Pictures of John Goodman's Dramatic Weight Loss

John Goodman Is Looking Better Than Good!

There are a slew of actors that I've come to know as the funny, roly-poly, doughboys of showbiz, such as Drew Carey, Jack Black, and John Goodman. But wait — as you can see from the photo below, Goodman has dropped a significant amount of weight. The almost 58-year-old actor revealed his dramatic weight loss on the red carpet at Thursday's AFI Tribute to Mike Nichols in LA.

The before photo to the left was taken in May 2004 and what a huge difference. In a 1992 interview with Entertainment Weekly, the former Roseanne star who's now starring in HBO's new series Treme, admitted that he was sensitive about his weight. He was constantly trying to take it off although he said, "I lose it, I gain it back. No big deal.'' Well it looks like he got it right. There's no word on exactly how he lost what is estimated to be 100 pounds, but his publicist said it was through "diet and exercise." Nice to see the old standbys of weight loss getting some press. Great work John! It's always inspirational to see someone win over the battle of the bulge.

He looks amazing! Fit, handsome & happy! I've always loved him & was a little worried about him when he got really big. I'm going to show this to my dad as proof that it's never to late to get healthy!

Wow! He looks so wonderful! His hard work is definitely paying off. About two years ago, I remember seeing an interview with him on Craig Ferguson. During the interview, he was sweating profusely and having trouble catching his breath. I actually felt quite worried for him after seeing how much weight he had gained, so it's a relief to see that he has taken the steps necessary to live a healthier life!

I'm not a fan of his - my friends and I were stuck in an airport terminal with him once on Easter Sunday and he was SO RUDE . . . but, I have to admit, he's looking good these days.
