Anne Hathaway’s weight loss for the 2012 movie Les Miserables made headlines and shocked a lot of people. The actress lost 25 pounds for her role as the starving prostitute Fantine. Hathaway said she basically stopped eating for 13 days during shooting. Cast members described her diet leading up to and during filming as consisting of lettuce and greens. The role earned her an Oscar, though. We hope it was worth it.
