Anne Hathaway: I Lived Off Hummus & Radishes To Drop 16 Pounds

The insanely drastic diet that Anne Hathaway was forced to endure to drop 16 lbs FAST to play tuberculosis victim in the film ‘Les Miserables!”

Anne Hathaway turned into a gym rat for her leather catsuit costume in The Dark Knight Rises, but a crazy new diet left her looking skinnier than ever for her Les Miserables role.

In an effort to shed weight to play a dying prostitute in Les Miserables, Anne’s been trying out a detox diet: nothing but hummus and radishes!  She dished on the diet with Allure during a recent photoshoot.

“I’m doing some crazy weight stuff right now,” said Anne. “I’m on day six of detox…This diet makes me break out, so I love that. Nothing like living on hummus and radishes, and then be all, ‘And I got a pimple. Yeah!’”

While she’s hardly thrilled by the diet, her commitment to her roles sets her apart from other actresses — this isn’t the first time she’s had to trim down. Her performance as Catwoman in the July 2012 film, The Dark Knight Rises, required a rigorous exercise regimen… just to fit into that leather catsuit!

“I didn’t understand how you could be thin and strong. I went into the gym for ten months and didn’t come out,” Anne says.

While she struggled with her body throughout the process of filming The Dark Knight Rises, she said the challenge of staying in shape “was a psychological terrorist.”

“The suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit…. It dominated my year,” said Anne.

We can’t wait to see her in Les Miserables, but we certainly hope she’s back to eating healthy!

What do you think of her diet, HollywoodLifers?
