Anne Hathaway has admitted that she was “obsessive” about her 11kg weight loss for her role in Les Miserables, eating just two thin squares of dried oatmeal paste a day.
In an interview with Vogue, Anne reveals that for her role as the prostitute Fantine she was in a state of “deprivation, physical and emotional” when shooting ended – she dropped 4kg on a cleansing diet before filming began and another 7kg during a two-week break in filming.
Anne also said she believes she was in an unhealthy state of mind at the time. “I had to be obsessive about it – the idea was to look near death. Looking back on the whole experience – and I don’t judge it in any way- I was a little nuts.”
