In July 2011, Hill had a dramatic weight drop. Onlookers and reporters noted his presence at the 2011 ESPN Espy Awards. He credited his success to working with a nutritionist and a trainer and making significant changes to his diet. Hill said he slimmed down to better his casting prospects for substantial roles.
Early in his career, Hill was often mistaken for his friend and fellow comedian Seth Rogen. He had trouble shaking this misconception until he appeared in “Get Him to the Greek,” the sequel to “Superbad,” in 2010. By then, audiences had learned to distinguish between the two buddies.

Jonah Hill Career
Hill got his start performing with a few different New York theaters. Two of Dustin Hoffman’s children afterward became his buddies and raved about him to their famous father. Hill got his start in the industry thanks to Hoffman casting him in his film “I Heart Huckabees.” Soon after, she was cast in several more films, including Judd Apatow’s first feature, 2009’s “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” Later, in 2007’s “Knocked Up,” Apatow gave Hill a more significant role.
In the 2007 comedy “Superbad,” Hill co-starred with Michael Cera. The film was the beginning of a successful career for both of them. As SNL’s host in 2008, he was a significant figure in the show’s history. Apatow directed his third film, “Funny People,” in which he co-starred with Seth Rogen and Adam Sandler.
In 2009, Hill worked as an associate producer on the Sacha Baron Cohen parody Bruno. Jonah turned down a lead role in The Hangover to work on Cyrus with the Duplass brothers in 2010. Hill’s animated series Allen Gregory for Fox was canceled on January 8, 2012, after receiving several negative reviews.
Against Brad Pitt in the 2011 baseball film “Moneyball,” Jonah received acclaim for his supporting role. He received his first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Moneyball.” In the 2012 film “21 Jump Street,” Hill featured with Channing Tatum. With both audiences and critics applauding, the film was a commercial triumph. Another major break came in 2012 with Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” for which he was nominated for Oscars, Golden Globes, and BAFTAs.
More praise and recognition were given to Jonah’s portrayal as Donnie Azoff in the 2012 Martin Scorsese/Leonardo DiCaprio film “The Wolf of Wall Street” 2013. His act earned him an MTV Movie Award and another Oscar nomination. In an interview with Howard Stern, Hill stated he would have done “anything in the world” to be in a Scorsese film, so he didn’t mind that he was paid the SAG minimum of $60,000 for his role.

U.S.-born comedian, writer, producer, and actor Jonah Hill is a household name. His fortune is estimated at $60,000,000. To a large extent, Jonah’s fame may be attributed to his friendships with other comedians like Seth Rogen, Michael Cera, and James Franco. In 2010, Jonah spent just under $2 million for a home in Los Angeles.
He made $3.65 million upon the sale of this property in 2015. Coincident with the sale, Jonah spent $9.2 million on a penthouse in Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood. In March 2022, Jonah listed his NoHo condo for $11 million. In September 2019, Jonah spent $6.8 million on a Santa Monica, California, home. In October of 2021, he made a $7.2 million profit selling this home.
In May of 2021, Jonah dropped $9,000,000 for a home in the secure Malibu Colony community. This home was sold by Richard and Laurie Stark, the minds behind and owners of the enormously successful Chrome Hearts retail firm. Oddly enough, Richard and Laurie’s daughter sold his Santa Monica home in the same month in 2019 (September).
