Kathy Bates (75) caused a stir with an appearance in Los Angeles. The actress surprised everyone with her weight loss at a CBS event at Paramount Studios. The 75-year-old appeared significantly slimmer at the event in a black pants suit. Bates, who is currently filming the new edition of “Matlock,” wore her shoulder-length hair down and styled straight.

A few weeks ago, the British newspaper “Mirror,” among others, showed pictures from the set of their new TV project. While filming the CBS reboot of “Matlock,” it was clear to see how much weight the actress lost. According to media reports, there is talk of over 25 kilos.

In an interview, Bates explained about her weight loss that there were health reasons behind it. She told “Extra”: “I was dealing with diabetes – it runs in my family – and I really didn’t want to live with it.” The actress added: “I’m the healthiest I’ve been in years and I’m so grateful – it’s a miracle.”

She also revealed how she lost weight: “After eating for 20 to 30 minutes, you hear an involuntary sigh. This is a communication between your stomach and brain that tells you that you’ve eaten enough… and what I “I’ve discovered that if you listen to that sigh and push the plate away for just five minutes, you’ll realize that you’re full and don’t need to eat anymore.”

According to media reports, Oscar winner Kathy Bates will play criminal lawyer Madeline Matlock in the new edition of the famous crime series “Matlock”. She follows actor Andy Griffith (1926-2012), who portrayed the famous TV lawyer Benjamin “Ben” Matlock in nine seasons and almost 200 episodes from 1986 to 1995.
