Anne Hathaway's 500 Calorie a Day Diet

Anne Hathaway, who is famous for her long, beautiful tresses, sported a newly cropped hairdo on recent outing in London. It was a shocking sight for the paparazzi but as it turned out, the pixie cut was a part of the actress’ preparation to appear in the upcoming film “Les Miserables.”

29-year-old Hollywood beauty Anne Hathaway had chopped off her long locks, leaving only one inch of hair on her head in order to achieve the look of her character, Fantine, in “Les Miserables.”

Apart from losing her gorgeous brunette locks, Anne Hathaway had to go on a crash diet for her latest film role as well. According to reports, the actress cut her daily food intake down to only 500 calories and that’s the reason why she revealed a slimmer frame as she left London’s The Box nightclub early Sunday morning.

Anne Hathaway plays a terminally ill factory worker, Fantine, who becomes a prostitute to take care of her illegitimate child and sells her hair for money. The actress was supposedly told to drop 16 pounds but she couldn’t arrive at the target.

An insider spilled to the Daily Mirror, as quoted by the UK’s Daily Mail: “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 - 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,” the source added.

A representative for Anne Hathaway confirmed reports that the actress has been dieting to lose weight for the film but denied the specific numbers, stating according to Us Magazine, “The numbers are exaggerated in both pounds and calories.”

Apart from the strict diet, Anne Hathaway had also been vigorously working out to lose weight for her role in "Les Miserables." “Anne was exercising two hours a day, five days a week!" a source told Us Magazine.

It isn't the first time “The Devil Wears Prada” star Anne Hathaway has been forced to shed her pounds. Previously, the actress said she lived on "kale and dust” to appear as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Anne Hathaway is probably best known for her role in the “Princess Diaries” movies.
