Kim Cattrall has confessed that she loved gaining weight for the title role in Meet Monica Velour.
The AP reports that the Sex and the City actress put on 20lbs for the part of a former porn star who develops an unlikely friendship with one of her biggest fans, an experience which she relished after years of dieting.
"It was actually kind of a relief. It was like getting rid of the Barbie doll and throwing it out and starting again," she told reporters.
"We were shooting in Detroit, and there's a lot of great bars in Detroit. So I ate and I drank for about six weeks."
Meet Monica Velour opens in the US on April 8.
Cattrall previously admitted that she struggles to continue dieting to maintain her figure as she gets older.
