ANNE HATHAWAY Was Discouraged By Her Director To Lose Weight For “Les Miserables”

ANNE HATHAWAY was actually discouraged by her director to lose weight for her emaciated character in “Les Miserables,” according to entertainment news.

It was all her!

Many people thought that Anne Hathaway was downright crazy when she agreed to go on an extreme diet program in addition to her chopping her hair off for “Les Miserables.”

But as it turns out, the weight loss was a result of her own obsession in looking as close as possible to her deathly ill prostitute character, Fantine.

Her director, Tom Hooper, told to the Los Angeles Times in a recent interview about the already-slim married actress’ drastic weight loss:

“To be honest, I thought she was going further than she should, and I tried to discourage her.”

And he was right about talking her out of it because Anne was reportedly starving herself to lose as much as 25 pounds!

Hathaway admitted:

Tom didn’t like what I was doing, but he understood why I was doing it. No one liked what I was doing. By the end, people were hugging me, and they would get emotional because I felt so frail.”

Nonetheless, she insists that it was all worth it. And true enough, she has been generating Oscar buzz despite her thinking that her performance of the musical’s famous song “I Dreamed A Dream” was just “eh.”

Comparing herself to Oscar-winning actresses, she admitted;

“I see the sort of work that people like Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet can do, and I want to do that level of work so badly. But I don’t believe I’m as gifted as them. So the only thing I can control is how hard I work at it — how much do I commit to it? How far will I take it?”

What can you say about Anne‘s dedication to her craft?

Now that Crystal Harris has her (second) engagement ring from the well-aged Playboy founder, Hugh Hefner, it was time for her to be thrown a bridal shower-also her second, that is.

The runaway bride Playboy model, who reunited with the Hef earlier this year, celebrated her upcoming New Year’s Eve wedding with her friends on December 19 at her new lingerie store in Studio City, Femme Fatale, and mixed her two favorite things for the theme–Disney and Christmas.

The second-time fiancee explained the theme and party that her friend, Ashley Matthau, threw her to Us Weekly:

“We really love Disney. We are huge fans. We go to Disneyland together a lot. My favorite movie is The Little Mermaid, so she got me an Ariel-themed cake.”

She continued:

“I was deciding what kind of shower I wanted, and I thought I didn’t really want a lingerie shower, since I have more than enough lingerie.”

Now, Harris can’t wait until she finally walks down the aisle… for real. She revealed:

“We’re keeping it really small this time. We’re happy about it. It’s going to be a quiet private wedding here at the Mansion with our close friends. Staying at home.”

She explained:

“I think with everything that happened before — we want to keep it quiet and private. Last time it turned into a a big ordeal and then it all fell apart.”

Take a look at how her shower went down the second time HERE.

Mariah Carey Goes Fa-La-La-La-La-Louis Vuitton Shopping In Aspen

Aspen is clearly a one-stop shopping paradise for Mariah Carey!

Just a few days before Christmas, the snowy diva was spotted shopping at the Gucci store in town. And right before the clock struck midnight on Christmas Eve, MiMi decided to pick up some last-minute gifts at none other than Louis Vuitton.

Um, like we said earlier, we’d love to be on her 2013 Xmas list!

The All I Want For Christmas Is You singer was extra festive as she was seen wearing super tight-skinned black pants, a green leather jacket and some earmuffs as she casually walked down the holiday lane.

We’re sure the Carey-Cannon family had a very merry Christmas this year!

So precious!
