While the 45-year-old has kept pretty mum about his trimmed-down physique, he's recently been very vocal about how he dislikes being famous. "Being a celebrity is s**t -- it's dumb, and I'm not interested in it," he said at a press conference for Birdman. "I like to be an actor, and that's it. The blurred lines are, I think, man-made. I think celebrity is a man-made thing; it's not innate in us… I'd rather just do my work and go home and watch Lifetime."
Galifianakis was also a guest on Monday's The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and again touched on how uncomfortable the red carpet makes him. "Oh, I live on the carpet. I live for the carpet. Salt of the Earth, people there," he told Fallon sarcastically. "I find the questions are boring [on the red carpet] and I try to liven it up a bit."
He recalled, "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.'"
Galifianakis said that didn't stop the woman from taking the interview in another direction. "She goes, 'Ha, ha. So what are you wearing?'" he said. "They don't pay attention."
Another talked-about moment from the funnyman's appearance on The Tonight Show was his sketch with Fallon called "Excuses," where Galifianakis and the late-night host try to make plans but are all booked up until 2030.
