Zach Galifianakis Shed A Lot Of Weight; Talks Fame

Zach Galifianakis Shed A Lot Of Weight; Talks Fame

Zach Galifianakis crept out of the wood work to promote his new movie “Birdman” and boy, has he lost a lot of weight. He looks good, doesn’t he? I wouldn’t say that he was obese before, but he is definitely slim now and looking fantastic.

While promoting his new movie, he talked to the “Hollywood Reporter” about being a celebrity.

“Being a celebrity is sh-t — it’s dumb and I’m not interested in it,” said Zach Galifianakis, noting that he’s not a fan of all the “picture-taking” and that the cast generally feels the same way. “I like to be an actor, and that’s it. The blurred lines are, I think manmade. I think celebrity is a manmade thing, it’s not innate in us, we have people telling us, ‘We should pay attention to these people,” for all the wrong reasons, their personal lives and whatnot. … I’d rather just do my work and go home and watch Lifetime.”

He was later asked for some clarification and here’s what he said:

“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?” he told The Hollywood Reporter at the New York Film Festival’s closing-night premiere on Saturday, held at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. “I just think it can be gross sometimes, the way Hollywood congratulates itself all the time.”

“I agree with what this movie says. I read it, and I’m like, ‘Boy, he’s taking swipes at everybody, but he’s right.’ So the truth trumps everything else,” he said of the Alejandro G. Inarritu dramedy. “It’s gotten a little out of hand — there’s no culture in it. If people were writing about poets, mathematicians and all that, that would just move us forward quicker.”

I get what he means, but if we were writing about poets and mathematicians, we certainly wouldn’t be covering his new movie. Wouldn’t that actually be detrimental to his career?

Bradley Cooper Saves Obamacare

The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals C

Who has seen the episode of Zach Galifianakis’ Funny or Die series, ‘Between Two Ferns’ – where he interviews Obama?  It’s pretty funny.  Everything Galifianakis does is hilarious in my own personal opinion.  If you haven’t seen it- you have probably at least heard the fallout with Fox News – which failed to see the point or the humor in any of it.  Of course.

Anyway- apparently the whole thing came to fruition, partly due to Bradley Cooper’s involvement.  The Huffington Post reports:

 Cooper and Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s senior advisor, met on Feb. 11 to “brainstorm ideas about how to help get the word out on Obamacare.” While Funny or Die had come up before — perhaps as early as July of 2013 — it was Cooper who apparently sparked a renewed push for “Between Two Ferns,” and he went so far as to call Galifianakis from the White House.

The report continues:

Funny enough, Obama went out of his way to praise Cooper during his appearance on “Between Two Ferns,” a bit of in-sketch ribbing that got under Galifianakis’ skin.

“Being like that in Hollywood, that’s easy!” Galifianakis told Obama after the president complimented Cooper’s looks and talent. “Tall and handsome, that’s easy! Be short, fat and smell like Doritos and try to make it in Hollywood.”

As U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said in an interview with HuffPost Live on Monday, Galifianakis’ “Between Two Ferns” episode provided the administration with a “bump” following its debut. “The website traffic surged once the ‘Between Two Ferns’ interview went on,” Sebelius said. “But more importantly, what we’re trying to do is reach people in the language that they most understand. Certainly Zach reaches a certain audience.”

Zach Galifianakis looks almost unrecognizable without his beard!

Zach Galifianakis, 43, looks like a completely different person without his trademark beard! The actor, who plays Alan Garner in The Hangover trilogy, showed up at the Paris premiere of the new movie with just a goatee!

Wonder if he shaved it for a new movie?

Pictures of everyone after the jump! (more…)
