Jonah Hill dropped a substantial amount of weight recently and hasn’t been shy about showing off his slimmer figure from coast to coast. Last week, the Wolf of Wall Street actor looked damn near unrecognizable while hitting the streets in a fitted t-shirt in NYC, and on Friday, Jonah was spotted putting his biceps on display in a blue tank top while picking up a smoothie before hitting the gym in LA. Jonah reportedly hired a nutritionist and kept a food journal to lose weight after gaining 40 pounds for his role in the 2015 crime film War Dogs, and also got some fitness advice from his 21 Jump Street costar Channing Tatum.
Jonah Hill showed off a slimmer figure while on a stroll in NYC on Saturday, and we have to be honest: we barely recognized the guy. Sporting a fitted blue t-shirt and black jeans, Jonah gave the public a glimpse of his biceps and chiseled chest; the actor recently hired a nutritionist and reportedly kept a food journal to lose weight after gaining 40 pounds for his role in the 2015 crime film War Dogs. He also enlisted the help of his 21 Jump Street costar Channing Tatum to slim down. «I called Channing Tatum and said, ‘Hey, if I ate less and go to a trainer, will I get in better shape?'» he revealed during a Tonight Show appearance in August 2016, adding, «And he said, ‘Yes, you dumb motherf*cker, of course you will. It’s the simplest thing in the entire world.» Clearly, Channing’s advice has paid off.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill formed quite a special bond while filming 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street, and honestly, how could they not? When you spend your days pretending to do hardcore drugs and have orgies with women aboard airplanes, we imagine you become friends pretty quickly. During the film’s press tour and that year’s award season, we got to see Leo and Jonah’s bond in real life. They hit red carpets together, shared a few cocktails, and made each other laugh while goofing off during fancy events. But that was just the beginning. Leo made a surprise appearance during Jonah’s Saturday Night Live opening monologue in 2014 (they re-created that famous «Jack, I’m flying» scene from Titanic), and he pulled an epic prank on Jonah when he pretended to be an excited fan taking pictures on the streets of NYC in 2016. Leo is known for his large group of guy friends, or the «P*ssy Posse,» but his bond with Jonah is definitely one of our favorites.
Jonah Hill was involved in a car crash in downtown LA on Saturday, People reports. Fortunately, the actor appeared to be uninjured, and was alone when his Audi collided with another vehicle. Although it’s unclear what caused the accident, both vehicles were damaged and towed away from the scene. An onlooker claims Jonah was «shaken,» adding, «You could see he was upset and nervous.» Jonah’s rep has yet to respond to the news, but the Los Angeles Police Department told People that there was no evidence of a police report filed regarding the incident.
Michael Cera and Jonah Hill proved that their hilarious friendship is still going strong when they were spotted out and about together in NYC on Monday. The actors, who played best friends in 2007’s Superbad, smiled and laughed as they made their way around town. While Michael tried to maintain a low profile in shades and a beanie, Jonah wore black pants and a plaid shirt while showing off his bushy beard. The pair’s outing is just the latest in a long line of TV and movie reunions so far this year. Not only did Friday Night Lights‘ Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler snap a quick selfie together at the Emmys earlier this month, but the cast of Will & Grace also made fans freak out with their social media posts this week.
Jonah Hill is currently on a promotional tour for his new movie, War Dogs, and while it’s mostly been glamorous red carpet appearances and run-of-the-mill media interviews, his latest appearance on a French TV show was indescribably awkward. During an interview on Le Grand Journal on Friday, the show’s host, Ornella Fleury, poked fun at the actor and his usually handsome costars. «It’s when I saw you get sodomized by a three-meter-tall demon in This Is the End that I told myself, now that’s the man of my dreams!» she said, before he replied, «And you? I hear you get sodomized pretty often.» She then continued, «Anyway, that’s why I have a sexual fantasy with you, Jonah. All I said is ‘sexual fantasy,’ and you guys laugh. Guess I don’t need to finish the joke.»
She then delivered the final blow, saying, «My sexual fantasy would be that we’d meet up in a hotel room at night. We would chat, you’d make me laugh; you’d make me laugh a lot. And then all of a sudden, you’d bring your friends [Leonardo] DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, and then you’d go away.» Looking visibly annoyed, Jonah responded with a blow of his own, saying, «I’m glad I came to this show to get ridiculed by a local weather girl — it’s nice.» Ornella has since apologized for her comments, saying she thought she was just joking around with friends, after Jonah reportedly canceled the rest of his French press for the movie. See if you get can get through the whole thing in the video above!
In an incident on French television while promoting War Dogs on Friday, Jonah Hill, an actor with teeth like the keys of a piano, cancelled all of his appearances in France after a comedian made what is arguably a pretty dumb joke.

Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer is a YA book that starts with a bang…literally. A member of the senior class explodes during pre-calc, just bursts into blood and little pieces. Then a second, and a third spontaneously combust too. Add a witty, sassy narrator named Mara to this strange premise, and you can begin to see why Cannonballer Caitlin gave this one five stars.
