However, Galifianakis is weary of the attention his new look brings, especially when he's on a red carpet. In October he told Jimmy Fallon, "I find the questions are boring [on the red carpet] and I try to liven it up a bit. There was this woman on the red carpet and she said, 'Oh! It looks like you've lost some weight.' I just looked at her and I went, 'Yeah, I'm dying.'"
And it gets worse. "She goes, 'Ha, ha. So what are you wearing?'" he said. "They don't pay attention.”
That must be why the 45-year-old actor opted to skip the entire red carpet at last night's awards.
