Sporting Slimmer Figure, Ricky Gervais Promises to Stop Making Fat Jokes


Ricky Gervais


'Now I've got to stop making jokes about fat people, which is annoying. When I was fat, it was OK,' says the funnyman.

Once-chubby funnyman Ricky Gervais has dropped a segment of his stand-up comedy show poking fun at fat people after adopting a healthier lifestyle and shedding more than 20 pounds (nine kilograms). "The Office" creator is known for his heavier frame but he has recently cut down on his food intake and started exercising more regularly with his longtime girlfriend Jane Fallon - and now they're both lighter on their feet.

He tells People.com, "I lost 20 (or) 22 pounds (9.98 kilograms). 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 didn't eat differently. I probably just stopped having that second meal at 11.30 at night."

But Gervais, 49, admits there's one drawback to slimming down. He says, "Now I've got to stop making jokes about fat people, which is annoying. When I was fat, it was OK."
