Well, this is unusual!

Whitney Cummings is talking about her recent weight gain — and why she's grateful to have packed on the pounds!

"I gained, like, 25 pounds, which I think I needed to," the Whitney star, 32, said on the Today show on Monday, July 27.

"I was way too skinny before. Here's the thing... When you're on television you get confused. I looked like I was passing away, like I was so skinny. It's not attractive."

The actress/comedienne looked completely different and even jokingly told hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford that she feels like she "bought a new face."
