Zach Galifianakis Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis made his first public appearance in a year and debuted a drastically slimmer figure.

At a screening of Birdman at the New York Film Festival on Sunday, Galifianakis walked the red carpet in a fitted charcoal plaid suit (which looks better than it sounds), a pale blue button-up and a navy tie. While his beard had been trimmed, Galifianakis had grown out his hair to his shoulders. Overall, we've got to say he was killing it.

Dramatic celebrity weight loss

As for why the Between Two Ferns star has avoided the spotlight recently, Us Weekly reports that at a press conference for Birdman Galifianakis explained: "Being a celebrity is sh-- — it's dumb, and I'm not interested in it. I like to be an actor, and that's it. The blurred lines are, I think, man-made. I think celebrity is a man-made thing; it's not innate in us. ...I'd rather just do my work and go home and watch Lifetime."

Wouldn't we all, Zach? Wouldn't we all?

What do you think of Galifianakis' new figure?
