Andrew Rannells' Weight Gain: He Has Not Yet Spoken About It!
So, Andrew Rannells (@andrewrannells) has had a weight gain and that's the latest buzz around him. He has not talked about it all, so we don't know, why and how he put on weight but for a section of his fans and followers, it is all they can talk about.
As per what fans and followers have noticed, Andrew Rannells underwent a weight gain in quite a short amount of time. Still, they kind of expected it because it really looked like it was just a matter of time from the time when he first debuted his bigger body in 2020. People talked about him then and they are doing it now.
Speaking of what happened in 2020, the actor made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's show where people observed that he had gotten bigger. It was not much but it really brought strong reactions from people. They think he must have packed on a good 40 pounds guessing from his 'huge gut in a skinny suit.' Some made speculations about his relationship and said that it must have ended and so, he had to have been 'nursing his pain at the buffet.'
But some supported him through it all and called people out for making too much of a fuss about Andrew Rannells' weight gain. They said that it was so ridiculous because fans were treating him like he had blown up to James Corden's size even though he looked perfectly fine.(Not that Corden should be treated like that.) They also reasoned that he must be glad and secure in the relationship he settled down in and so, he let himself go.
Some of them also said that he looked fatter with more weight gain because his suit was tighter than before. They sympathized with him for having a weight that fluctuated so often.
Now, two years later, things do not seem to have changed and Andrew Rannells' weight just seems to have progressed as he looks even bigger than before. We can tell he did not embark on a weight loss journey because he looked real fat, which again incited pretty extreme reactions among people. This time more people were critical of him for letting himself go like that.
They all got really snarky on discussion forums about Andrew Rannells' weight gain saying things like 'did they use a wide-angle lens to achieve that look or is he a fatty now?' (The new 'did the camera add 10 pounds') And the same relationship speculations that things might have ended with Tuc Watkins (they were wrong the first time) were reiterated. Trolls said things like 'they don't seem like a couple anymore because of the weight gap.'
Some people left comments asking if Andrew Rannells was auditioning for The Whale because it sure looked like it as there was enough of him for at least two of them. There were others who thought the weight gain was not unintentional and that he had done it for some role he might be playing. They said that he was simply not the sort who would gain that much weight all of a sudden unless it was for a role as he was too shallow and vain.
It seems strange that he has not yet spoken up about his weight gain and against the body shamers when he once did the same for his Girls costar Lena Dunham.
