had to pad out her costume for her role as children's author Beatrix Potter because she couldn't put on enough weight. The 37-year-old famously piled on the pounds for her role in Bridget Jones's Diary
, but she struggled to eat regular meals while on the new movie's set because digesting food saps her creative energies.
She says, "I had to wear padding underneath my dress to fill the corsets for Miss Potter
. I'm really boring about diet. I have egg whites for breakfast. I try to eat lunch to keep me going but, if I do, I have a hard time gearing up again. It's like waking up twice in a day. I don't like stopping and would rather plow through."
