Zoe Kravitz basically ate dirt to lose weight in preparation to play a girl struggling with anorexia and bulimia.
The Divergent star told Us Weekly that she went on a pretty extreme diet and exercise regimen while getting ready for her challenging role as Marie in The Road Within. Zoe’s already a very thin woman, but she had to drop another 20 pounds before filming.
“I did a cleanse,” Zoe said. “I tried to do it the healthiest way as possible, even though it’s not healthy to do.”
She added, explaining, “I ended up drinking clay because it cleans out your body and fills you up. I was eating like a Mason jar of pureed vegetables a day and running.”
