Jessica Alba must be ready for this all to blow over!
So with all the backlash from customers, they finally decided to address the public.
Guess it was only time!
They revealed in a statement:

To shoot some specific scenes in her new movie Les Misérables, Anne Hathaway is on a crazy crash diet.
That is seriously unhealthy.
An insider said:
"Anne is playing a destitute factory worker-come-lady of the night.
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."
This seems really dangerous but it really shows her commitment to her craft.
On how she's doing it, a producer said:
"Producers have assigned her a personal trainer and she is literally eating nothing more than a couple of apples a day, and some protein – mainly in the form of a shake.
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."
A diet like this should never be used in any circumstances really.
If you're losing more than 1-2 pounds per week, you could be losing muscle mass as well.
So you'll weigh less but look worse.
UPDATE: Anne's rep has spoken out about the "crash" diet. She said:
"The story is a huge exaggeration. 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."
Okay, that's good to know, because 500 calories a day is ridiculous. That wouldn't be unhealthy, that'd be a death sentence.
