He says everything he has done was for the red carpet; he assumes movies to change his style of acting much as well to change himself generally also; he regrets for the past, but awaits for the cooler future. World, meet Zach!
Let us see how did his weight change throughout the years? For the initial point the fist “Hangover” was chosen.
1.2009 – the debut release of the new screen-running comedy show, which soon brought him much popularity. The actor had curly, a bit long hair and the beard, which Dailymail was likely to call “messy”.
His weight was quite solid as there were some comments from critics it is not very appropriate for acting.
2. 2010 – it seemed he was continuing to gain extra weigh as it was seen at the premiere of “It’s Kind of a Funny Story”. The traces of overweight were on the face he was trying to hide under the big curly beard, and belly, which was better to be called curvy.
3. 2013 – the year brought many changes. Firstly, the change of his mind condition, when he realized he need the change or even the challenge. As it was reported he like to spend time relaxing with the alcohol, he decided to stop doing it completely.
The next step was physical change, which was demonstrated on the “Hangover3” in May 2013. The things to support were healthy diet and walking a lot. Zach commented that he could not sleep in some periods, that why he did the walking.
The most essential was cutting on alcohol. That’s what he says by his own: “I stopped drinking and I just kind of put the weight off. I was having a lot of vodka with sausage…delicious, but bad for you”.
The actor adds he misses those times he was doing that stuff with friends, but will never come back as he has already stepped on the healthy way of life.
4.2014 – the achievements were introduced to public on the New-York City premiere of the “Birdman”. The actor looked much thinner in a suite wearing the white shirt. He didn’t shave the beard completely, but made it a bit lighter – that was what suited him well.
On the questions about the weight-loss journey answered and joked he was practically “dying” and the result he has now is the “ladies’ size 50”.
What was told about the film is it has influenced him much not only physically, as he dropped the kilos, but also professionally. We shall see it exactly: “It’s a different type of movie…with the one of the movie you kind of want to change the tone of your acting…”
Besides, that exact period he was also leading the TV-running program “Behind Two Ferns” – comedy and easy-going time spend.
5.2015 – Zach surprised everyone with the amazing trimming down at the SAG Awards ceremony, when wearing the tuxedo with a bow-tie and a light beard. The camera was going to adore him as during the evening many good photos were made – the aim he wanted to achieve – do be adored both by public and critics with the own look.
According to “Men&Fitness”, the movie presenter has lost up to 60 pounds, which is equal to 27 kilos, from the initial point in 2013. What a great number!
The actor also admits that the main reason for the process started was not even the kind of alcohol addiction he had, but the driving accident, which occurred in that period. Zach was very terrified with the situation, so far claimed to stop the mess, which did take place in his life.
6.2016 – What is the current state of things? The best reply would be – impressive 70 pounds, or 31,5 kilos, to be presented at FX TCA Winter Press Tour Panel at Langham Hotel. The event occurred on the 16th January.
What emphasized the look was silver trousers and shirt different casts and a light bears, which was accompanied with messy hair. Zach told with the look he is back to his former style, but with a completely new appearance and gained habits.
So, to sum up, it may be said that the words are not important for some people until they face some essential difficulties or struggles to overcome. That’s what happened to Zach. Hopefully, everything is alright now, so we wish luck and inspiration to him being eager to see him on screen soon.
