Actors sometimes push the envelope for their roles. Eva Habermann gained 15 kilos for the drama “The True Beauty” (Amazon Prime).
“You should see my character’s depression and excessive drinking. The viewer should recognize that she is bloated and no longer grooms herself,” says the actress to BILD am Sonntag.
“It was also a bit of a self-experiment. What happens if I take away all the attributes that I would otherwise be cast for?”
She had six months to gain 15 kilos. “I just ate everything I wanted to eat,” says Habermann. It took all the longer for her to lose 15 kilos again – almost three years.
“In the end, the only thing that helped me lose weight was eating smaller portions, cutting out things like alcohol and sugar, and severely cutting back on carbs.”
