“You can never be too rich or too thin,” said Wallis Warfield Simpson.
Seventy years later Wallis’ words still ring true when you consider that actress, Anne Hathaway‘s 25 pound weight loss is on track to win her a Golden Globe for the role of Fantine in the film, Les Miserable making her richer and more famous than ever!
But what’s the price of being rich enough to eat nothing?
Anne Hathaway told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘I just had to stop eating all for a total of 13 days shooting.’
The 29-year-old shed the weight in two stages: she dropped 10lbs in three weeks before filming, and then 15lbs during production.
Her ten-year-old British co-star Isabelle Allen, who plays Fantine’s daughter Cosette, described Miss Hathaway’s diet as ‘rabbit food’ and said it left the actress so fragile that she broke her arm in a fall. ‘She she was only eating salad and greens and vegetables because of her diet, because of her character,” and added added that Anne had broken her arm because ‘she was so thin and fragile. She was riding a bike and she broke her arm’.
Isabelle said she treated Miss Hathaway as ‘a big sister’ during the filming and admitted she has wanted to be like her since she saw her in The Princess Diaries.
Hathaway said: ‘I was on a starvation diet to look like I was near death in a film… but I went at it with a plan and I had a guide, a nutritionist kind of helped me with it.’
Eating disorder campaigners say the time the two spent together may not have been good for Isabelle and warned that the film industry has a ‘toxic preoccupation with extreme thinness.’
