For those of us who were worried that the ever-endearing John Goodman would soon jump on celebrity death craze bandwagon, you can put your concerns to rest. A shockingly slim and sober Goodman appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman this week to discuss his new healthy lifestyle, and presumably a project of some sort. Goodman said he was pushing 400 at his peak and cites quitting drinking as the source of his success. Goodman’s target weight? “30 pounds”. It’s good to know he’ll be around for awhile.
