John Goodman Early Life
Goodman’s birthplace is Affton, Missouri. John’s dad, postal worker Leslie Francis Goodman, passed away suddenly when John was just two. Virginia Roos (née Loosmore), Goodman’s mother, worked as a server at Jack and Phil’s Bar-B-Q, a retail sales clerk, and a laundress to make ends meet.
Goodman has two siblings: an elder brother named Leslie (14 years his senior) and a younger sister named Elisabeth (born 6 months after their father’s death). He comes from a long line of Anglo-Saxons, Germans, and Welshmen and is a Southern Baptist by upbringing.
After his father’s untimely death and his brother’s departure from college, Goodman spent much of his boyhood alone and distant from others. As a result of his weight, he endured constant taunting at school.
Goodman joined the Boy Scouts up to ninth grade because he needed discipline and friendship; he also looked up to his Scout leaders, who became his father figures, and his acting coaches. Goodman’s brother eventually moved back in with the family to assist in their upbringing along with Goodman’s sister. Goodman was a huge fan of radio and comic books as a kid.
He started out reading DC Comics like Green Lantern and The Atom but subsequently switched to Marvel. The paperback editions of Mad were among the books he admitted reading from his brother’s collection and then stealing. His brother is credited by Goodman as the person who first exposed him to humor and bebop.

John Goodman Career
Goodman opted to leave Missouri for New York City in 1975, after an injury interrupted his college football career, in order to pursue a career as an actor. Goodman attempted and failed to make money as a bartender and waiter after moving to Hell’s Kitchen with a modest bankroll from his brother to be closer to the Theater District.
Still, he was able to achieve some measure of fame through acting in commercials, stage productions, and voiceovers. TV commercials featuring him slapping himself with the catchphrase “Thanks… I needed that!” for Skin Bracer by Mennen are legendary. Before obtaining character roles in films during the early 1980s, Goodman played off-Broadway and at dinner theatres.

While he was in New Orleans filming Everybody’s All-American, they met during a Halloween party at Tipitina’s. They have a home in New Orleans’s Garden District. Molly Evangeline Goodman (born 1990) is a film industry production assistant and a credit to her parents.
John Goodman’s Weight Loss
For the premiere of “The Freak Brothers” on Tubi at Fred Segal on Monday, John Goodman showed off his trim figure on the red carpet.
The actor of “The Conners,” who just lost 200 pounds, proudly posed for photos with co-stars Pete Davidson, who sported a Fred Segal Reverse Logo Hoodie, and Blake Anderson, who sported a pair of trousers and an orange V-neck sweater.
Goodman, then 69 years old, started his makeover in 2007. The yo-yoing continued until he reached a plateau at roughly 400 pounds, at which point he made the decision to make wholesale changes to his way of life.
“The Flintstones” star ditched alcohol entirely and hired personal trainer Mackie Shilstone to help him live differently.
“It takes a lot of creative energy to sit on your ass and figure out what you’re going to eat next,” Goodman told People magazine in 2010. “I wanted to live life better.”
Former “Roseanne” star John Goodman has improved his health and fitness by switching to a Mediterranean diet rich in fish, olive oil, vegetables, nuts, and fruit and increasing his daily step count to between 10,000 and 12,000.
“This didn’t happen overnight — it’s been an ongoing process,” Shilstone said of Goodman’s progress.
Goodman first debuted his 100-pound weight loss at the “Trumbo” premiere in 2015.
“It was basically just portion control and ‘I don’t need it,’” he told AARP in 2018. “I was just shoving everything into my mouth.”
