Whoopi Goldberg stole our hearts way back in Ghost (RIP Patrick Swayze) so we couldn’t be more pleased about her latest good news. The Whoopster has lost a whopping 30 pounds!
Whoopi, who turns 59 later this year, stopped by Good Morning America this week and gave us a good look at her trimmer figure. In fact, she’s looking so different these days, she says she actually worried some of her fans!
“I’m a bit thinner,” Whoopi tells GMA host Robin Roberts. “I should have been telling people. People started asking, saying, ‘Boy, are you OK? What’s going on?’”
The Sister Act star says she’s totally fine, just looking to get healthier. She already cut out smoking last year, a lifestyle change that unfortunately contributed to her weight gain. “I put on a refrigerator,” the funny lady joked of her unexpected extra baggage.
Whoopi didn’t realize the change in her shape right away though. In fact, it took something pretty big to inspire her to lose weight! She doesn’t have a lot of mirrors in her house and, as she tells Robin, doesn’t look at herself a lot. Want to know Whoopi’s surprising inspiration? Watch the video above.
