Anne Hathaway Discusses Her Plant-Based Lifestyle

The Dark Knight Rises actress now eats mostly vegan foods and reaps the benefits.

Anne Hathaway, who plays Catwoman in the upcoming blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises, tells USA Today that she now follows a plant-based diet because meat- and dairy-free foods improve her skin and figure. “I don’t go the soy-meat route; I have a really plant-based diet,” Hathaway says in the interview. The A-lister also shares, “Kale is amazing. Spelt pasta is amazing.” Hathaway, a longtime vegetarian, originally ditched dairy to lose weight and get in shape for her movie roles in The Dark Knight Rises and Les Misérables. Nevertheless, by the time filming finished, the actress decided to stick with the diet.
