Anne Hathaway Reveals She Got 'Really Sick' After Losing Weight for 'Les Miserables'

Anne Hathaway is opening up about an important moment in her career that also caused her to become very ill.

The 36-year-old actress reflected in an interview with People about playing Fantine in 2012′s Les Misérables, for which she won an Oscar.

“I’d lost an unhealthy amount of weight in two weeks. I didn’t know anything about nutrition. I taxed my body, and my brain bore the brunt of it for a while. I just felt very anxious and very lost at that time,” she explained.

“That weight loss was not a long-term good thing for my health, and it took a really long time to come back from it. And I was still really sick because of it.”

“I had just turned 30. I had just gotten married. Even the most positive thing can be upheavals to your identity. So to just have this moment and not really know who I was — and the moment when you just feel like you’re on display — it wasn’t a comfortable feeling. And I didn’t do what I hoped that I would if I ever found myself in that moment,” she revealed.

“Life went on beyond it. I feel much emptier now. It would have been nice if had happened then, but I’ll still take it.”
