Jonah Hill has had one hell of a makeover.

The Wolf of Wall Street star (33) has struggled with his weight over the years, but seems to have a firm hold on his new muscular physique. Hill, whose weight has fluctuated since he first shot to fame in 2007's Superbad, was pictured earlier this month looking strong and lean in New York.

"I found that Japanese food was very helpful to me."

Last year, he told Jimmy Fallon that he sought help from 21 Jump Street co-star Channing Tatum on staying in shape.

"I called Channing [Tatum] and said: 'Hey, if I eat less and go to a trainer, will I get in better shape?' And he said: 'Yes you dumb motherf*****, of course you will, it's the simplest thing in the entire world.'"
