Anne Hathaway is reportedly in a 500 calorie diet in a bid to drop two dress sizes in time for her 'Les Miserables' death scenes.
Anne Hathaway is reportedly on a 500 calorie diet.
The 'Devil Wears Prada' star - who plays single mother and prostitute Fantine - is said to be surviving on just two apples a day and a protein shake.
A source said: ''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 (21lbs) - 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.''
The source told the Daily Mirror: ''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.''
