Kim Cattrall's weight gain... & loss!

Every once in a blue moon a Hollywood actress puts her mind to gaining weight, such as Kim Cattrall had to do for her latest role as porn star Monica Velour.

Kim Cattrall's weight gain for her Meet Monica Velour role was a bargaining point between the Sex and the City actress and producers. "They asked me to gain 30 but I didn't want to make myself sick," says the 54-year-old.

"We made a deal saying I would gain 15 lbs before the film and 5 lbs during," continues Kim Cattrall. "But I did enjoy grabbing my stomach and feeling what that extra weight felt like."

Though Kim, who is also a spokesperson for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, may have enjoyed her time on the pleasantly plump side, getting the Meet Monica Velour weight to come off wasn't a cake walk.

"It was painstaking -- exercising a lot and being on the diet and not snacking," Kim added of getting back to her svelte shape. "My appetite did shrink and I did lose the weight."
