Kim Kardashian Defends Her 2022 Met Gala Weight Loss

Kim Kardashian's confession previously received backlash, but her personal trainer explained that she lost the weight in a 'healthy way.'

Kim Kardashian lost 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s gown for the 2022 Met Gala, and recently, she doubled down on her controversial decision. In a recent interview with the Newyork Times, the reality star confessed, 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.”

The Kardashians star was referring to the extreme diets that Bale infamously went on for his roles in movies including, 2004’s The Machinist and 2013’s American Hustle, which saw him lose 62 pounds and gain 43 pounds, respectively. Kim then explained to the outlet, “I wasn’t saying, ‘Hey everyone, why don’t you go lose this weight in a short period of time?'” Kardashian then insisted that she ‘didn’t do anything unhealthy’ to fit into Monroe’s iconic dress.

However, on asked what would happen if she did not lose the weight, Kim said, “I just simply couldn’t have gone, which wouldn’t have mattered. It was just important to me to reach that goal.” Kim Kardashian’s confession previously received backlash, but her personal trainer explained that she lost the weight in a ‘healthy way.’ “I think one of the misconceptions is that she works really hard. I was there through the process, and it wasn’t like a starving yourself type of thing,” Don Brooks, aka Don-A-Matrix, told TMZ shortly after the Met Gala in May.

Kim Kardashian’s personal trainer went on to say, “She’s been on a real balanced diet, and at times she wouldn’t eat as much, but then the second thing was she went to the gym and put the work in.” In videos shared by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Orlando, Fla., which lent Kardashian the dress, she was seen struggling to get the gown over her derriére in a final fitting.

Kim Kardashian wore Marilyn Monroe’s dress, but she apparently could not zip it up all the way, so she wore a white vintage fur coat to cover that area on the red carpet. The reality star changed into a replica later in the evening. Following the fashion’s biggest event, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum treated herself to pizza and doughnuts in her own version of an afterparty.
