The already bony Anne Hathaway is being asked to lose 16 pounds to play Fantine in the big screen version of the Broadway musical Les Misérables. A film source told the Daily 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.” With so little time, Anne has been placed on a diet of 500 calories per day. That’s approximately 1,500 less calories than she would need to eat to maintain her weight. The source added, “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.” Les Misérables, which also stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Helena Bonham Carter, will open in theatres December 14, 2012.
