Shailene Woodley, Emma Stone & More Celebs Who Gained or Lost Weight for a Film Role — And How They Did It

People Logo People | Slide 1 of 12: For her role in Adrift, a film based on a true story of an engaged couple — played by Woodley and Sam Claflin — who were lost at sea for 41 days, the actress consumed 350 calories per day to mimic the appearance of the real-life woman she was portraying, Tami Oldham Ashcraft. "We were working extremely long hours out on the open sea. Sam and I were losing quite a bit of weight as we weren't eating much," she told The New Paper in May 2018. "So not having the fuel to run you physically, along with the emotional complexities that were incredibly taxing at times, mixed with the physicality, it could have been a grueling experience."
