The Hangover star has previously claimed that cutting out alcohol helped him lose weight.

“I stopped drinking and I just kind of put the weight off,” he said during a 2013 appearance on Conan O’Brien’s late night show. “I was having a lot of vodka with sausage…delicious but bad for you.”

He added, “I was getting into too much trouble with the drinking, so I just kind of stopped.”

Galifianakis also had some fun with the observation over the years, telling E! News in 2014 that the weight loss was due to him “dying” and joking that his suit jacket was a “ladies [size] 50.”
