Comedian, proud owner of the best beard in America and host of Behind Two Ferns Zach Galifianakis has lost some weight recently.

This is what happened when a reporter from E! asked him about it.

The full, marvellous exchange, which you can watch here, went:

Reporter: "Did you change what you eat, start going to the gym?"

Galifianakis: "No, I'm just... I'm dying."

Reporter [points to suit]: "But you look good. That suits you very well."

Galifianakis: "Thank you, it's a ladies' [size] 50."

As he told Jimmy Fallon while recounting the incident: "I live for the [red] carpet.

"There's excitement and you kind of have to feign this excitement. And then you have to answer questions that, I find, the questions are boring. So I try to liven it up a bit."
