10 Actors Who Have Gone Very Far to Get Their Role

Anne Hathaway | Les Miserables

Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries (2001), Brokeback Mountain (2005), The Devil Wears Prada (2006), Rio (2011), Interstellar (2014) and others) lost 5 kilos in just 3 weeks prior to her performance in Les Miserables ( 2012). She also lost 7 kilos during production. “I followed a strict starvation diet to look almost dead …” said Hathaway. In terms of content, however, she wants to disclose as little as possible about her diet to discourage people from following her “bad example”.

“I had to stop eating during the 13 days of filming.”
