“The Dark Knight Rises” actress Anne Hathaway follows mainly a vegan diet because of how it makes her look and feel.
“I don’t go the soy-meat route; I have a really plant-based diet,” Hathaway told USA Today [via Examiner.com]. “So I wind up cooking at home a lot. Kale is amazing. Spelt [a kind of wheat] pasta is amazing. I can’t do the white-flour stuff. It makes me really ill.”
Anne used a vegan diet to help her lose weight for several films, including the biggest blockbuster movie of the year, “The Dark Knight Rises”, for role as Catwoman. But even after the movies wrapped, Anne ended up sticking with the vegan eating habits.
For her physical training for the movie, Anne took four months of dance, martial arts, and stunt training.
“Keeping a consistent weight was hard,” she says. “I worked really hard, but I wouldn’t describe it as killer. I was able to shift my entire life so it became about transforming myself into the character.
“Everyone in my life understood, and if I went out to meals with friends they understood that I could only go to certain restaurants. It required a ton of hard work and discipline, which I never had to do before.”
And right after she finished filming the movie, she binged on pizza and wine.
“After I finished the rooftop fight, I ate four slices of pizza and split a bottle of red wine with my guy,” she recounts. “I hadn’t eaten like that in months. I felt so ill.
“By the time the movie finished, I decided to give veganism a try. You can’t go hog-wild as a vegan. You can eat a lot of pasta and have a few vegan pastries.”
Anne also has talked about her “crazy” diet and her weight training regimen for her role in “Les Misérables” in the July issue of Allure.
