary?

Hollywood darling Anne Hathaway is under pressure from producers on the big-screen adaptation of Les Miserables to lose 16 pounds in less than three weeks, a source tells The Daily Mirror. With production on the big-budget film well underway, Anne is reportedly looking too “fit and healthy” to play the hungry and destitute Fantine. In order to reach her goal weight quickly, the actress has resorted to desperate measures.

“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 source says.

“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,” the insider adds.

We understand suffering for your art, but it sounds like she’s taking it a little far. We hope you’ll put your health first, Anne!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers?
