Kim Kardashian says she has too much Botox for serious acting career, refuses to gain weight for role

Kim Kardashian is ready to take the acting world by storm — but she refuses to change her appearance to do so.

The reality TV star admitted in Thursday’s episode of “The Kardashians” that she was “not expecting this career turn” to actress.

Kardashian shared that she met with different studios to pitch her comedy film, “The Fifth Wheel,” which she described as a mix of “The Hangover,” “Bridesmaids” and “The First Wives Club.”

In addition to producing, the Skims founder will star in the Paula Pell- and Janine Brito- written film, which she acknowledged will be quite the commitment.

With so much on her plate, Kardashian, 43, joked she will “have to give up” something in her life — and immediately chose “sleep” as the thing to go.

“I can do a movie a year; I’ve got about 10 years where I still look good, so that’s all I’ve got in me and then I’ll take some time off. … That’s my 10-year plan,” she told her friends.

However, the beauty mogul’s looks are off the table.

“I feel like you need less Botox for more emotion, and I don’t have it,” she joked, noting that the injectable would prohibit her from “cry[ing]” or acting “scared out of [her] mind” on screen.

To prove her point, Kardashian jokingly tried to raise her eyebrows, which did little to her forehead.

Fans also shouldn’t expect the Hulu personality to lean into method acting for a role anytime soon.

“I’m not gonna be gaining 500 pounds for a role or losing … that’s not where I need to be,” she said.

Although she has a few non-negotiables in mind, Kardashian told her pals that she doesn’t want to “get ahead” of herself and is focused on perfecting the upcoming Netflix flick.

“I’m really nervous about it ’cause I have to f–king deliver,” she said. “It’s such a challenge for me, and I want to welcome a challenge, and I’m like, every year I want to do something that makes me so uncomfortable that I really have to challenge myself.”

Despite having only a few small movie roles in the past, Kardashian made headlines in 2023 when she landed a role in “American Horror Story: Delicate.”

While her role as an entertainment publicist named Siobhan received praise and criticism alike, the Skkn founder hired an acting coach and has delved deeper into the business ever since.

During a recent — and controversial — “Actors on Actors” interview with Chloë Sevigny, Kardashian revealed she has four projects currently in the works.

“It’s been fascinating, learning the business in such a short period,” she said.

One of those projects is a Ryan Murphy-produced scripted series in which she will play “a high-powered divorce attorney.”

“I will be channeling Laura Wasser, if that resonates with anybody,” Kardashian teased. (Wasser has represented Kardashian, Kevin Costner, Ariana Grande, Britney Spears and a slew of other stars in their splits.)

While Kardashian admitted that “lawyer talk is a completely different language,” she has already put in plenty of hours while studying for the California Bar Exam over the years.

“I’m really excited about it. And, again, that confidence that [Murphy] believes in me to take this project on means so much to me,” she said. “And it feels so right as a character that I could be a lawyer in real life and play one on TV.”
