If this report is true, Anne Hathaway is exercising a lot of will power! The British publication Daily Mirror is reporting that the Oscar nominee is on a 500 calorie diet in preparation for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables after she was asked to lose 16 pounds in three weeks. 

“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,” the Daily Mirror reports. 

Anne, 29, is taking on the role of a dying, hungry prostitute, and according to London Daily Mail, she was a healthy size 10 before starting this crash diet. She’s not the only one who’s shed some weight for this movie.

The usually jacked Hugh Jackman, 43, was nearly unrecognizable when spotted on set as the character of Jean Valjean.

Other familiar faces to join Hugh and Anne in this classic tale include Amanda Seyfried (Cosette), Helena Bonham-Carter (Madame Thénardier), Russell Crow (Javert) and Sacha Baron Cohen (Monsieur Thénardier).

Do you think this weight loss regimen is too extreme for a role, or is it part of the job? Sound off in the comments.
