Jonah Hill Has Perfect Response To Reporter's Question About His Weight
It's by no means a recent story, but a 2014 interview with Jonah Hill has resurfaced and deservedly so.
The American actor, who impressed many with his weight loss, was talking at a press conference for local radio shows to discuss his new animated series, Allen Gregory.
The reporter in question starts by asking an appropriate question about his weight loss: "What made you decide to make the change?"
"I just decided one day I wanted to be healthier, I went and saw a nutrionist, that's what I did, and stuck to it," replied the 40-Year-Old Virgin and Click star.
However, what followed out of the reporter's mouth was not clever.
The follow-up question is asked: "But are you still considered 'the fat guy'? When you go to a party or anything, because I run into that a lot, I'm the fat one, so are you 'the fat guy' in Hollywood still or is everybody like, 'look at you' and like, 'oh wow, this is great', because now you're healthy."
Throughout the question, Hill looks confused, almost stunned at the brass of the reporter.
Simply, he responds: "Do you have any other questions, that are smart?" Blanking the reporter in the process.
The video was 're-released' on Twitter by @gyllenhaaaal, and has since had over 68,000 retweets and 209,000 likes.
As you can imagine, the support for Jonah Hill was epic...

Earlier in 2016, Hill appeared to have lost even more weight.
When speaking to ABC news, he revealed exactly how he'd lost the weight - although, you've been warned, it's not that exciting.
It was just mostly diet.
"I wish there was some crazy thing that I did, like a pill or a genie or something, but I went to see a nutritionist, and he told me what to eat and to change my habits and stuff.
"I found that Japanese food was very helpful to me."

He also said that giving up beer was a massive help. While appearing on a radio show, he said: "I went to a nutritionist and I said, 'I'll lose weight, I'll eat healthier and whatever, but figure out how I can drink beer'.
"It's so annoying because when I don't drink beer, I get really really thin. Then when I drink beer, I get a little bigger."
Annoying indeed, Jonah.
