Ricky Gervais lost a bunch of weight, too



rsz_tbd-rickygervais100510.jpgWhile most of us are still reeling from Drew Carey's stunning weight loss, The Office creator Ricky Gervais and his girlfriend Jane Fallon teamed up to drop about 40 combined pounds and counting. Don't worry, they'll catch up to Drew's 70 in due time.

"It wasn't so much about the weight. It was more that I was a fat, lazy, out of shape slob, to be honest," the Brit told People, noting he dropped about 22 pounds and Fallon, his partner of more than 25 years, shed 18. There was no big secret as to how he did it, either: Gervais would jog around his London neighborhood and quit eating garbage so late, not to mention Fallon making meals with lower calorie counts. " I didn't eat differently. I probably just stopped having that second meal at 11:30 at night," he added.

This is great for Ricky's health, but his career will be taking the biggest hit. "Now I've got to stop making jokes about fat people, which is annoying," he said. "When I was fat, it was okay." Well, now he'll just have to make fun of normal-sized people.
