Anne Hathaway Weight Loss

Anne wasted away on a 500 calories a day diet and killer exercise regimen to play dying prostitute Fantine in the film adaptation of ‘Les Miserables.’ Do YOU think she should have starved for a film role?

Hollywood darling Anne Hathaway was spotted filming scenes for Les Miserables on April 19 looking like a ghost of her former self — after dropping a whopping 16 pounds in only three weeks. She was required to lose the weight after producers told her she looked too healthy to play a tuberculosis victim.

In order to reach her goal weight quickly, Anne resorted to desperate measures, “eating nothing more than a couple of apples a day, and some protein – mainly in the form of a shake,” a source told The Daily Mirror last month.

According to a report in The Daily Mail, producers are making sure doctors follow the 29-year-old actress closely throughout production on the film.

We admire Anne’s commitment and dedication, but we’re worried she looks malnourished! Stay healthy, Anne!

Do you think Anne should have lost so much weight for a role, HollywoodLifers?
