He may have been our favourite cast member in The Hangover, but it seems Zach Galifianakis fancies a new self-image.

The actor, who hasn’t been spotted since last October, but stepped back into the limelight again on Sunday while promoting his latest film “Birdman (Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance).”

The actor, who has slimmed down to nearly half his size, jokingly let E! News in on his transformation saying:

"I'm just ... I'm dying," he deadpanned.

When questioned about his unusual choice of response by host Jimmy Fallon, Galifianakis said he likes to liven up the usually dull questions of the red carpet:

"I live for the carpet. Salt-of-the-earth people there. 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."

He then explained how he told the reporter he's dying, but she continued talking about his outfit:

"They don't pay attention. They're not interested. They just want you to screw up. That's all they want you to do."

The comedian previously spoke about his weight loss attempts with Conan O’Brien, saying he found his new diet was working wonders on his waistline:

"I was having a lot of vodka with sausage," he joked. "Delicious, but bad for you."

Whatever he’s doing is clearly working for him!
