Pete Davidson Claims Alec Baldwin Lost “Like 100 Pounds” Because Of Him
Pete Davidson is not exactly the picture of health. You don’t look at him and think, “Wow, he must spend all day in the gym,” but he’s certainly not unfit either.
During the Tuesday episode of The Tonight Show, the 27-year-old Saturday Night Live star talked about how he’s responsible for Alec Baldwin losing 100 pounds.
Now it’s important to remind everyone that Baldwin has not claimed to have lost 100 pounds, so keep that in mind while reading this story.
Davidson explained that a few years ago Baldwin was hosting SNL and Davidson had to appear in a skit shirtless.
“I guess I’m a little bit cut or whatever. There’s no, like, nice way to say that,” Davidson told Jimmy Fallon. And according to Pete, Baldwin was impressed and wanted to know how he stayed so lean.
I didn’t want to be rude and say like, ‘I still have metabolism. I’m not in my mid-50s. I just wake up like this.’
So Pete decided to tell him that he does 100 push-ups and 100 sit-ups every day, which Baldwin apparently took to heart.
Baldwin has made multiple appearances on SNL throughout the past year or two, thanks to his performance as Donald Trump, and every single time he sees Pete on set, he yells, “100 a day!”
“He lost, like, 100 pounds. And he says it’s all because of me,” Davidson explained. And while that sounds like a wonderful story, we don’t know how factual it is.
Baldwin hasn’t exactly said how much weight he’s lost, but he did talk about his recent diet changes a little over year ago during an interview on Extra.
I started juicing in the morning—I don’t eat breakfast. I wanted to lose weight because I was pre-diabetic, and I didn’t want to shoot insulin. So, I started juicing—green juices, cashew milk—and just trying to eliminate sugar as much as possible.
Which makes more sense. Losing weight starts in the kitchen.
