US actor Jonah Hill has starred in many hit films - including the likes of The Wolf of Wall Street and 21 Jump Street.

The star prefers to keep his personal life out of the limelight but he recently welcomed his first baby with partner Olivia Miller.

His most recent breakup with former girlfriend Sarah Brady has been all over the media, with her alleging he has been emotionally abusive.

Jonah's weight has been up and down over the years for his various roles. His self esteem has suffered as a consequence of his body image. "I don’t think I ever took my shirt off in a pool until I was in my mid 30s even in front of family and friends," he told Ellen DeGeneres. 

Jonah Hill's childhood

Jonah was born to costume designer mother Sharon Lyn and accountant to Guns N' Roses, Richard Fieldstein. His older brother is Jordan Feldstein, the manager of Maroon 5 and Robin Thicke, so it seems like Jonah was exposed to showbiz life from a young age. Dustin Hoffman actually helped his rise to fame inviting him in for an audition. 

The star grew up in Cheviot Hills, LA, where he continues to live to this day.
