Kathy Bates Looks Incredible on Photos after Losing Almost 60 Pounds

The 70-year-old Kathy Bates said she feels like a new person after dropping the excess weight.

The "American Horror Story" star said in an exclusive interview with US Weekly that half the battle was to cultivate mindfulness.

She explained: 

“My niece told me this little secret; I guess it’s no secret, it’s a biological thing, that at some point when you’re eating, you have this involuntary sigh and that’s really your brain and your stomach communicating that you’ve had enough.”

She also cut soda and junk food from her eating plan. The changes didn't happen overnight but took a few years. 

However, Bates said the results were worth it in the end, and for the first time in years, her health "is great." She added: 

“I just had a physical. I’m doing great. I feel like a completely different person. I can move, I can walk. I just wish I had done it years ago.”

Bates is a cancer survivor and landed her role in "American Horror Story" shortly after being diagnosed in 2012. 

She refers to her return to the show business as her "third act" and said she "never dreamed any of this stuff would happen." 

Fans of Bates can look forward to her upcoming project, "The Highwaymen." The film is currently in post-production and will be released later this year. 

It follows the story of a pair of police officers who come out of retirement to catch the infamous outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. 

Fans from "The Big Bang" theory will also recognize Bates as Amy difficult mother. 

Bates has more than 120 film credits to her name. Her career began 55 years ago when she landed her first role in the series "The Doctors."

She appeared in 34 episodes of the show "Harriet's Law", in the role of Harriet Korn. The show was canceled in 2012. 

Bates also received critical acclaim for her portrayal of Ruth Whitefeather Feldman in the comedy "Disjointed."
