Jonah Hill Sheds The Pounds Again


Jonah Hill has got himself in trim once again, by the looks of it.

The ‘Superbad’ star was papped while out and about in Los Angeles looking pretty much half the size he was last year.


While filming the movie 'War Dogs’, Hill had piled on the pounds to play arms dealer Efraim Diveroli opposite Miles Teller.


He slimmed down markedly too when he starred in 'Moneyball’ opposite Brad Pitt in 2012, crediting Japanese food for his transformation.

“It was just mostly diet. I wish there was some crazy thing that I did, like a pill or a genie or something,” he said at the time.


“But it was, unfortunately, I went to see a nutritionist, and he told me what to eat to change my habits and stuff.

“I found that Japanese food was very helpful to me.”

“'I just had a moment in my life where I said I wanted to become a man,” he added. “And that means with my career that with my life, that means with my health.


“I’m almost 30 years old — I’m not a foul-mouthed seventeen-year-old kid who’s trying to get laid or whatever.

“I’m an adult man who takes his work really seriously.”

The forthcoming 'War Dogs’ tells the story of two friends whose arms company secured a $300 million contract from the US government as part of the 'War on Terror’ in 2007, when they were in their early 20s.

The pair’s predeliction for smoking pot earned them the nickname 'the stoner arms dealers’, but things went sour after the pair were convicted of conspiracy and fraud.

Their story was told in a lengthy article in Rolling Stone magazine, and later in the book 'Arms and the Dudes’.

The film, helmed by Todd Phillips, is out this summer. Check out the trailer below.
