Kim Kardashian received a lot of public criticism after it was revealed that she had to lose sixteen pounds to fit into her gown at this year’s Met Gala. Kardashian famously wore a classic dress once sported by Marilyn Monroe. Kim has been defending her weight loss ever since.

Kardashian’s trainer recently revealed that she did not starve herself to fit into the dress. Diet and a steady exercise routine were enough. Kim was not satisfied with that justification, so she added to it even more.

Speaking with the New York Times, Kim Kardashian compared her weight loss to transforming one’s body for a movie role. Kim compared herself to Christian Bale’s 62-pound slimming for the film “The Machinist.” She also noted that Renée Zellweger once gained weight for a part.

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

Kardashian also argued that she was not trying to encourage people to lose weight in an unhealthy way. She said had she not lost the weight, she just wouldn’t have gone to the Met Gala at all. It was important for her to wear the dress, so she worked hard to do so.

Kim Kardashian ultimately pulled off the iconic look. Whether the critics like it or not, she’s gained a ton of attention for the dress. To Kim, it was all worth it in the end.
