Anne Hathaway admitted that dieting for movie roles took its toll

Anne Hathaway had to live off hummus and radishes to drop the weight for Les Miserables.

The actress, who plays French, poverty-stricken prostitute Fantine in the musical story, spoke to Allure magazine about putting her body through the mill to prepare for roles over the years.

Of wearing a catsuit for Catwoman, Anne said: "(It was) a psychological terrorist.

"The suit, thoughts of my suit, changing my life so I would fit into that suit... It dominated my year.

"I didn't understand how you could be thin and strong. I went into the 10 for ten months and didn't come out."

On Les Mis, she was quoted as saying: "I'm doing some crazy weight stuff right now. I'm on day six of detox...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!'"

The Devil Wears Prada star told Allure she was told to get Botox when she was just 23, but she ignored the advice.
