“Hangover” star Zach Galifianakis has been out of the public eye for about a year now, but was spotted at the New York Film Festival on Sunday evening looking very slim!
During the press conference for “Birdman”, the comedic actor explained why he had been out of the spotlight.
At a press conference for the film, Zach said he liked acting but wanted no part of the celebrity stuff.
He said, “Being a celebrity is sh*t — it’s dumb, and I’m not interested in it. I like to be an actor, and that’s it. The blurred lines are, I think, man-made. I think celebrity is a man-made thing; it’s not innate in us…I’d rather just do my work and go home and watch Lifetime.”
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 45-year-old added, “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.”
We love Galifianakis at any size, but he does look so different. Looks great!
He was asked about his weight loss, jokingly replying, “I’m dying,” before claiming his suit jacket was a “ladies [size] 50.”
Galifianakis explained that he stopped drinking, saying, “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.”
