"It Was A Psychological Terrorist"

While Batman fought Bane in the new 'Dark Knight Rises' film, Catwoman battled her own intimidating nemesis: her costume. In a new interview, actress Anne Hathaway details her struggle with fitting into the slinky leather costume -- and how a vegan diet helped her do it.

In an interview with Allure, Hathaway, 29, says she spent an entire year fretting over how she would fit into the skin-tight burglar outfit worn by her character, Selina Kyle.

"It was a psychological terrorist," Hathaway said. "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 gym for ten months and didn't come out."

Not only did she have to work out, but she also had to drastically change her diet. Hathaway's nutritional coach, Jackie Keller, told Shape magazine that the actress lived on a diet of miso soup, brown rise, tempeh sandwiches and vegetarian egg rolls.

The move to a vegan diet during filming has prompted Hathaway to try it out full-time. Of course, that didn't happen without a few hiccups.

"After I finished the rooftop fight [scene], I ate four slices of pizza and split a bottle of red wine with my guy," she said. "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"

I tried vegan diet before, but it didn't work out so well..It's so hard to resist eating meat!!..I prefer doing a balance diet (healthy fat, right amount of carbs and carbo) and works for every metabolism like hotdietsolutionreview(dot)com/the-diet-solution/..We doesn't need to have extreme vegan diet like anne did for losing weight :D

I have been vegan for 25 years (vegetarian since a child). I would say barbaric cruelty to animals and destruction of the environment (not to mention 90% food waste in a world where children are starving) is extreme. I would advise anyone to eat as vegan as possible for ehical as well as health reasons.

It's exciting to hear that many celebrities are taking up a vegan lifestyle and bringing attention to its many benefits. Anne Hathaway is a great role model for many women, and hopefully some will follow in her footsteps.
