Everyone’s favorite Roseanne star, John Goodman, is back in the spotlight thanks to the show’s exciting new reboot, and now that he’s returned to the small screen, fans can’t stop talking about his recent drastic weight loss.

In early 2017, the 65-year-old first showed off his reported 100-pound drop during an appearance on Live With Kelly and has now continued flaunting his much-slimmer figure on the ABC revival that fans can’t get enough of.

John has opened up about his decision to get healthy in the past. “[I was] pushing 400 [pounds]… Somewhere up around there,” the father-of-one confessed. “I’m [never] not going to look like Paris Hilton or anything like that. It’s going to be an ongoing process for the rest of my life.”

Before finally getting in shape for good, John had tried to lose the weight time and time again, but didn’t succeed. However, this time around he was very serious. “It takes a lot of creative energy to sit on your a-s and figure out what you’re going to eat next,” he said. “This time I wanted to [lose weight] slowly, move, exercise. I’m getting to the age where I can’t afford to sit still.”
