Anne Hathaway Covers Vogue, Talks Pixie Cut and 25 lbs Starvation Diet for 'Les Misérables'
A newly married Anne Hathaway glows on Vogue's December Cover.
Draped in satin and diamonds, a soft berry pout, lush chestnut waves and delicate porcelain-colored cleavage, Hathaway stuns in the Mario Testino-lensed cover shoot for the storied fashion publication.
It's hard to believe the actress is now 25 lbs lighter, starring as the emaciated and destitute Fantine in the famous Broadway musical-turned-movie, Les Misérables.
Hathaway, who had already gotten in killer shape for The Dark Knight Rises, took her vegan/ weight lifting/yoga routine one extreme step further for her role in Les Miz.
After an initial cleanse where she lost 10 pounds, Hathaway shed an additional 15 on a near-starvation diet consisting of two thin squares of dried oatmeal paste a day. “I had to be obsessive about it—the idea was to look near death,” she told the magazine. “Looking back on the whole experience—and I don’t judge it in any way—it was definitely a little nuts. It was definitely a break with reality, but I think that’s who Fantine is anyway.”
For her role, the actress also had to chop off her shoulder-length locks for a severe pixie style. “I love the short-haired lifestyle,” Hathaway told the magazine. I’m turning 30, and — I hope this isn’t obnoxious to say — I feel prettier, and much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now.”
On a different note, the recently married star shared some details about her pink Valentino wedding dress. “I begged him [Valentino] during the first fitting to make the train detachable. He looked at me and said, ‘But it is a dress, not a costume,’” Hathaway told Vogue.
