Was that really Zach Galifianakis at the SAG Awards?! He helped open the show and we literally did not recognize him — he has lost SO much weight!
Zach Galifianakis, 45, has been slowly shedding the pounds for months now. But before the SAG Awards, he shaved his infamous beard and pulled his hair back, which made him look like a completely different person — did you recognize him?
Zach Galifianakis Weight Loss At The SAG Awards
During the introductory montage at the SAG Awards on Jan. 25, the cameras panned to Zach and he asked ” I am Zach Galifianakis and I am an actor?”
The line would have been funnier if we weren’t busy asking ourselves, “Wait, that’s Zach Galifianakis?!”
Rocking the man-bun trend, Zach pulled his hair back and showed off his thinner, clean-shaven face.
We think he looked absolutely great — AND he walked away a winner! Zach took home the SAG award for Best Ensemble Cast for his film, Birdman.
Zach Galifianakis Weight Loss: Drops 50 Pounds Looks like a New Man
We first noticed Zach’s weight loss back in October at the premiere of Birdman. At the time, he was still sporting his typical scruffy look, a full-on beard and curly locks.
But it was in May of 2013 when he first opened up about why he decided to shed some lbs.
He told Conan O’Brien, “I stopped drinking and I just kind of put the weight off…I was having a lot of vodka with sausage…delicious but bad for you.”
He added, “I was getting into too much trouble with the drinking, so I just kind of stopped.”
