From chubby-funny-guy actors getting ripped, to country divas morphing in size, plenty of stars have transformed their lives and bodies. Some actors have to gain or lose for an onscreen role, while other celebrities undertake rigorous lifestyle changes (or lack thereof in some cases). Read on for a roundup of the most dramatic celebrity transformations–both good and bad!
Jonah Hill, Before: Superbad And Pretty Big
Jonah rose to fame by playing funny fat guy roles in movies like Superbad. He didn’t stay big for long, though. He shed 40 pounds from his 250-pound frame in 2011; though he later gained weight for another movie role, he went back to a slimmer size after that, too.
A New Lifestyle And Lost Weight
“I do a lot of push-ups, running, and sit-ups,” Jonah told Esquire in 2011. When the interviewer mentioned that he imagined Jonah’s weight loss to be “a three-digit number,” Jonah replied, “I don’t think about stuff like that.”
Jonah reportedly asked his nutritionist for one favor: “I said, ‘I’ll lose weight, I’ll eat healthier and whatever, but figure out how I can drink beer.’”
