Marissa Jaret Winokur has shown off her incredible fifty-pound weight loss, and she looks amazing…
And fans are absolutely living for it.
Born in New York City, the actress started out by graduating from The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in 1993.
And she played Pink Lady Jan in the Grease on Broadway in 1995.
Marissa appeared in movies such as American Beauty, Never Been Kissed, Teaching Mrs. Tingle, Beautiful Girl, Fever Pitch, and she provided one of the voices in Shrek the Halls.
She also appeared in Curb Your Enthusiasm…
Where she got into a fight with Larry David over the first appointment at a doctor’s office.
She played the role of Tracy in the Broadway production of Hairspray between 2008-2009.
Hairspray gave the actress a huge name in Broadway.
When she won a Tony award for her performances as Tracy, she famously said:
“If a 4-foot-11, chubby New York girl can be a leading lady in a Broadway show and win a Tony… then anything can happen.“
Marissa was actually battling cervical cancer during her time in Hairspray, and she didn’t let anyone know in fear of being replaced.
Thankfully, she made a full recovery and remained in the production.
And she’s also been happily married to writer, Judah Miller since 2006.
The couple share a son together.
It seems that the actress is wanting to make some personal changes to her life.
“If you have been following my story’s you know how hard I have been working out with Keith Anthony to get healthy. Truth COVID scares me. I checked off all the boxes, I am HIGH RISK ! So I started working out at home with Keith via zoom classes and eating healthy to have a fighting chance,” she wrote on Instagram.
“In all honestly I also needed something to focus on have a goal . 6 months later I have lost almost 50 pounds. We have been here before. I was scared to post photos, it’s really one day at a time for me when it comes to food. But I thought, COVID isn’t over we are all sitting ducks maybe I could inspire someone ANYONE to chose to fight!”
She then explained that she hasn’t suffered from asthma in months and that her strength is at an all-time high thanks to her incredible weight loss.
She looks stunning, to say the least…
