It’s no secret that Jonah Hill has been pretty all over the place with his weight. We remember the comedian as this chubby adorable guy in Super Bad and then losing a significant amount of weight in movies like 21 Jump Street.
Then we also remember him gaining all his weight back in movies like Wolf of Wall Street and War Dogs. But regardless whether or not it was for personal reasons, there’s no denying that Jonah Hill is known for his weight fluctuation.
But recently, Jonah Hill was spotted out and about and we gotta say, he looks the best he has ever looked. At a healthy weight, Jonah is looking great. So let’s look at Jonah Hill’s weight loss journey: then and now.
This photo was taken in May 2017. After gaining 40 pounds for his role in 2015’s War Dogs, Jonah got back in shape.
Jonah hitting the red carpet on January 2017. After shooting War Dogs, Hill asked his 21 Jump Street costar, Channing Tatum, for some fitness tips.
He said on The Tonight Show in August 2016, “I called Channing and said, ‘Hey, if I ate less and go to a trainer, will I get in better shape?”
Hill continued saying, “And he said, “Yes, you dumb, of course you will. It’s the simplest thing in the entire world”
This is Jonah on the red carpet in March 2009. He looks completely different! He told ABC news in 2012: “It was just diet. I wish there was some crazy thing that I did.”
According to US Magazine, giving up beer also helped a ton. This is him in April 2008. He said in a radio interview in 2013, “It’s so annoying because when I don’t drink beer, I get really thin.”
In August 2007, that was when Jonah really rose to fame, playing high school geek, Seth, in the movie Superbad.
He also starred in various films such as Accepted, Knocked Up, This Is the End and The Wolf of Wall Street and many more.
Just this past weekend, Jonah revealed his lean physique in a tight navy T-shirt and jeans while out running according to The Sun.
The 33-year-old was seen walking, showing off his toned arms that were pretty apparent. While he kept a straight face, we’re pretty sure inside he was happy to show off his weight loss.
His first noticeable weight loss was back in 2011 while he filmed Moneyball alongside Brad Pitt. Apparently, Pitt himself helped his co-star shed those pounds and get healthy.
But Jonah gave all the credit of his weight loss to a nutritionist, a “Japanese diet” and growing older. He also connects getting older with getting into better shape. Age gave him a wakeup call.
According to news.com.au, in 2013 the actor said: “I think it’s about the work you are doing. Getting in better shape is a sign of maturity. I think you are taken more seriously.”
Jonah was able to lose more than 40 pounds back then but ended up gaining it back the following months, mainly blaming his love for beer.
According to news.com.au the actor explained: “I went to a nutritionist and I said, ‘I’ll lose weight, I’ll eat healthier or whatever, but figure out how I can drink beer’.”
Last year Jonah attended the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards in January, where he showed off his weight loss. He looks great and we hope he keeps it up!
