Despite wearing an oversized coat, Jonah’s weight loss transformation is hard to miss. He was also out looking super sexy (and muscular) in NYC this past summer. The 33-year-old has been shedding pounds steadily since sporting a heavier figure last year for a film role. Watch the video below to see the slimmed down Jonah today!
He previously turned heads in a green sweatshirt and black shorts during an LA outing in May. Since packing on weight for his 2016 movie War Dogs, the California native appears to have dropped it all, plus a little extra. The last time the comedian lost a significant amount of weight was in 2011, around the time his Oscar-nominated movie, Moneyball, was released.
Jonah revealed what prompted his drastic slim down. “I gained weight for this movie War Dogs and then I wanted to get in better shape, so I called Channing Tatum, and said, ‘Hey, if I ate less and go to a trainer, will I get in better shape?’ And he said, ‘Yes, you dumb motherf–ker, of course, you will, it’s the simplest thing in the entire world.’”
When talking about his initial weight loss, the Golden Globe nominee shared, “I wish there was some crazy thing that I did, like a pill or a genie or something. 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. Being healthier came along with maturity and it’s hard because a lot of times people want you to be the guy you were when they met you. And I love doing funny movies, but I want to mature, literally, in how I treat myself.”
It looks like those long walks with his French Bulldog Carmela are really paying off! For a look at Jonah’s transformation over the years, keep scrolling through the gallery below.
