Kim Kardashian bashed for comparing herself to A-List actor who lost major weight for film role to defend Met Gala dress

KIM Kardashian has been slammed after she compared her efforts to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s $5m dress to an A-List actor who lost a drastic amount of weight for a movie role.

The reality star tried to defend losing 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into the legendary dress.

In an interview with The New York Times, 41-year-old Kim addressed the controversy surrounding her significant weight loss.

She said: “To me it was like, ‘OK, Christian Bale can do it for a movie role and that is acceptable.’”

48-year-old Christian is known for his dedicated body transformations.

He famously lost 62 pounds for his role as the emaciated Trevor Reznik in The Machinist.

Kim also compared another Hollywood transformation to her own, adding: “Even Renée Zellweger gained weight for a role. It’s all the same to me.”

Oscar-winner Renée, 53, gained 30 pounds and wore a fat suit for her role in The Thing About Pam.

But fans were not happy with Kim’s latest defence.

One user shared the interview to a Reddit thread for KUWTK-fanatics and wrote: ‘Kimberly it's time to take a break from the interview babes…”

Another sarcastically snarked: “The fact she compared herself to Bale and other actors gaining or losing weight for their JOB is amazing”

Kim claims “I didn’t do anything unhealthy”, although she ran twice a day, wore a sauna suit, and shed the pounds at a considerably faster rate than the CDC would recommend to someone looking to lose weight.


The mom-of-four famously squeezed into her Marilyn-inspired look at the Met Gala, which took place last month.

At first, the $5m dress didn’t fit the mom of four’s signature curves, but she was determined to pull it off.

In an interview with Vogue at the prestigious bash, she revealed: “It was such a challenge. It was like a [movie] role. 

“I was determined to fit [into] it. I haven't had carbs or sugar in about three weeks.”


Kim received backlash following the event, with Riverdale star Lili Reinhart calling Kim “stupid” for “starving” herself.

She called the Hulu star’s interview comments about the weight loss “so wrong”.
