Kevin Smith talks about his 65-pound weight loss

By Jen Chaney

Kevin Smith tends to talk (and tweet) a lot. And during his Tuesday night interview with Joy Behar on CNN, he did just that, speaking at a speed worthy of an Aaron Sorkin script and prompting Behar to ask, "Are you on amphetamines?"

We don't think he was. But we do think it's pretty entertaining to keep up with the Sundance controversy generator as he explains that he lost 65 pounds but still wears mega-large hockey jerseys; describes what happened on that famous Southwest flight from which he was removed; and notes that it's not fair to refer to him as a "blimp" in a newspaper headline.

You should track down Marc Maron's WTF? podcast interview with Kevin. Smith's description of what happened is amazing, unbelievable, alarming, enraging and hilarious - often all at once (e.g., after they got him on another flight, they changed the seat assignment of a plus-sized [or whatever euphemism you'd prefer] woman so that she'd be seated beside him in an attempt to get him to get off that plane).

As soon as Smith stops his low calorie, Optifast starvation diet and starts eating normally, he's going to start putting back those pounds and be back to where he started.

Wait a minute-that's him *after* he lost 65 pounds? Good God, what did he look like before?!
