At Least Cameron Diaz’s Met Gala Dress Didn’t Weigh the Full 30 Pounds

Cameron Diaz stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday and the host held up a photograph of the actress’s Costume Institute Gala attire. She remarked, “That was a 22-pound dress … it was heavy,” to which Jimmy responded, “So, combined weight was about 44 pounds.” Oh Jimmy, you slay us. Cameron went on, “It was rhinestones, all of those are, like, rhinestones … just strips and strips of rhinestones, and Stella [McCartney] and I had talked about what we wanted to do, we went back and forth about the design of it … But she said, Let’s do embroidery, and I was like, Okay. And she sends me this e-mail on Friday, like, Babe, your dress might be a little heavy, and I put it on on Saturday for the last alteration and it’s 30 pounds! We managed to cut eight pounds out of that dress.”
