Anne Hathaway has gone completely vegan, even with on-screen shoewear

Poor Anne Hathaway. Have we forgiven her yet? I’m dying to forgive her! But that’s just me – I’m a Hathaway Apologist. Yes, I find her annoying and full of it, but I think she’s talented and I enjoy her. Sometimes I enjoy yelling at her. Anyway, today we’re going to hear about some of Annie’s latest Oscar campaign moves. She’s stopped talking about her poor, maligned vadge (sort of) and she’s moved on to other things… things that will hopefully win her that Oscar! First off, you know these hideous, terrible, atrocious Tom Ford “boots” that she wore during her beav-flash? They were completely animal-free. Annie is all vegan, all cruelty free now:

Anne Hathaway wowed onlookers when she stepped out on the red carpet of the Les Misérables premiere in her strappy leather bondage boots. But if you wanted to recreate her look at home, you can think again because not only did Anne’s killer boots come with a four figure price tag, but they were custom-made with faux leather to keep in line with her Vegan roots.

Hathaway showed her commitment to cruelty-free ethics when she stepped out in head-to-toe spring 2013 Tom Ford, along with the custom-made vegan version of his gladiator dominatrix boots. And it wasn’t just her red carpet footwear that she demanded adhered to her morals.

According to Footwear News, all of her character Fantine’s shoes had to be custom-made to be vegan for the actress.

‘[Hathaway]‘s vegan, so we couldn’t use any animal materials on the shoes for her character Fantine,’ costume designer Paco Delgado told the magazine. ‘We had to find very specific shoemakers to create lace-up boots and ankle boots.’

Hathaway first became a hard-core vegan after her role The Dark Knight Rises.

Speaking to USA Today at the time, she said: ‘After I finished the rooftop fight, I ate four slices of pizza and split a bottle of red wine with my guy. 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.’

Basically, she’s talking about her diet and her weight loss again, and she’s wrapping it up with her cruelty-free lifestyle. I’m not really sure if this part of her Oscar campaign, but it probably wouldn’t hurt, I guess. It actually reminds me of Natalie Portman’s Black Swan Oscar campaign – Portman kept talking about her veganism (and how she gave it up partially while pregnant) around that time too.

But, I know for sure that this next story is about Annie’s Oscar campaign. Anne just admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that she had a “secret” broken arm earlier this year:

“I broke my arm and kept it a secret… I broke it when I finished Les Miserables, just before Batman press came out. I fell off my bicycle and that’s how I broke it and when my husband (Adam Shulman) went to pick up my pain meds (medication), the pharmacist was like, ‘Catwoman can’t ride a bike?’ So I was like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t let anyone know about this.’ I managed to keep it a secret. Until now.”

Hathaway even had to undergo surgery, but she outfoxed reporters on her press tour by taking off her splint before interviews, revealing, “I had to have surgery, so I didn’t have to have a cast, I just had a removable splint.”

However, the beauty is no stranger to broken bones – the accident-prone star has previously fractured her pinky, coccyx, and left arm – twice.

I really don’t understand why it was a big deal to let people know she had broken her arm? WTF? It wasn’t like there was an insurance issue – she clearly states that it was AFTER she finished filming Les Mis. There’s no insurance issue. She wasn’t working. So why would she need to “hide” her injury, unless it was simply to let people know NOW that she aches and breaks bones for her ART? Incidentally, do you think it’s a coincidence that she broke something shortly after going vegan and starving herself for Les Mis? She’s going to end up like Gwyneth Paltrow – vitamin deficient and with early-onset osteoporosis.

Last thing – Anne was Chelsea Lately last night. UGH, I wish celebrities would stop with Chelsea Handler, but all of Chelsea’s guests tend to be associated with CAA, so there you go. Here’s some video:

    LOL. Her campaigning is priceless.

  2. littlestar says:

    You know, she’s still pretty thin looking. I love that sparkly dress she’s wearing in the last picture, but I could never pull it off. I really think you need to be “smaller” to look good in something like that with such thin straps. My shoulders are so wide I’d look like a line backer. Anyway, I wonder how much weight she gained back after her weight loss for the movie? Doesn’t look like much to me.

  3. Kate says:

    One more reason to hate her god I hope she doesn’t win an Oscar

  4. Sisi says:

    she really is trying to be mentioned several times a week, isn’t she…
    I’m so tired of it.

    say siomething nice… her hair looks good atm

  5. k says:

    Can’t stand her. But she does have pretty eyes.

  6. Post-It's says:

    I’ve had enough of The Hathaway.

  7. RN says:

    It sounds as if she’s using a vegan lifestyle simply as a means to keep her weight low. I’d respect it more if she really were dedicated to ending the suffering of animals.

