Kardashian reportedly went hands-on with the film’s launch and even attended every meeting to make herself look good.
The Skims founder’s business skills seem to have rubbed off on Hollywood, with multiple studios wanting to do business with her.

Although she has extensive experience as a reality star, Kardashian, 43, doesn’t have much experience in the scripted world.
She recently starred in the horror series American Horror Story, a role that won her both praise and criticism from viewers.
Actresses Patti LuPone and Sharon Stone spoke out against the casting at the time, with the Broadway legend telling Andy Cohen that Kardashian was “taking away from the actors.”
