Anne Hathaway Detoxes for Blockbuster Roles

Anne Hathaway Detoxes for Blockbuster Roles

The Oscar-nominated actress preps for 'Les Miserables' with radishes and hummus

How do you go about preparing to portray a prostitute who is dying of tuberculosis?

If you are Anne Hathaway, you begin by dieting. In preparation for her new role as Fantine in the movie adaptation of Les Miserables, the actress detoxed in order to shed an estimated 15 pounds.

"I’m doing some crazy weight stuff right now," Hathaway admitted to Allure in an interview for its July 2012 issue.

During the cover shoot, the actress noshed on salad greens and hummus. However, this isn’t Hathaway’s first experience with extreme diets. To prepare for her Catwoman role (and for wearing the catsuit), she admitted to surviving on "kale and dust."

What could be worse than giving up all of your favorite foods in preparation for a role? Giving up your favorite foods and still getting pimples. Hathaway jokes about the diet’s unfortunate side effects — acne.

"Nothing like living on hummus and radishes and then be all, 'And I got a pimple. Yeah!'" she said.

Diet and pimples? Somebody please give her an Oscar already.


Anne Hathaway Catwoman Diet: How The ⟚rk Knight Rises' Star Fit Into 'The Suit'

Celebrities' body transformations for film roles are no longer the headline-makers they once were -- we've seen Oscar winners pack on and drop dozens of pounds time and again, and the movie-going public is not as easily impressed anymore.

But get a star talking about a costume that was a "psychological terrorist," and suddenly everyone's wondering what's going on underneath all that black spandex.

For Anne Hathaway's turn as Catwoman in the Batman finale "The Dark Knight Rises," the actress invested in Jackie Keller as her personal nutrition coach. No stranger to celebrities, the specialist has worked with clients like Angelina Jolie, Channing Tatum, Reese Witherspoon and Uma Thurman.

"[Hathaway] didn't come to us out of shape or having any particular issues, but she wanted to tone up," Keller tells The Huffington Post Canada. "Primarily, our objective was to get her the right food so she could train and act in the physically demanding way she needed to."

So what exactly is the right food when you're doing stunt training and an hour-and-a-half of dance five days a week, according to Hathaway's interview with Harper's Bazaar? Keller chose an anti-inflammatory diet for the star, a program which emphasizes cooling foods to help reduce bloating, headaches and other physical ailments that come from the literal swelling of the body from the inside.

"Inflammation in the body can lead to all kinds of heart issues, and sets the stage for heart attacks, strokes, vascular issues, diabetes -- it can be the root of many diseases like arthritis," Keller says. "In Anne's case, she's a veggie, near vegan, so we started with that dietary platform."

The actress was also calorie-controlled, taking in between 1500 to 1800 calories a day (1800 and 2200 is recommended for normal intake). "We weren’t concerned about minimizing Anne’s calories," Keller emphasizes. "We were concerned about minimizing unproductive calories. We wanted to make sure everything she ate helped her in some way."

"The good news is she likes hummus. The bad news is whoever is feeding her is maybe not very creative," Keller says with a laugh. "I'm not the one that's provided her with that diet, but she’s a consummate professional, so if she believes she needs to look like an emaciated waif, she’ll do that to play that role. In Catwoman, you’ll see a finely toned, beautiful-looking woman, and I’m proud of having helped her achieve that."
