Alec Baldwin credit Pete Davidson with serving to him get in form. Turns out, the recommendation the Saturday Night Live star gave Baldwin was a complete lie.

Davidson appeared on Tuesday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the place he hilariously recalled how Baldwin, 63, approached him about his health routine.

“I was on set and Alec was hosting and it was a sketch where I had to be shirtless. You know, I guess I’m a little bit cut or whatever… there’s no nice way to say that,” Davidson, 27, joked. “So he came up to me and he was like, ‘What do you do?’ And I didn’t want to be rude and say, ‘I just still have a metabolism. I’m not in my mid-50s. I just wake up like this.’ So to make him feel better, I said, ‘Oh man, I do 100 push-ups and 100 sit-ups every day.’ And he was like, ‘Got it.'”

Baldwin, who has hosted SNL 17 occasions between 1990 and 2017, began seeing Davidson commonly as he performed former President Donald Trump. 

“I would see him every week. And every time I’d run into him in the hall, he’d be like, ‘100 a day!'” Davidson laughed. “And he started to do it and he lost like 100 pounds. And he says it’s all because of me.” 

Baldwin really confirmed the story two years in the past on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show when speaking about his health routine.

“Pete Davidson said, ‘Do 100 push-ups a day, every day,” Baldwin advised Stern. “And I do it now, I do more. I do like 125, 150. You build up.” 

Hey, it labored.
