Zach Galifianakis Reveals Key To His Huge Weight Loss


Zach Galifianakis seemed to turn a few heads at last night’s Emmys for all the right reasons.

No he wasn’t carrying a baby, or adopting the rude reserve of his character in Between Two Ferns, he was just looking… slimmer.

Shallow, I know and who cares what Zach looked like during the Hangover days but still, the guy’s looking good.


Following on from playing Alan in the comedy trilogy, the actor lost over 50 pounds upon starring in Birdman in 2014.

He’s managed to more or less maintain his weight ever since and his secret…Cutting out booze.

Yep, sorry to break the news – Galifianakis shed the weight by turning down the cold ones we feel inclined to indulge at the weekend (and weekdays).


You can next see Zach in The Happy Medium, an adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time beside Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine.

It’s due out 9 March, 2018.
