It's safe to say that some "Lost" fans shed a few tears when the series ended after in 2010, but what about the actors who spent 6 years playing those characters?

"A little bit," Josh Holloway says, as he jokes about shedding one tear.

But crying is not what he remembers most about the time after the show said goodbye.

"I actually kind of let things go and got a little [chubby]," he recalls. "And I was feeling good about it -- [thinking] 'It's okay, I've got a little baby, I'm raising a baby ...'"

(I mean, can you blame the guy for relaxing and indulging after staying in shirtless-for-TV shape for 6 years?)

It wasn't until he came face-to-face with a reporter that boldly asked him about his weight gain that he really thought anything of it.

"I was trapped in the parking structure in the Beverly Center by TMZ," the "Colony" star explains, "and this guy whips out a camera and says, 'So what do you say to fans that say you're fat and [you've] lost it?'"

(Cue Stephanie Tanner from "Full House" saying, "How rude!")

Don't worry, though, Josh laughed it off!

"I actually laughed," he assures Rach. "I was like, 'Wow, that's really brazen, bro. Okay …' [And] I promptly got back into shape."
