Did Jonah Hill Lose the Funny With His Fat? (VIDEO)

jonah hillEveryone who loves to laugh has heard of Jonah Hill. You may know him as Superbad hilarious teen Seth. Or, think Get Him to the Greek or 40-Year-Old Virgin. Why so much stress on the name recognition? Well, because he looks NOTHING like he did in any of those movies. In fact, the funnyman has lost a significant amount of weight in the last year. He appeared svelte and devilishly handsome at the other night's ESPY Awards, and I'm borderline speechless. 

In my expert opinion, I'd say he's dropped more than 40 pounds. It makes me a little worried though. Sometimes weight loss changes people, you know? What if Jonah's personality changes, he gets more serious roles, and becomes Mr. Suave?

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that he's gotten his rear in gear. But just because he's not as big as he used to be, doesn't mean he's gotta jump the comedic funny fat guy ship. It feels like just yesterday, he looked like this

Ahhhh, there's my laughing buddy. Jonah losing his funny bone would be like peanut butter without jelly or Angelina without Brad. Who would I look to for hilarious one-liners like "You know how many foods are shaped like dicks? The best kinds." Oh, the memories.

He told the Los Angeles Times that losing weight wasn't fun, but he's enjoying it. "If I eat something unhealthy now, I kind of feel a little weird and my body hurts." 

Well, he definitely he has the right attitude about weight loss. Watching the scale is a bad move. But still, is it just me -- or does something seem a little off, personality wise? He seems a lot more serious and uninterested. Perhaps we can blame it on him being out of his element when it comes to British pop culture, and the questions were a little whack. OK, a lot whack.

You can't blame me for loving the Jonah I've gotten to know so far. And, because of my true fandom, if he wants a change of pace and to diversify his acting portfolio, then like his weight loss, I'll support it for sure. Just do me a favor, Jones, and throw me a few one-liners every once in a while, OK?

What do you think of Jonah's New Look?
