AceShowbiz - Anthony Anderson looks very much different these days. The actor has apparently lost a lot of weight as he showed off a much slimmer figure during his recent appearance on "The Kelly Clarkson Show".
The 52-year-old star looked much thinner than he had in the past, sparking concern about his health. He took to Instagram on Tuesday, January 31 to share a photo of him in the waiting room of the talk show, flashing a smile while pointing to the TV screen.
In the caption, Anthony addressed his health issue after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes several years ago. "Hey hey!!! I'm on set today with Kelly Clarkson!" he wrote. "One of the things we talked about is an issue that I'm super passionate about - the link between type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Did you know that people living with type 2 diabetes have an up to 4x greater risk of stroke, heart attack or cardiovascular death? Crazy, right?!"
He continued, "It's so important to stay educated so be sure to tune in! Visit GetRealAboutDiabetes.com to learn more about what YOU can do to keep yourself and loved ones safe."
In the comments section, people couldn't help expressing their concerns about Anthony's frail look. "Get Ya Weight Back Up ! This Ain’t It !! & You Can Be Husky & Healthy !" one person urged him.
A second person wondered, "Has he willingly lost the weight or is he currently unwell? Again, I'm just asking to know and not assume anything…" A third commented, "You don't look well bro...Ur are HEALED in the name of Jesus Christ.. Ameeeeeeen."
Another concerned user wrote, "This ain't about fame or fortune? Are you okay and are you vegan? Are you fasting?" Someone else wished only the best for the comedian as saying, "God I'm praying for you. I hope this isn't about your health."
Some others, however, were not too worried about Anthony's health and even think that he looks better with his slimmer figure. "Looking good brotha!" one person commented. Another gushed, "Ayyy look like you been in the gym tough bro. Keep Inspiring us all."
Someone asked Anthony to share tips to lose weight like him, writing, "I need the diet plan bro. Time to get serious." Another curious fan asked, "Just how did you lose so much weight? I can't even lose 5lbs. Looking great, Sir!"
While it's unclear if Anthony's weight loss is related to his health issue, in 2018, he opened up about his struggles to get his blood sugar under control even after getting diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. "Eventually you have that moment in your life, that epiphany, where you think, 'What do I need to do to change this? What do I need to do to stay healthy and get better?' " he said in an interview with Everyday Health.
