Everyone at the festival noticed Goodman — but not just for his weight loss. The event's organizer Laurent Puons gushed over the actor when revealing why the team asked him to become the festival's head of the jury.

“John Goodman is, quite frankly, a legend,” she told Variety. “My grandson loves him, my mother loves him and I love him.”

Laurent continued by praising Goodman over his four-decades-long career.

“He’s crossed several generations with a phenomenal film career, and a phenomenal television career. He’s done it all, played every role,” she explained. “If he wasn’t leading the jury, we’d give him our lifetime achievement award.”

The Roseanne actor has changed his lifestyle to drop weight. He ditched alcohol in 2007 and has since adopted a Mediterranean-style eating plan focusing on lean protein like fish and chicken, grains, and olive oil.

Goodman also makes sure to exercise plenty by working out 6 days per week.

The star revealed he gets in 10,000-12,000 steps per day. Goodman often walks around his ritzy Los Angeles neighborhood. He also addressed his eating issues in 2016, revealing, “I’d have a handful of food and it’d go to my mouth. I was just eating all the time. I was just eating alcoholically.”

"In the old days, I would take three months out, lose 60 or 70 pounds, and then reward myself with a 6-pack of Bud or whatever and just go back to my old habits,” he told ABC. “Then this time I wanted to do it slowly, move, exercise. I’m getting to the age where I can’t afford to sit still anymore. And it gives me the energy to work, ‘cause work is very draining.”

“I just got tired, sick and tired of looking at myself. You’re shaving in the mirror and you don’t want to look at yourself. It gets dangerous.”
