CNN host, Don Lemon, sort-of addressed the concern fans and coworkers have had over his recent dramatic weight loss.
While passing around a massive convenience store Philly pretzel to his panel covering the Democratic National Convention, Lemon said he had been “running a lot,” in his effort to explain his recent weight loss.

“That was a lifetime ago when I had a whole lot more hair and a lot less body weight,” Lemon said. “I was giving Will Smith a run for his money. Clearly he won on the money part.” Lemon joins his fellow CNN host Anderson Cooper, who began modeling at age 10for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Macy’s, but stopped a few years later after he said he was “propositioned by a photographer.” On Wednesday, Bill O’Reilly revealed that he had been approached by a modeling agency during his early career to be the “Marlboro man” for the famous cigarette campaign. h/t huffpo
