Anne Hathaway is currently filming ‘Les Miserables’ in London. The actress looks like she’s taking a little break, as she was spotted vacationing in Miami with some friends. According to sources, she was in town to help Valentino celebrate his 80th birthday.
She showed off her smaller body, and much shorter hair while playing at the beach over the weekend.
The actress was asked to shave her head – and lose weight – for her portrayal of Fatine, a dying prostitute, in ‘Les Miserables’. Apparently Anne was asked to lose almost 20 pounds for the movie, to make her character’s death bed scenes “more realistic”. She’s reportedly on a diet of about 500 calories a day, in the hopes that by the end of filming, she’ll go from her size 10 – to a size 6.
A film set source told our mate Clemmie at the Mirror: “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.
“Producers have assigned her a personal trainer and she is literally eating nothing more than a couple of apples a day, and some protein – mainly in the form of a shake.
“Anne knows the risk of such an extreme diet and will undergo weekly medicals to make sure everything is still functioning as it should do.”
The movie is based on the hit West End musical and also stars hunks Eddie Redmayne (FIT), Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe. The cast began filming early this month.
It’s due to hit cinemas in December, so Anne’ll have time to get her beautiful curves back for the premiere.
I can’t wait to see the movie! I hope it does the play justice!
I’ve also added some pictures of her shopping around in Miami, so you can get a better look at how skinny she’s getting!
