Anne Hathaway Lost All That Weight For Realism, But Also For Bikini Season

Anne Hathaway bikini skinny Les Miserables starving herselfLast month, we were shocked to see Anne Hathaway suffering for her art: The actress lost 16 pounds in just three weeks before she began shooting Les Miserables, in which she plays emaciated factory-worker-turned-lady-of-the-night Fantine. But it seems her 500-calorie-a-day diet has provided her with a small reward, aside from starring in a musical blockbuster—Us magazine got these photos of a skinny Anne romping in the water in a skimpy black bikini. Perhaps Anne had an ulterior motive in slimming down…

I’m kidding, mostly. Anne was in Miami for designer Valentino‘s 80th birthday; presumably she’s finished her Les Mis scenes, since (spoiler) Fantine dies in the beginning. But honestly, even if Anne did plan this outing so that she could be super-skinny in a bikini, in the warm weather, before returning to the colder climate of New York and putting on enough weight to go back to a healthy size for her body type… Who can blame her? She might as well reap the benefits of the last few weeks of sacrifice.

    I understand that this article is supposed to be funny (dear God, I hope it’s supposed to be a joke), but it really isn’t.

    “SHE LOST A TON OF WEIGHT BY STARVING HERSELF FOR A MOVIE AND IS DANGEROUSLY UNDERWEIGHT BUT ITS COOL CUZ SHE LOOKS GOOD IN HER ‘KINI LOLOLOLOLOL”

    I love this site but this article sucks. Sorry. But to me it reads like something I’d find on a pro-ana blog. Congratulating someone who was already tiny on losing an unhealthy amount of weight because they look “better” in a bikini? Is that really the message you want to put out there?

    I’d expect this shit from Cosmo but not from you guys. You’re so kickass and awesome, your articles generally brighten my day and make me laugh so hard I lose the ability to breathe. Please don’t go down this path.

    C and Ewa – I’m really sorry that this post came across as pro-ana. That’s the LAST thing I would want! You’re right that it was a joke–the point I was trying to make is that I wouldn’t be surprised if Anne’s people staged a photo op since she was already dangerously underweight, before she went back to an actually healthy size. My sense of humor doesn’t always translate in my writing, though, and I’ll take your feedback into account when writing similar posts in the future. Thanks!
