Prior to filming, the actress undertook an intense depravation diet in order to realistically portray Fantine, a prostitute dying of tuberculosis. “I’m doing some crazy weight stuff right now,” Hathaway, 29, tells Allure magazine. “I’m on day six of detox.”
To add insult to injury, her restricted eating plan wreaked havoc on her skin. “This diet makes me break out, so I love that,” she gripes. “Nothing like living on hummus and radishes and then be all, ‘And I got a pimple. Yeah!’”
Fantine wasn’t the only part that required a major lifestyle change for the Oscar nominee. To fit into her catsuit for The Dark Knight Rises, “I went into the gym for ten months and didn’t come out,” Hathaway jokes.
