21 Major Celebrity Weight Loss Successes


2. Jonah Hill

After seeing a nutritionist and changing his diet, Hill lost 40 pounds before his role alongside Brad Pitt in Moneyball. He cites enjoying Japanese cuisine like sushi is helping him shed the weight but says alcohol is his biggest obstacle. Jonah Hill Feldstein was born in Los Angeles, the son of Sharon Lyn, a costume designer and fashion stylist, and Richard Feldstein, a tour accountant for Guns N’ Roses.

After graduating from high school, Hill left California to attend Bard College, where he studied music and sports. He began writing and performing in plays while at college in New York, and surprisingly managed to get himself introduced to Dustin Hoffman, who helped him get an audition for his first film role in I Heart Huckabees (2004). Brief appearance in Judd Apatow’s directorial debut The 40-Year-Old Virgin, was a turning point for this young actor.

He eventually starred in almost all of the Apatow’s movies: Ben Stone’s roommate in Knocked Up, virgin video game tester in the comedy “Grandma’s Boy”, an uncredited role of Dewey Cox’s grown-up brother Nate Cox in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, and leading roles in the Apatow-produced Superbad and Get Him to the Greek.

Hill has wanted to be a writer since he was young, dreaming of someday joining the writing teams of The Simpsons, Saturday Night Live and The Larry Sanders Show.
