Ross Matthews, Jay Leno's former dandy jester turned Chelsea Lately panelist, recently lost a bunch of weight. Good for him! How'd he do it? Through terrible shame. Terrible shame instilled in him by none other than diamond willow reed Gwyneth Paltrow.

From People:

Last November, Gwyneth Paltrow gave Ross Mathews, the late night TV comic from Chelsea Lately – a little tough love.

"We were taping a Chelsea special," Mathews, 31, tells PEOPLE, "and she pointed at my tummy and said, 'What's going on here? I love you. Get it together."

Nice story!

While not all of us will be lucky enough in our own lives to have Gwyneth Paltrow tell us to our faces to get it together, we can at least remember her inspiring words as we walk into the gym and stand there for a second until saying "Eh, fuck it" and walking out and getting a piece of pizza on the way home.
