Going on a strict cleanse before shooting Les Mis, the Academy Award-nominated actress lost 10 lbs. Then, living off of two thin squares of dried oatmeal paste per day, she lost another 15 lbs. in two weeks.

From the sound of it, the actress and former Oscar host, 29, boasts an impressive set of pipes, and the number, which has been known to bring a tear to theater audiences, sounds as haunting as ever.

Hathaway costars in the musical epic alongside Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Colm Wilkinson and others.

On Tuesday, wearing a cat-print skirt, Swift visited the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, where she also communed with the fauna in the Serpentine River. Standing under a brown umbrella in the rain, Swift snapped cell phone photos of the swans and ducks in the water.
