Anne Hathaway's Agonizing 'Les Miserables' Diet Revealed


Anne Hathaway is having a good week. The extended trailer for her new musical Les Miserables hit the web last week, she hosted “SNL” on Saturday and today is her 30th Birthday! And according to Anne, life couldn’t be better.

“I hope this isn’t obnoxious to say,” she told Vogue, “I feel prettier, and much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now.”

Oh, we forgot to mention she also just got married to beau of 4 years Adam Shulman, whom she says she’s found, “true love—the full-on romantic, till-death-do-us-part real deal.”

However, everything wasn’t all roses and rainbows, when she was filming Les Miserables she lost 25 pounds and had to play a prostitute with tuberculosis, and since she’s super method, it was a rough few months.

“I was in such a state of deprivation—physical and emotional. When I got home, I couldn’t react to the chaos of the world without being overwhelmed.”

That “deprivation” being a near-starvation diet that consisted of eating two squares of dried oatmeal a day.

“Looking back on the whole experience—and I don’t judge it in any way—it was definitely a little nuts. It was definitely a break with reality.”

She adds that if it weren’t for her now-hubby being there everyday she came home from set “miserable” she would have went nuts.

“It took me weeks till I felt like myself again. The first time I really threw everything into a part, which was when I did Rachel Getting Married, there was no one waiting for me when I got back. This time, Adam was there. He gets what I do and who I am and supports me in it, and that’s pretty awesome.”

By now, she’s bounced back to a healthy weight and disposition and showed off her spectacular range by making her third appearance on SNL this weekend.

Her standout sketch was one where she parodied Claire Danes from “Homeland” complete with over-reacting and everything. Watch it here.