  8. remotecontrol says:

    I can’t tell the difference in her body from she trained for Catwoman, starved for Fantine, and poses now on the red carpet. She is borderline emaciated in all of them. It just goes to show how if an actress wants to look “normal” she needs to be at least ten pounds underweight. Hollywood has some messed-up standards of what is normal for women’s bodies.

    Bitches be skinny.

  9. emmie_a says:

    Sometimes reading what celebrities eat and what they think is a lot of food or pigging out cracks me up. Four slices of pizza is nothing! Maybe I’m just a huge oinker but that is not a pig out to me. An entire pizza, breadsticks and dessert yeah but not four slices!

  10. Nessa says:

    Try-hard. It’s too much, Annie. Waaaay too much.

  11. Hannah says:

    It’s one thing for her to be vegan – her choice. But making the costume people on the movie find vegan shoes? That’s just being a pain in the neck, isn’t it?

    • bettyrose says:

      I’ve always found the “vegan shoe” thing kind of funny, because most shoes you buy at Target, Payless Shoes, etc. are leather free. Doesn’t mean they’re entirely vegan, but they’re just as vegan as high end “vegan” shoes, all of which probably used some animal products in the production cycle. Even if they didn’t, they trucks they were shipped in on did. I completely,one-thousand percent support vegan shopping, but most discount shoppers are buying vegan just by default.

    • Annie says:

      Agreed. The red carpet is one thing but when it comes to the movie she’s an actor, playing a character. I’m sure there’s a bunch of things her character would do that she wouldn’t (didn’t she play a prostitute?) so why make such a stand over footwear. Especially since it sounds like she’s a vegan for health/vanity rather than ethical reasons.

    • Cazzee says:

      I wonder what the wardrobe staff had to say about her historically inappropriate, high-maintenance costume demands….

      • Nate says:

        As someone who works in wardrobe professionally I can tell you that they had to of been miffed. Specially since that was her first film as a “vegan”. With everyone else most likely on board with whatever shoes fit the period most to get them into character better and ten she suddenly decides she wants the opposite of everyone else, that’s a whole lot of unnecessary work to fit her new mood. Her character is barely in the musical, and probably not much in the film too. An expensive headache for an actresses passing fad.

  12. cycler says:

    I’m agnostic about her in general, but I have to think that on these all day press tours where they’re doing interview after interview for hours at a time, they a) get bored to death with repeating the same talking points about the movie/ their character etc, and b) end up saying slightly odd stuff because they’re loopy with exhaustion.

  13. Blue says:

    ‘kay she is really getting on my last nerve. I mean I can feel her desperation and it makes me embarassed for her.

  14. Hm says:

    She’s so fucking insincere and annoying. Her desperation leaks out of her performances – like she wants you to soothe her delicate nerves but also tell her she’s the greatest actress around, when she NEVER disappears fully into the role – it’s needy, like-me-best Anne Hathaway every time.

    I agree with those upthread that she’s latched onto veganism for weight control and attention. My brother’s been a vegan for 20 years, since he was a teen, and he and the other vegans I know simply don’t talk about it as she does. Even new vegans don’t seem, to me, to blather as she does.

    Ima guess she has very few, if any, true girlfriends. I’m sensing a ton of competitive bullshit from this one. She seems like a *nightmare.*

  15. Sam says:

    Anne, please. I was vegan for a while. Guess what? I had periods where I ate like a pig. Once I found a vegan cheese I liked, I put that shit on everything I ate. I gained weight as a vegan. You ate four pieces of pizza and half a bottle of wine? Honey, you need to hang out with real eaters. I personally know a few who could out that whole pie away.

    I hate people who use an ethical diet like veganism/vegetarianism as a way to control their weight. It is not, and never has been, a weight-loss diet. Its an ethical diet at its core. Sure, it has health benefits, but they are generally secondary.

    She’ll be off the diet in a year and doing interviews about how she couldn;t sustain it because it made her “tired.” Its only a matter of time.

    • Mira says:

      + 1000. I’ve grown up as a vegetarian. I’ve gained and lost and gained weight as a vegetarian. I’m always surprised when people ask me about my health and “protein” intake even as they can see that I’m perfectly fine – fit and healthy. These days I just ignore the lack of animal protein questions. It’s tiring.

      Veganism/vegetarianism is a diet in itself, not a weight-loss formula. And yes, four slices of pizza is not pigging out. I find celebrity diets and food choices funny. Someone said they ate a full bowl of pasta after shooting for a film. I rolled my eyes. If eating a bowl of pasta or four slices of pizza is pigging out, I wonder what their everyday diet is. Four lettuce leafs perhaps.

