In la-la land, it pays off to have a body that your fans envy; especially more recently, as the world moves deeper and deeper into this health craze that we know as juicing, fruition diets and GMO free lifestyles. Unfortunately for celebrities, they are normally the guinea pigs for these diet trends and it can either help or hinder them in so many ways. We have all heard of method actors (some great examples include the likes of Christian Bale, Leo DiCaprio and Daniel Day Lewis), they are the actors who stay in character and do whatever it takes to embody who they are portraying. Along with the typical mannerisms, comes the physical aspect. Some celebrities have put themselves on crazy diets to physically live up to the standards of these demanding often fictional characters. With these crazy diets comes horror stories of starvation, deadly cleanses and out of control burping. Imagine living off of something called oatmeal paste so you can play a tuberculosis stricken prostitute; Anne Hathaway can tell you all about it. Or how about eating one meal a day to lose a quick 40 pounds, then having to stop eating entirely to lose the last 10 pounds. Not only are these stories depressing, they are very real and apparently do-able. People who tend to believe that being an actor is quite possibly the easiest job on the planet, think again. Take a look at this list of actors who had to suffer to make the films you loved.
10 Lily James – Cinderella Diet: Liquid Diet (Soup)
9 Beyonce – Dream Girls Diet: Lemon, Maple Syrup and Cayenne Pepper Juice
8 Mark Wahlberg – The Gambler Diet: Liquid Diet
7 Ashton Kutcher – Jobs Diet: Fruitarian Diet
6 Michael Fassbender – Hunger Diet: Berries, Nuts and Sardines
5 Matthew McConaughy – Dallas Buyers Club Diet: Diet Coke, Egg Whites, Pudding
4 Robert Pattinson – The Rover Diet: White Bread and Barbecue Sauce
3 Jared Leto – Dallas Buyers Club Diet: Starved Himself
2 Anne Hathaway – Les Miserables Diet: Dried Oatmeal Paste Squares
1 Christian Bale – The Machinist Diet: Apple, Black Coffee and Cigarettes
Actor Christian Bale went through extreme measures in order to prepare for his role as an industrial worker who has insomnia. It was reported that he lost more than 60 pounds in four months, with a menu that consisted of one apple, black coffee and cigarettes. Christian’s scary frame made for a good film but his daily menu had everyone questioning his sanity, his health and everything else he did during this time. It was pretty awesome that he had the strength and will power to stick to such a harsh diet; then again, acting is his lively-hood. Maybe next time he stays away from the cigarettes.
