Actress Brooke Shields barely ate during the gruelling Broadway run of the hit musical Chicago, causing her weight to drop drastically .

In addition to the punishing dance routines, the 40-year-old former model admits she simply had "no time to eat". She jokingly refers to it as the "Broadway Diet".

She says, "You do eight shows a week and basically eat one meal a day.

"You're famished at night after the show, but you're worried about your voice. If you go right to sleep you get reflux which burns your vocal cords.

"You dance for three and a half hours and you're moving constantly, but you go to bed hungry."
