Jonah Hill Weight Gain: Actor Shows Off Body Transformation In New Pics

In the jaw-dropping “after photo,” Jonah is seen showing off his larger frame while shooting his upcoming film, Arms And The Dudes, which is due out in 2016. Since his breakout roll in 2007’s Superbad, the busy actor’s weight has fluctuated with almost every movie he’s done. Could he have adjusted his physical appearance for his most recent character?

A source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Jonah’s “weight gain is for the character he’s playing right now…He is wearing a body suit.”

Phew! We were worried there for a minute! While his weight has inflated and decreased over the years, Jonah knows what it takes to get his body back in check. He revealed his weight loss secrets when he got down to his slimmest self in 2011.

He told ABC News, “It was just mostly diet. I wish there was some crazy thing that I did, like a pill or a genie or something.”

Has Jonah Hill Ditched His Diet?

While Jonah’s heaviness is the result of a body suit, a new report claims that he’s also said buh-bye to his former healthy lifestyle.

“He was eating sushi when he lost the weight,” an insider told In Touch‘s May 18 issue. “But he’s gone back to his two biggest hang-ups; beer and burgers.”

Hey, we hear that, Mr. Hill! Dieting. Is. Tough. Seriously though, no matter what size he is, we just hope that Jonah is happy and healthy.
