From the set of… Pearl Harbor? Eight years ago? Well, I guess Kate Beckinsale just did an interview with SELF and talked about the stars being forced to lose weight, and her resultant dizziness. And they did it to Ben Affleck, too!
“I remember going to the fitting and trying on a few swimsuits for a scene… I felt fairly triumphant. (The costume designer) literally went grey in the face and said, ‘Do you want me to tell you how long you’ve got before this scene is shot?’ By the time I arrived back at my hotel, I’d been faxed an incredibly rigorous gym schedule and a diet.”
The actress tells America’s Self magazine she tried to stick to the diet until she started feeling faint on set – and then she discovered she wasn’t the only star struggling to get thin. She adds, “Thank God for Ben Affleck! He was so candid about the producers doing the exact same thing to him. “Once I realised it was happening to the boys, too… I was able to put it in perspective.”
Old-timey it may be, but it’s an interesting glimpse into the world of Hollywood and how they treat their stars: of both genders.
