John Goodman shows off drastic 90kg weight loss

John Goodman has showed off his dramatic 90kg weight-loss at an exclusive event in Los Angeles. 

The 69-year-old actor attended TUBI's The Freak Brothers experience, an interactive event based on The Freak Brothers TV, along with his co-stars. 

John, who voiced Fat Freddy Freekwoski in the show, previously tipped the scales at over 180kg, and has lost over half his body weight in recent years. 

In a past interview with ABC, John said, "In the old days, I would take three months out, lose 60 or 70 pounds, and then reward myself with a six-pack or whatever and just go back to my old habits."

"This time I wanted to do it slowly. Move, exercise. I'm getting to the age where I can't afford to sit still anymore."

As part of his lifestyle overhaul, Goodman gave up alcohol, telling AARP, "It was basically just portion control and 'I don’t need it.' I was just shoving everything into my mouth."

With the help of his personal trainer Mackie Shilstone, John revealed that his motivation to lose weight simply came down to enjoying life. 

He said, "You look in the mirror everyday and go, 'I gotta deal with this the rest of the day, I gotta deal with this schmuck?'."

"It takes a lot of creative energy to sit on your ass and figure out what you’re going to eat next … I wanted to live life better."
