You tell 'em, Anne!

While being an actress might seem like a glitzy, glamorous affair, there are a lot of late nights, early mornings and big asks. Add to that the pressure of having to look a certain way to even land a role, and you're facing dyeing, cutting or changing your hair, altering your body, accent, undertaking special training, learning new languages and everything else at the drop of a hat - because your livelihood depends on it.

Many celebs have undergone insane body transformations. Mila Kunis had to lose weight for her role in Black Swan and ended up weighing 95lbs during the film. Renée Zellweger's weight changed dramatically for her roles in the Bridget Jones films. And, of course, Christian Bale is forever changing his body, most notably for his roles in The Machinist, The Dark Knight, American Hustle, and the upcoming Backseat.

Anne Hathaway is the latest star to undergo a body transformation for an upcoming role. She took to Instagram with an amazing workout video, telling her fans that she's gaining weight.

She wrote:

"I am gaining weight for a movie role and it is going well. To all the people who are going to fat shame me in the upcoming months, it’s not me, it’s you. Peace xx

"PS- I wanted to set this to Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” but copyright said no. Continued peace xx"

It's a sad world when someone has to defend their changing body to stop others having the first say, but we're loving Anne's sassy take on it.

Fans were loving her stance, too. One wrote, "Weight gain or not, you have always been and will continue to be a beautifully amazing individual with a heart of gold. Be who you are always and never let anyone or anything make you feel any less or different."

While others said, "Yes! Go Anne, go!" and "Girl no shame in this at all".

We think you look fabulous, Anne.
