Jonah Hill Epically Shut Down a Reporter Who Asked If He ‘Still Feels Like the Fat Guy’
Don’t go there.
You’ve seen the shocking photos: Jonah Hill isn’t fat anymore. But bare in mind this lesson back from 2014: don’t bring it up to him.
An old interview with the now 33-year-old actor is making the rounds online. At a press junket, Hill is asked by a reporter if he is still considered “the fat guy” in Hollywood?
“Are you still considered ‘the fat guy’ when you go to a party or anything?” the reporter asks brazenly.

Backtracking a bit, he then re-phrases the question more politely: “Cause I run into that a lot, I’m the fat one. Are you the fat guy in Hollywood still, or does everyone look at you and go, ‘Oh, wow! This is great, and now you’re healthy.'”
Still not cool.
Jonah doesn’t lay into the lowly media vulture, making himself look like an asshole in the process. Instead, he brilliantly brushes it off.
“Uh… do you have any other questions… that are smart?”
We wouldn’t blame Hill if he never wanted to talk to the press again. In 2016, a French TV host admitted to Jonah that he was part of her ultimate sex fantasy… only not how you’d think.
“My sexual fantasy would be that we would meet up in a hotel room at night. We would chat, you’d make me laugh, you’d make me laugh a lot…”
So far so good…
“And then all of a sudden you’d bring your friends Leo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt… and then you would leave.”
Ouch! Then again, he had a pitch-perfect response: “I’m glad I came on here to be mocked by a local weather girl.”
So just don’t go there, people.
