Want what they’re having? Celebrities have been known to go to drastic lengths to prepare for a role, but Zöe Kravitz swapped her diet for another animal’s ahead of filming The Batman.
“I did [study cats], I did [drink milk out of a bowl],” the High Fidelity star confessed during a March 2022 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon when asked about how she got ready to play Catwoman in the film. “I’m method, dude!”
Kravitz’ pre-film diet was a lot more fun than other stars have gone through in order to get ready for a role. For his 2013 film, Jobs, Ashton Kutcher recreated Steve Jobs’ strict “fruitarian” diet. “This is the craziest thing,” the That 70s Show alum said during a September 2019 appearance on Hot Ones. “I was just studying his eating habits and his behaviors and heard that [Jobs] drank a lot of carrot juice.”
After noticing that the late Apple founder had an “orange tinge” to his skin, Kutcher decided to try it for himself in order to accurately portray the character. “I started just drinking carrot juice, like, nonstop, like, all day long. Two weeks before we went to start shooting, I had this pain in my back,” he recalled. “I ended up in the hospital … because my pancreas was crazy out of whack.”
He concluded: “So, don’t drink too much carrot juice. That’s the moral of the story.”
Stars have been known to try surprising eating plans off screen to make a major lifestyle change. “I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year and a half, [so] I’m willing to try different things,” Heidi Montag said in March 2022, revealing that she had started a “carnivore” diet and eats lots of raw meat. “It’s a great source of nutrients! I have felt incredible on this diet. A lot more energy, clarity, increased libido and overall improvement on chronic pain I have had.”
The Hills alum continued: “When you think about where the most nutrients are that are bio available to humans without toxins, organs are very nutritious parts of animals. Culturally organs are a critical part. Eating raw liver is going to preserve as many nutrients as possible.”
Another celebrity drawn to meat is Kim Kardashian, who confessed during the premiere episode of The Kardashians on Hulu in April 2022 that she sometimes breaks her plant-based diet for chicken fingers and Mac and cheese. “I’m vegan most of the time,” she explained. “Like, 98 percent of the time. But today I’m going wild.”
