Jonah Hill has been causing some concern as his weight continues to increase—and it sounds like he is finally on the right track to getting back in shape. And no, he is not hiring a celebrity trainer to fight the pounds—he’s looking to none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson!
A source previously shared with OK! exclusively that Jonah is now “well over 300 pounds,” which is certainly his heaviest weight ever. But that may change as another source reveals Jonah plans to cast Dwayne in his next Jump Street film and wants to ask him about more than just his acting chops.
Given how often Dwayne hits the gym (do you see those veins?!), there is no way Jonah can have the former pro wrestler on his set without asking for nutrition tips!
“He and Channing Tatum, who are co-producers on 23 Jump Street are courting Dwayne to star in the new movie and Jonah’s been grilling him on all his diet and fitness tips,” says the insider. And we’re sure Dwayne has a lot to share, as he has been very vocal over the years about his love for bodybuilding and is a self-proclaimed “gym rat.”
But it’s not like Jonah has never been successful at losing weight on his own. Back in 2011, he dropped a ton of weight and was clearly hitting the gym regularly. The weight began piling back on though, especially over the last few months.
And now his health is in the “danger zone,” says the insider.
Considering Dwayne was not always as fit as he is now, he likely understands the challenges Jonah is facing as he tries to make diet and exercise a part of his daily routine.
It also helps that Dwayne is a Jonah fan! Says the source, “Dwayne really likes Jonah and has even offered to work out with him and hook him up with a decent trainer. Jonah’s terrified of course, but totally up for it. He’s really got no choice.” Do you think Dwayne will be able to get Jonah is fighting form? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
