Photos: Comedian Ricky Gervais Loses 20 Pounds

| by I Need My Fix

Ricky Gervais is looking mighty fine these days. He and his gorgeous longtime girlfriend, Jane Fallon, have been shedding the pounds together, and I must say that Ricky has never looked this good.

He talked with People about the new changes:

“I lost 20, 22 lbs.  It wasn’t so much about the weight. It was more that I was a fat, lazy, out of shape slob, to be honest.”

I’ve never thought of Ricky Gervais as a fat slob... that accent is delicious!  So how did he lose the weight anyhow? Jogging… and skipping an unneeded meal,

“I didn’t eat differently. I probably just stopped having that second meal at 11:30 at night.”

Jane knows that this whole weight loss thing has been a definite team effort:

“I think it is because I was trying to lose weight as well.  So I was cooking healthier versions of what we were eating. He didn’t realize that I was probably feeding him less calories at the same time he was running. I lost about 18 lbs. I tend to run about three or four miles, and he does the same. “

They both look amazing. Very happy for them and the fact that they’ve been together for 25 years! Ricky does have one downside to this slimmer figure:

“Now I’ve got to stop making jokes about fat people, which is annoying.  When I was fat, it was okay.”

It’s all good, Ricky.  You are hilarious no matter what, and now you are just that much more appetizing to look at. We all win!
