Kim Kardashian defends Met Gala weight loss, compares herself to Christian Bale

Kim Kardashian defended her decision to drop 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into her Met Gala gown earlier this year. In an interview with the New York Times, the reality star compared herself to movie stars Christian Bale and Renee Zellweger. Throughout his career, Christian, 48, has been known to gain and lose a significant amount of weight for film roles.

Most notably, for his role in 2005’s The Machinist, he lost more than 50 pounds in four months after gaining weight for American Psycho. While filming, the actor said he lived on a diet of black coffee, one apple, and one tin of tuna per day. He was consuming less at the time.

Renee, 53, gained 30 pounds to play the titular character in the 2001 romantic comedy Bridget Jones’ Diary. Kim wore the iconic Bob Mackie gown that Marilyn Monroe wore when she sang “Happy Birthday” to former President John F. Kennedy in 1962 to the 2022 Met Gala.

She discovered three weeks before the Met Gala that she couldn’t fit into the Marilyn Monroe gown she planned to wear to the high-profile event. She started working out twice a day in a sauna suit and cut out all sugars and carbs.

However, the reality star was concerned that she would not be able to fit into the gown. In fact, she stated that if she hadn’t lost enough weight to fit into the gown, she would have skipped the Met Gala entirely.

“I simply couldn’t go, which wouldn’t have mattered,” she explained. “It was simply important to me to achieve that goal.”

“I didn’t starve myself, but I was extremely strict,” she admitted to Vogue. Kim began to face backlash on social media after making the confession.

“I didn’t do anything unhealthy.

“To me, it was like, ‘OK, Christian Bale can do it for a movie role and that is acceptable.’ Even Renee Zellweger gained weight for a role. It’s all the same to me.

“I wasn’t saying, ‘Hey everyone, why don’t you go lose weight in a short period of time?’”
