Zach Galifianakis, is that you? The funny man stepped out to attend the premiere of ‘Birdman’ on Oct. 13, looking 50 pounds lighter — and very sexy! See his dramatic transformation.
Zach Galifianakis, 45, debuted a much slimmer figure at the premiere of his new comedy flick, Birdman. It seems he’s come a long way since his Hangover days, and we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw him as a leading man in a romantic comedy sometime soon!
Zach Galifianakis Weight Loss: Drops 50 Pounds Looks like a New Man
Zach showed off his new look in a grey suit with a baby blue shirt tucked underneath, along with a navy blue tie. While he’s still sporting his typical scruffy look, a full-on beard and curly locks, his significant loss of weight makes him look like a new man! Zach appears to be 50 pounds lighter. He lost a ton of weight, especially around his face.
Even though Zach is a funny guy, he’s not a fan of being in the spotlight! He told the Hollywood Reporter, “It’s confusing to me – all of this is confusing to me. They oversell it like we’re curing cancer, you know what I mean? I just think it can be gross sometimes, the way Hollywood congratulates itself all the time.”
Zach went on to say that being a celebrity is a “man-made” thing. He loves to act, but dislikes being a celebrity. This would probably explain why this was the first public event he attended in a year! And we’re glad he chose this event to debut his slimmer body.
‘Birdman’ Trailer: Emma Stone & Michael Keaton Star — Hits Theaters October 17
Birdman is a black comedy, which has an interesting story and an amazing cast. Between Emma Stone, Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, and Zach himself, this is the perfect cast for pulling off dark comedy.
The film tells the story of a once famous actor (Michael), who struggles to get his acting career back on track while performing in a Broadway play. Zach will be the play’s producer, so we can expect tons of great moments between him and Michael, as well as the rest of the cast too!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will you be seeing Birdman in theaters? And, do you think Zach looks sexier now that he’s lost 50 pounds?
