Sure—you might know that Jonah Hill owes Judd Apatow a whole lot for the development of his career. And OK—you probably know that Jonah Hill’s character in Superbad was based on his buddy Seth Rogen, but there are plenty of other things you probably DON’T know about the two-time Academy Award nominee. Read on if you’re looking to impress all your friends at your upcoming Oscar Party…
Judd helped, but he REALLY owes it all to Dustin Hoffman!
After befriending The Graduate star’s kids as a teen, Jonah met and impressed Hoffman so much that the veteran actor helped him score his first big screen role in I Heart Huckabees. Bonus Fact: He also dated Dustin’s daughter for 9 months before they split in September 2012.
According to a Billboard article on the platinum selling band, Jordan—who was a family friend of Adam Levine’s and a Junior Agent at ICM—stopped by the band’s recording session one day and was so impressed, he quit his job to manage them full time. Not a bad bet, huh?
He grew up in Hollywood and went to the Crossroads School in Santa Monica with some very well-known actors.
He has a girlfriend!
While the press may not pay as much attention to his romantic life as they do his former co-stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, Jonah has his own little piece on the side, a very pretty brunette named Isabelle McNally.
He perfectly curates who he follows on Twitter.
He may have 4 Million followers on twitter, but his “following” count is stuck strictly at 0.