      PS: She ruined TDKR for me.

  16. silver says:

    sorry but the more I hear about her, the less I like her. she’s now more annoying than Natalie Portman. so insufferable.

  17. Red32 says:

    I’m pretty sure when you pick up a prescription, it doesn’t say “painkillers because she fell off a bike! Haha!” on the label, so maybe her bf shouldn’t have given the pharmacist details.

  18. ramona says:

    Ugh. Cannot stand her. Hated her as Catwoman. Her voice is not strong enough to play Fantine. So you starved yourself for a month, big whoop. Starving yourself doesn’t make you a great actress, it makes you great at starving yourself.

    Please go away.

    P.S. Vegans CAN go hog-wild. I used to cook for a vegan and you can still rock the freak out without meat or dairy. Stop talking.

    • pinns says:


      Hello – chips (french fries) are completely vegan!! And, come to think of it, so are crisps (chips)! Not healthy but definitely vegan.

      And my vegan friend always eats pizzas, he just gets it made without cheese.

      Girl just likes her new skinny. Shame, because I much prefer her Catwoman curves.

  19. lylaooo says:

    im soo jealous of her hairr…it looks amazingg

  20. lisa2 says:

    I think her hiding or saying she hid the broken arm silly. Implying she had to do it for the “character”. Catwoman is not real.

    I remember a couple of years ago when she did the Oscar Round table. Maybe 2009. She and the others were asked if they Google themselves. Most of the actors said no. They didn’t. Anne said she did all the time. I think this is just the way of actresses and actors in their 20′s and such. They read everything written about them. They tweet follow all the info and it makes them affected. They adjust or bend to the perceptions of themselves by fans an the media.

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with her wanting an Oscar. but many talented actors/actresses don’t have them and they are still very successful.

    she reminds me of someone I don’t like.

    • Sweet Dee says:

      LOL that bit about googling herself is hilarious.

      I just imagined her coming onto Celebitchy where the bloggers kind of root for her and then scrolling down to the comments for the first time and “GASP! Ohh the horror! Poor Anne Hathaway! Woe is me!” and other overly dramatic phrases in the third person.

  21. Dani says:

    She has become insufferable. I think the last movie I liked her in was Devil Wears Prada.

  22. Anna00 says:

    Can they give her the Oscar two months earlier?

  23. RobN says:

    It’s amazing how many actresses I like right up until they can’t shut up.

  24. HotPockets says:

    I don’t feel bad for Anne or any girl who “accidentally” flashes her hoo-ha to the paps because it could have been easily avoided by putting on some damn panties. Seriously, put your undies on and you don’t have to start a new campaign about the pain you feel from showing your vag. The paps did not invade your privacy, you allowed it to happen, so own up to it Anne.

  25. ruby says:

    I used to like her but lately she’s been getting on my nerves. She’s just too sickly sweet and oatmeal and bleh. There’s no spark, no charisma there. I don’t know. She’s bugging me at the moment.

  26. erika says:

    yeah, she…she’s gettin’ on my nerves.

    She always reminds me of high school/drama-rama, trust me, I was ‘one of them’ so I know. But…NEVER as bad as Anne. She has that combo of Honor Roll/Good Girl/Too Smart to Fart/Shakespeare Drama…

    on UGH on Chelsea my God…she was sharing some antedoctal (sp?) stories and she was just campy, drama, ‘Jazz hands! jazz hands!’ big funny faces while she told some…#*$&@) story…

    she is trying WAY too hard for something.

  27. Diana says:

    This is the perfect example on why I hate Oscar campaingning. Theses actors become so annoying and they’re everywhere! you just can’t escape the asinine comments.

  28. Genevieve says:

    And now I totally love her.

  29. skuddles says:

    Maybe this headline should read “Hathaway has gone completely vag” lol

  30. cc says:

    I can’t stand her, but yay for this move of hers.

  31. Luxe says:

    Lamest of all the Catwomans (Halle’s doesn’t count).

    Following the Natalie Portman Campaign model I see. Yes, I know others do it, but I remember Natalie’s sucking up like it was yesterday. All the shameless campaigning is another reason why awards are a joke.

    I really hope there’s a darkhorse that comes on Oscar night. If you’re trying this hard, you might not deserve to win, Anne.

  32. Peter Müller says:

    I already regret having wasted my time with this badly written article.. the author must be a complete journalistic dilettante or he is just one of the goons payed by the fur and meat gangsters…

    As has been scientifically shown (read the “China Study”) it is the omnivores which need to be concerned about osteoporosis and most of the other fancy illnesses all those meat/dairy fattend people will waste our medicare on.

    Both thumbs up for Anne Hathaway! She’s made the right choice. GO VEGEAN!
