HOLLYWOOD actor John Goodman looked unrecognizable as he walked the red carpet after losing 14th place.
The 70-year-old star’s impressive weight loss has shocked fans who remember him when he was at his peak weight at 28.
John played the famous role of Fred Flintstone in The Flintstones in 1994 and has had roles in Steven Spielberg’s film Arachnophobia.
Actor John also received an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor at Studio 60 in 2007.
But that same year, he began to worry about his weight after reaching the height of a sumo wrestler.
He admitted: “I had a handful of food and it ended up in my mouth. I just ate the whole time. I only ate alcoholic.
After losing weight over the past 14 years, John stepped out to celebrate the HBO series The Righteous Gemstone at the 62nd Monte Carlo Film Festival.
He showed off his physique in a tailored suit jacket and beige trousers.
He said: “I used to take a three month break, lose 60 or 70 pounds, then treat myself to a six pack or whatever and just go back to my old habits.”
Along with the doctor’s orders, the actor revealed his self-esteem had hit rock bottom and he knew it was time for a change.
He admitted: “I just got tired, sick and tired of looking at myself. You shave in the mirror and don’t want to look at yourself. It’s getting dangerous.”
He changed his diet to stop binge eating and hired a personal trainer to put him on a rigorous exercise regimen.
John also switched to a Mediterranean diet, eating fish and meat, vegetables and olive oil.
