The actress — who will play single mother and prostitute Fantine in the movie adaptation of French novel Les Miserables — is reportedly on a severe diet as she tries to drop two sizes in time for the death scenes in the movie. And sources say the star is eating only two apples and a protein shake a day.
“Anne is playing a destitute factory worker-come-lady of the night,” an insider said. “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. 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.”
