Is Anne Hathaway Only Eating 500 Calories a Day?

March 30, 2012

Anne Hathaway is preparing for her upcoming role in Les Miserables and the rumor mill is swirling with reports that the actress is only eating 500 calories a day so she can lose 20 pounds in just a few short weeks. 

According to the reports, Hathaway has sought out the the help of trainers and a doctor to lose the weight and is currently living on a couple apples a day and protein shakes.

However, Hathaway's rep has spoken out to squash the rumors and say that while she is looking to lose weight, she is going about it in a much healthier way. 

"This story is a huge exaggeration," said Stephen Huvane, Hathaway's rep. "Anne is on a special diet, but is not looking to lose that much weight and she's consuming more than 500 calories a day. She just needs to look more frail as she is playing a prostitute who is dying of tuberculosis."
