Ricky Gervais after losing weight
Nothing could scare Ricky Gervais more than his won fat. The actor revealed he lost almost two stone following a rigorous exercise regime.
The comedian was afraid his fat would kill him. So he now trains for an hour a day.
“I have got fit after running around Hampstead. I also have a gym in my house – well it is a bit like a spa. But I really work out. Its nothing to do with Hollywood or looking good. This is a health thing. I thought enough is enough. I need to look after myself. I am nearly 50 – I don’t want to die. I work out for an hour a day. I have lost about 20lbs. I think that is enough. I haven’t stopped eating anything – it is just exercise”, the 49-year-old actor revealed.
The he made a joke about his regime. “I don’t want to blow it. So now, everything’s great. And you’re going to die at the age of 51 of a heart attack, you fat idiot”, he said.
Gervais is currently working on two film projects, new shows for the BBC and Sky and will host the Golden Globes.
