Talk about sacrificing your health for the job!

Anne Hathaway was very dedicated to her role of Fantine in Les Misérables; in fact, she was so dedicated that she nearly sacrificed her wellbeing!

Cutting her hair wasn’t enough, so the actress decided to drop 25lbs for the part too! She explained her drastic desision, saying:

"I see the sort of work that people like Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet can do, and I want to do that level of work so badly. But I don't believe I'm as gifted as them. So the only thing I can control is how hard I work at it — how much do I commit to it? How far will I take it?… If I have an extra glass of wine the night before I shoot a scene. I don't feel good about myself because of that. If I see it on-screen, the guilt is immediate. I feel like maybe I've let the scene down."

Sounds grueling!

The director, Tom Hooper, worried about Anne, and didn’t like the weight loss. He said, "To be honest, I thought she was going further than she should, and I tried to discourage her."

Well somebody had to say something!

Anne acknowledged him, and said, “Tom didn't like what I was doing, but he understood why I was doing it. No one liked what I was doing. By the end, people were hugging me and they would get emotional because I felt so frail."

We definitely understand wanting to give your all to your work, but at what cost?

Thankfully, she’s back to her normal eating habits, and should be back to a healthy weight in no time!

    I was surprised she had so much hair getting out of the car at the premier(as seen from those low camera angles). I guess she's married though.

    They keep saying that she will be back to healthy weight soon. But didn't she END filming several months ago? Why is she still so nasty thin?

    To me she always looks like one of those bad drag queens, who was too poor to buy a wig, so went with his own hair, and wore a dress he found in the thrift store for like $3.00

    Up until she co-hosted the Oscars I thought she was ok. I liked her in Devil Wears Prada. But since she made Les Miz, all her interviews are self-indulgent and fake. Her "I'm not as good as Meryl" comment is the equivalent of the fake faces Swifty makes every freaking time she wins a music award. "I WON?!?!?!?" Puhleeze girl, you ain't foolin me.

    She is sooooooooooooooooooo overrated. Go away!!!

    This sounds deeper than what shes leading on to believe. Anne has admitted in the last that she has body image issues and never feels skinny enough. The control issues, not feeling adequate enough, self critical…Ive been down that road before. The only difference is I couldnt use filming a movie as an excuse for not eating. She better talk to someone before it spirals out of control.

    Anne once was confident. Then she met Adam, since then she has come to doubt her self, her ability, and generally been tempting him to punish her for her miss deeds. Like her flashing the Paparazzi, her smile and cheery wave to fans while flipping the bird or point at her crotch with the other. Her tales changes to protect her innocent mate, her hospitalizing injurys were accidents he just happened to be there. BATTERED SPOUSE people

    Ok first of all stop adcertising commenters and I think Anne really was determined and I'm actually quite proud of her she actually wanted to achieve something she believes she hadn't however she took a step further with that she doesn't have to lose that much weight for some film she can do Anathor thousand films and not have to lose weight but she was really brave to do it so we have to give her a little credit don't ya think

    Its amazing how far some will go for an Oscar. I mean, can you not just, y'know, ACT? You dont have to physically become that person and change your life and eating habits! and yet again an actress will be getting an oscar for just a few minute performance of a song. At least she wasnt miming like that con artist Jennifer hudson. Most undeserved oscar ever.

    I sometimes think by reading these comments that at least half the men in America want the majority of women in America to be bulemic or have anorexia.
    Here is a good diet tip for you. Get laid off, your husband dies, and you have to live on Social Security and a small pension which means you can afford 1.5 meals per day (the .5 is for a half sandwich and piece of fruit). Oh and the small pension will run out in about 5 years which means moving into a shelter. Section 8 housing has been closed for several years (no funding and no availability). It is heck getting old.
    Wish them the best for the New Year and to everyone else at Perez Hilton.

    Smile, mean it, and just be. Play a new tape. How at the top do you need to be? All things come in good time. She's practically an ingenue.
