Brad Pitt Responsible for Co-Star Jonah Hill’s Weight Loss?

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


Jonah Hill‘s Moneyball co-star Brad Pitt is responsible for the comedian’s drastic weight loss, says Star magazine.

The mag claims Pitt nicknamed Hill “Fat Man” on the set, and “started lecturing Jonah about taking care of his body, eating healthy and getting regular exercise.”

According to a supposed “source” for the tabloid, Pitt even “hired a personal trainer” for his co-star, and also “bought Jonah more than $1,500 in new, casual clothes as an incentive after Jonah shed the first 15 lbs.”

“Jonah says he’s forever indebted to Brad for helping him,” adds the alleged “source.”

Actually, he’s not.

In a recent interview, Hill revealed that he got into shape because he “thought it was important to be healthier.”

In any case, a source close to Hill tells Gossip Cop the story is completely untrue.

Star strikes out again.
