(NEW YORK) — There are diets and then there are diets.
Take, for example, actress Anne Hathaway, who in preparation to fit into her Catwoman suit for The Dark Knight Rises and play the tuberculosis-ridden prostitute Fantine in the upcoming film version of Les Miserables, the 29-year-old actress subsisted on a 500 calorie diet of radishes and hummus.
“I’m on day six of detox,” she told the latest issue of Allure magazine, adding “this diet makes me break out, so I love that. Nothing like living on hummus and radishes and then be all, ‘And I got a pimple. Yeah!'”
On top of that, she’s been working out.
“The Catwoman suit. It was a psychological terrorist,” she said. “… the suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit … it dominated my year. I went into the gym for 10 months and didn’t come out.”
