Actor Jonah Hill has made his mark being an overweight comedian, but he’s going to attempt to break the same stereotype he helped further — “no one wants to see a physically fit man do comedy.” The quote, a line from his 2009 performance in the film Funny People, seemed to encapsulate a common undertone in comedy, or at least one that Hill’s character was perpetuating.
As of several appearances over the past couple months, it was becoming noticeable that the actor was losing some weight, but no appearance more noticeable than ESPY Red Carpet walk yesterday. The actor isn’t making a huge fuss (feel like such a tabloid writer), with LA Times quoting his explanation as, “Yeah I started working out and eating healthier — I thought it was important to be healthier.”
As many of those who ween off their regimen of unhealthy foods will profess, Jonah Hill mentioned, “If I eat something unhealthy now…I feel a little weird.” Good for you Jonah Hill! Enjoy being a #foodbeast, but ain’t nothing wrong with being healthy and active!
