The actress flaunts her new bod at Fashion Week and says she's dropped a whopping 10 dress sizes since Dancing with the Stars
After battling her weight for years, Kirstie Alley has declared a dramatic victory! The 60-year-old comedy star unveiled a very slim new figure while walking the catwalk on Tuesday for designer Zang Toi's Fashion Week show. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Alley reveals that she's lost no fewer than 100 pounds.
"(I've lost) 10 dress sizes since Dancing with the Stars," boasts Alley, who won second place last season. "I feel like I'm back in my element and not wearing a suit, a bad suit. And I honestly didn't even realize what I looked like."
The onetime Cheers star took her weight struggle public with her 2005 TV comedy Fat Actress, then showed off her subsequent weight loss as a Jenny Craig spokesmodel. After leaving the company in 2007, she went up to what she called her "highest weight ever," nearly 230 pounds. She credits her latest slim-down to her own diet supplement company, Organic Liason -- though we'd imagine all that dancing didn't hurt! She says that her current size is the goal she'd dreamed about from the start.
"Right before I did Dancing with the Stars, I bought these dresses in size 14 to 4. The same dress," she explains. "And I said, you know what I really want? I really want to be in this dress in a 4."
So now Kirstie's body looks the way she wants -- but at age 60, is she looking to boost her youthfulness with cosmetic surgery?
"I haven't had plastic surgery but here's the reason: People do plastic surgery to make you look younger," says the actress. "I don't think it makes you look younger. I think it can make you look weirder."
Alley is certainly relishing her new look -- she's even referring to her runway walk as her "Cinderella moment" on Twitter! But she's content to live happily ever after without a handsome prince.
"I think it's fun to hook up every night for six months. Then I think it's time to move on," says Alley sincerely. "Like, 'Dude, you're out.'"
