Pete Davidson's little fib got Alec Baldwin fit!
While appearing on "The Tonight Show," Pete recalled giving Alec some fitness tips — tips that the comedian just made up on the spot and doesn't follow.
The whole thing started after the father of seven and Pete appeared in a skit together on "Saturday Night Live" several years ago.
"It was a sketch where I had to be shirtless. I guess I'm a little bit cut or whatever," Pete told Jimmy Fallon. "There's no, like, nice way to say that."
Alec asked Pete what he did to stay in shape.
"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,'" Pete recalled. "To make him feel better, I was like, 'I do 100 push-ups and 100 sit-ups every day.'"
Unbeknownst to Pete, Alec followed the advice. Now, fast forward to Alec being cast as Donald Trump on "SNL" and being on the New York-based set more often.
"I would see him every week, and every time we would run into the hall, he'd be like, '100 a day,'" Pete said. "And he started to do it and he lost, like, 100 pounds. And he says it's all because of me."
While it's not known exactly how much weight Alec has dropped, he did speak about living healthier in 2019 while speaking to "Extra."
"I started juicing in the morning — I don't eat breakfast," he said. "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."
