PERFECT Strangers star Bronson Pinchot revealed a new slimmed-down figure after losing 60 pounds during the pandemic.
The 61-year-old actor shared that it took him just six months to lose the weight.
Bronson, who recently starred as Principal Hawthorne on Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, told Page Six the desire to embark on a new health journey came after seeing a photo of himself he didn’t like.
He stumbled upon a picture of himself from his time competing on Battle of the Network Stars in 2017, which saw actors going up against each other in various athletic games.
“There was an old fat guy,” he recalled of what he thought upond seeing the photo.
This turning point came just a couple of months into lockdown, and he decided in May 2020 to make a change and work on his health and fitness.
In just six months, he dropped 60 pounds.
He credited a lot of healthy eating for helping him shed teh weight.
After getting rid of all the junk food at his home, he explained: “Then I just put healthy food in the house and I said, ‘OK, puppy, you can have whatever’s there.’”
Earlier this month, Bronson shared before-and-after photos of himself, featuring a photo of him in a cobalt blue long-sleeve and shorts combo on Battle of the Network Sttars and present-day one of him in a T-shirt and shorts.
He captioned the update post: “Me. Before self-designed healthy plant-based eating program & 20 seconds ago.”
At the start of his journey, Bronson had sleep troubles because of hunger pains, but they eventually subsided as his body got used to his new way of eating.
He’s now vegan and trying to maintain his weight loss without any exercise for the time being.
After slimming down, the actor decided to try on some of the clothes he took from the set of Perfect Strangers, on which he starred as Balki Bartokomous.
He revealed: “I just took off my clothes and put them on and they fit.
“And I thought, ‘I’m pretty sure I’m the only 61-year-old within a 10-mile radius that’s getting into his clothes from when he was a 26-year-old doing two aerobics classes a day.’
“And that feels pretty good. That feels pretty good.”

The actor added to fans on Instagram of what led him to get healthier: “I looked at myself shortly after my 61st birthday in May and was truly appalled at where I had let my bad habits & pandemic stress lead me.”
He said he now feels “light, flexible, healthy, hydrated & confident.”
