Hollywood comedian Jonah Hill has been at the top of the comedy business for over a decade, from his early roles in films such as Superbad (2007) and Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) to the Jump Street film series, in which he starred alongside Channing Tatum. Hill, who has received two Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actor, doesn’t look like he’s about to give up his job or perhaps lose touch with his brand, as he remains a household name with his recent roles in Sausage Party (2016) and Maniac (2018).
Hill was born on December 20, 1983, in Los Angeles, California, as the middle child of three children of Sharon Lyn (née Chalkin) and Richard Feldstein as Jonah Hill Feldstein. His parents, originally from New York, found work in Hollywood and decided to raise their children there. They lived in the affluent neighborhood of Cheviot Hills because Hill attended the Brentwood School. He later moved to the Crossroads School before graduating in 2002.
For his college education, Jonah Hill moved to New York where he attended Bard College before joining the New School and then the University of Colorado at Boulder. During this time, Hill began writing his own plays, which he was occasionally allowed to perform. His big breakthrough, however, came through his friendship with the children of multiple Golden Globe and Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman. Hoffman’s children introduced Hill to their father, who was impressed by his talent and encouraged him to audition for a role in the comedy I Heart Huckabees (2004), in which Hill made his film debut and the rest became history.
Weight Loss Journey
Jonah Hill has gained and lost weight in the past. He is reported to have lost more than 40 pounds in 2011 to gain the role of Peter Brand over Brad Pitt in Moneyball. He did this by working with a coach and adjusting his diet. By 2015, however, Hill seemed to have achieved a huge weight gain, which is said to be due to his role in War Dogs (2016). After filming the movie, Hill went back to the gym and began to lose weight again.
Jonah Hill’s Net Worth
According to the population ar website, Celebrity Net Worth, Jonah Hill is said to have an estimated net worth of 45 million dollars. He was able to acquire this wealth through his various jobs in front of and behind the camera as a producer, screenwriter, and voiceover artist. Between June 2014 and June 2015, the actor was ranked 28th on Forbes Magazine’s list of the world’s highest-paid actors in The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).
Family – Brother
Jonah Hill has two siblings; his brother Jordan Feldstein, who was born in 1977 and worked as a music manager, and his sister Beanie Feldstein, who was born in 1993 and works as an actress. She starred in films such as Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) and Lady Bird (2017).
In December 2017 Jordan, who founded Career Artist Management, a music management company that included big names such as Robin Thicke, Maroon 5, Adam Levine, and Elle King on its list, and served as CEO, died after a heart attack.
Does Jonah Hill Have A Girlfriend Or Wife?
Jonah Hill has never been married, so there is no woman to talk about. However, the comedic actor has been associated with a number of Hollywood beauties, including actress Isabelle McNally and Dustin Hoffman’s daughter, Ali Hoffman.
In late 2017, Hill began dating a mysterious blonde woman who was later identified as Erin Galpern, born in Dallas, Texas. The couple seemed inseparable, as they were spotted together everywhere. They also exchanged photos through social media of the vacation they spent together in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, indicating that their relationship was flourishing.
This no longer seems to be the case, as Hill seems to have moved on to another lady, Gianna Santos. Gianna Santos, who is said to have graduated from Fordham University in 2011, works for the clothing company KITH as a stylist and producer. The new couple was photographed separately on the streets of New York and showed huge amounts of PDAs, a sign that the actor may have found a caregiver.
