Chaz Bono, son of Cher and the late Sonny Bono, has seen a dramatic weight loss – 65 pounds – and wants to drop another 15.

Recent photos show the 44-year-old looking healthy and shockingly thin while walking outside an actors' workshop in Los Angeles.

"Bono looked nearly unrecognizable with his shockingly slimmer physique," wrote Nicole Eggenberger for US Weekly. "The actor showed off his toned body in a tight blue T-shirt and khaki shorts."

Bono, who participated in the 13th season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars" in 2011, tweeted about his weight loss in May.

"Got a juicer to add more vegetables to my diet," Bono tweeted. "My first juice was combo of apple, lemon, beet, carrot, celery, cucumber and ginger. Awesome!"

Bono told People magazine in May that he feels incredible since losing weight.

"I'm in a lot less discomfort when I exercise and am doing physical stuff," Bono said to People. "All of my numbers are all normal now, which is great – my blood pressure, my cholesterol. I just have a lot more confidence, and that feels really cool. I really like what I see in the mirror."

While continued weight loss has been getting more difficult, he refuses to give up.

"To me, it was never really about a number," Bono told People. "It was just about getting healthy and feeling and looking better. So I'm just kind of letting my body dictate. I've been eating the same way now for months and months and that hasn't changed. I'm going to have to eat this way for the rest of my life."

In June, US Weekly reported that Bono appeared in the Hollywood community play production of "Thirty Minute Musicals: Independence Day."

Bono began acting at 14 and attended the High School of Performing Arts in New York. Bono underwent gender transition from female to male in a series of procedures that began in 2009.
