Jonah Hill, the star who was first seen as a leading character in Superbad with actor Micheal Cera, then more recently in Get Him to the Greek, has lost weight for an upcoming role.
On the red carpet of the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles, Jonah Hill looked so different that people needed to do a double take when they saw him. It is estimated that he has lost a total of 40 pounds.
Jonah started his weight loss journey earlier this year and as he said to the Los Angeles Times: “It’s not fun. I wouldn’t say it’s the most fun endeavour I’ve ever took on in my life – but it’s important. And I’m enjoying it. If I eat something unhealthy now, I kind of feel a little weird and my body hurts.”
Hill needed to lose weight for his upcoming movie; a thriller called 21 Jump Street. He did it by seeing a nutritionist as well as a personal trainer. Although he was doing it for the role in the movie, Jonah Hill did say that he “thought it was important to be healthier.”
In this video he explains the movie 21 Jump Street, which is a drama but also adds a certain element of comedy. He also talks briefly ab0ut his weight loss.
