Jonah Hill isn't necessarily the first Hollywood star you'd picture as the type to be working out, but as these pictures of him at work in a boxing gym show, he's doing it. And doing it well.
The 33 year-old, who made his name in comedic gems such as Superbad and Knocked Up, was known for having a larger frame - especially in those early movies - but an appearance on Saturday Night Live last weekend, heckling James Franco's opening monologue alongside Seth Rogen, saw him looking like a completely different person.
The impetus for his impressive transformation came after he gained weight for the movie War Dogs. So naturally Jonah did what we all wish we could, asking friend and 21 Jump Street co-star Channing Tatum a simple question.
According to the Mirror, Jonah said: "I called Channing Tatum, and said, 'Hey, if I ate less and go to a trainer, will I get in better shape?'"
Channing's reply was straight and to the point. "He said, 'Yes, you dumb motherfucker, of course you will, it's the simplest thing in the entire world.'" To be fair, Jonah probably could have answered that question for himself.
But it worked. As he demonstrated his new physique, he looked like the picture of health, and a far cry from the man he used to be.
But then, Jonah has always been good at changing his appearance. The most recent example of this is the staggering transformation he went through for his role in Netflix series Maniac, which resulted in a whole bunch of memes like this one:
Of course, his new look has got the Twitterverse buzzing, too:

Wonder if we'll even recognise Jonah next time we see him. Probably not, to be honest.
