JOHN Goodman was all smiles as he showed off his svelte new figure at the premiere of Tubi’s new animated show The Freak Brothers.
The Conners star has shed over 200 pounds since overhauling his lifestyle in 2017, when he topped out at nearly 400 pounds.

John, 69, walked the red carpet at Fred Segal sporting an orange V-neck sweater, jeans, and sport coat.
The actor’s weight has fluctuated for years. But he told ABC News in 2017 this time, he had a new approach.
“In the old days, I would take three months out, lose 60 or 70 pounds, and then reward myself with a six-pack or whatever and just go back to my old habits,” he told ABC.
“This time, I wanted to do it slowly. Move, exercise. I’m getting to the age where I can’t afford to sit still anymore.”
John has reportedly adopted a Mediterranean-style diet, featuring meals that focus on fish, olive oil, vegetables, nuts and fruit.
He’s also taken on a personal trainer and upped his exercise routine, taking at least 10,000 steps a day.

John played Roseanne Barr’s embattled, underemployed husband Dan on the 90’s classic sitcom Roseanne.
He now plays the lead in the spinoff The Conners, which stars most of the original cast with the exception of Roseanne.
The star even won a Golden Globe for his role in the 2018 reboot of the show.
John says he has also been sober since 2007 and continues to focus on a healthier lifestyle.
Meanwhile, his former television wife continues to court controversy.
Last year, as the world succumbed to Covid, Roseanne said the coronavirus pandemic is all a scheme to “get rid” of her entire generation commonly referred to as “boomers.”
The outspoken actress, 67, made the claim on Norm Macdonald’s old talk show.
Norm, who passed away in September 2021, sat on his couch from home as the camera rolled on his speaker phone conversation with the former Roseanne star.
“The earth is like ‘here’s a virus, you know, here’s a little test see how you do,’” Norm said bringing up the topic.
The Emmy and Golden Globe winner responded: “I think we’re being forced to evolve.”
She continued on her theory: “I think they’re just trying to get rid of all my generation.”
Roseanne said her thesis is backed up due to millennials attempting to “inherit the money” of the boomer generation.
“The boomer ladies that, you know, that inherited their… you know, are widows.
“They inherited the money so they got to go wherever the money is and figure out a way to get it away from people,” the sitcom star fired off.
The mother of five then told Norm the pandemic could “absolutely” be the “rapture.”
THE END OF AN ERA
Two years earlier, Roseanne sabotaged her career after infamously tweeting about politician Valerie Jarrett, just as she was enjoying a personal renaissance thanks to the smash revival of her self-titled sitcom.
Roseanne was accused of using a racial slur against Valerie – who served as a senior advisor to former President Obama.
Using Valerie’s initials, the actress tweeted at the time: “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=VJ.”
The same day she posted the message, ABC president Channing Dungey – who was the first African-American woman to head the network – fired Roseanne and canceled the reboot.
Channing called the remark “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.”
The reboot was rebooted again – this time focusing on the remaining original cast members.
Renamed The Conners, the new show premiered on October 16, 2018.
