Anne Hathaway Told to Lose 16 Pounds In Three Weeks

| by

Anne Hathaway has allegedly gone on a crash diet to prepare for her role in the movie adaptation of Les Miserables. Crash diet? More like sexy diet.

From the Daily Mail:

The actress, 29, has been ordered to lose 16lbs in less than three weeks to play dying prostitute Fantine in the movie adaptation of Les Miserables. Instead of eating the recommended daily allowance of 2,000 calories a day, the actress is now down to under 500 to achieve the rapid result. A film source told the Daily Mirror:

"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 (21 pounds) - 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. 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."
