“I became a raw vegan”


In “WeCrashed,” Hathaway plays Rebekah Neumann, the wife of WeWork founder Adam Neumann. The businesswoman is known for sticking to a vegan diet; a lifestyle that Hathaway tried to emulate for the role. She avoided all animal-based meals and only ate foods that were raw or prepared at temperatures below 40°C.

Referencing her vegan diet, the 39-year-old told Colbert, “I went vegan. She further explained that Rebekah’s lifestyle influenced her decision to go the meatless route.

“Rebekah is a very passionate vegan.” “I think I’m vegan now,” she said. “Like, ‘I think this is it…I know I’ve done this before, and I know it’s never stuck, but I think this is the time I do it.”

Unfortunately, Hathaway’s decision to go completely vegan was short-lived. Just a few weeks after filming, she started craving meat again and went off the diet.

Throughout the time it took to produce the film, Hathaway did her best to follow the vegan diet. She told Colbert that her husband, Adam Shulman, supported her choice at the time, even joining her on some occasions for vegan meals.

And when Hathaway decided she was quitting the diet, Shulman didn’t bat an eyelid, just going with the flow.

“Three weeks later, as I was thinking ‘I need a burger,’ the actress recalled a conversation with her husband.
“He was like ‘OK,'” Hathaway added.

Now Hathaway is completely back to eating meat, even enjoying venison during her recent trip to Texas this past weekend.

Hathaway has dabbled in the vegan lifestyle in the past. She became a vegan before her debut as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises” in 2012. While preparing for the role, Hathaway’s diet consisted of whole grains to control blood sugar, avocados, almonds , sesame seeds, dark chocolate, antioxidant-rich bright red and orange vegetables, dark leafy greens, ginger and turmeric.

The actress has also incorporated plenty of seitan and tempeh (plant-based meat alternatives) into her diets. This helped maintain his protein levels throughout intense workouts to accommodate the feline antihero’s physique.

She maintained her vegan diet until 2014. At the time, Hathaway was filming “Interstellar” in an area of ​​Iceland and ended her vegan run by accompanying an adventurous co-star to a restaurant in Reykjavík to eat fish.

Comparing Hathaway’s vegan past with the recent one, it’s clear that the former had a longer stretch. While chatting with Colbert, the actress defended her decision not to spend more time immersing herself in her character’s lifestyle, citing her two boys as the reason.

“Let me explain. My kids love me, and I’m sure on some level I care about what I do, but I also just want their mom, so,” she said.

Although Hathaway has given up the vegan diet, she still practices yoga, another skill she learned for the role. The actress’ feature film ‘WeCrashed’ will help tell the story of WeWork’s growth from a single shared office space to a global brand worth $47 billion and its subsequent stock crash due to several scandals and missed opportunities.
