Ricky Gervais Eats Vegetables

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.

Said Gervais:

"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.

He continued:

"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!
