Anne Hathaway Finally Refuses To Talk About Her Les Miserables Weight Loss!

Anne Hathaway Finally Refuses To Talk About Her Les Miserables Weight Loss!

I’ve ragged on the Anne Hathaway Les Miserables PR tactic of constantly discussing her weight loss, but her interview with Matt Lauer on the Today Show is forcing me to renege (a little) on my constant complaints. When asked how she lost 25 pounds to play the role of Fantine, Hathaway finally did the right thing: She explained that she didn’t want to inadvertently give quick weight loss advice to her fans, and then…she actually didn’t talk about her weight loss.

Dear Anne Hathaway: Weight Loss Is Not The Most Interesting Thing About Your Life

Dear Anne Hathaway: Weight Loss Is Not The Most Interesting Thing About Your Life

Another month, another magazine with Anne Hathaway on the cover talking about her Les Miserables weight loss. This time it’s Glamour, which features Anne smiling in a grown-out pixie cut in revealing outfits that headlines say “show off her weight loss”–as if she’s just reached her goal weight after struggling to get healthy. But no: It’s just more chatter about her incredible Les Miserables vanishing act. We didn’t think it was possible, but she’s still. talking. about. it. More »

Anne Hathaway’s Les Miserables Diet Was ‘Dried Oatmeal Paste’ Squares. Do Those Even Exist?

Anne Hathaway's Les Miserables Diet Was 'Dried Oatmeal Paste' Squares. Do Those Even Exist?

According to Vogue, Anne Hathaway‘s Les Miserables diet consisted of “two thin squares of dried oatmeal paste a day,” but no one can really figure out what that means. New York Magazine says that her diet, if mysterious, was at least historically accurate, playing up the same justification that she’s hinted at for her extreme weight loss: “getting in character.” But aside from oats being something that poor people may have eaten in 19th-century France, they don’t really have any insight into what it was that 21st-century Anne Hathaway was eating, either. Preliminary research indicates that she was either lying, or has a really sadistic personal chef. More »

Anne Hathaway Tells Vogue She Felt ‘Deprived’ After Les Miserables (Probably Thanks To That Starvation Diet)

Anne Hathaway Tells Vogue She Felt 'Deprived' After Les Miserables (Probably Thanks To That Starvation Diet)

Anne Hathaway is on the cover of December’s Vogue, and the cover story is mostly about her experience filming Les Miserables (also coming out in December). And since you can’t talk about Les Mis without talking about her weight, she’s found a new way to say that she starved herself for the role: That she felt “deprived, physically and emotionally.” She gets some points for being creative, but I really wish she’d just be honest about how unhealthy it is to lose 25 pounds for a role.

Let’s Stop Applauding Anne Hathaway’s (Almost) Vegan Diet For Dark Knight

Let's Stop Applauding Anne Hathaway's (Almost) Vegan Diet For Dark Knight

Anne Hathaway got a lot of attention for surviving on “kale and dust” back when she was filming Dark Knight…and we sort of dug her frankness about the strict austerity it took to squeeze into a catsuit. But now that the movie’s out, and she’s dished more details on her diet, fans have begun applauding her “almost-vegan” Catwoman diet. Now, to be clear: Blisstree has taken advantage of the occasional celebrity endorsement to highlight veganism’s popularity and merits. But Hathaway’s mixed messages about her diet, health and weight just don’t jive with my idea of a pro-vegan, pro-health agenda for me. More »

In The Age Of CGI, Why Should Anne Hathaway Starve Herself For Les Miserables?

In The Age Of CGI, Why Should Anne Hathaway Starve Herself For Les Miserables?

Anne Hathaway is apparently eating 500 calories per day in an effort to shed 16 pounds for her role in Les Miserables—or at least, a few scenes of the film. Unlike other roles that have required Hathaway to lose weight (like Catwoman, for example), her role as Fantine—a prostitute who dies and later returns as a ghost—only calls for her to look emaciated for some of the time she spends on screen. Which, for an already-thin actress, wouldn’t be too hard to accomplish with CGI. So why should Anne Hathaway starve herself, or even lose any weight at all? More »
