ANNE Hathaway is desperate to lose weight!
The actress is said to be on a 500-calorie-a-day diet in a bid to drop two dress sizes in time for her death scenes in the movie adaptation of Les Miserables.
Anne — who plays single mother and prostitute Fantine — is said to be surviving on just two apples a day and a protein shake.
“Anne is playing a destitute factory worker-come-lady of the night,” a source said.
“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.
“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.”
