Taking to Instagram Stories, the Betty Cooper actress wrote: 'To walk a red carpet and do an interview saying how starving you are because you haven’t eaten carbs in the last month … all to fit in a f***ing dress?'

Kim Kardashian's strict diet

While Lili didn't name any names, her comments did come amid criticism of Kim Kardashian.

She put herself through a strict diet in the lead up to the gala in order to fit into Marilyn Monroe's iconic $5m Happy Birthday Mr. President dress.

Kim told Vogue, 'I always thought [Marilyn] was extremely curvy.'

'I imagined I might be smaller in some places where she was bigger and bigger in places where she was smaller.'

'So when it didn’t fit me I wanted to cry because it can’t be altered at all.'

As a result, Kim put herself on a strict diet in the lead up to the Gala.

She explained, 'I would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on the treadmill, completely cut out all sugar and all carbs, and just eat the cleanest veggies and protein.'

'I didn’t starve myself, but I was so strict.'
