This is really sad to hear.

Ricky Gervais used to poke fun at his own weight — but now he’s in too good of shape!
He was spotted going for a jog yesterday afternoon in North London, looking really out of breath.
That means he’s working hard!
Also, running releases tons of endorphins, which makes you happy, which will help him write funny comedy!

Comedians are young at heart, and Ricky Gervais revealed that he didn’t start eating veggies until he turned 48.
And he’s lost a ton of weight as a result.
"After Christmas 2009 I got my act together a little bit. I work out every day now and I eat my vegetables. I didn't eat vegetables at all until about 18 months ago and it used to annoy people. Jane would give me a soup or stew and I would devour everything that was meat or gravy. But I'm learning to alter my tastes and I'm liking the experience. I thought vegetables were boring."
Gervais said that he got his act together after he realized that health complications from his weight could end his career.
"I don't want to blow it. I don't want to go, 'Oh f**k! You idiot. So now, everything's great. And you're going to die at the age of 51 of a heart attack, you fat idiot.' "
LOL! We’re glad he got his act together!
