Since the actor, 33, rose to fame as a high school geek in 2007’s Superbad, his weight has yo-yoed for various roles. Back in 2011, he lost 40 pounds before starring in Moneyball with Brad Pitt. Hill has credited clean eating, including a Japanese food diet, for his weight loss.

“It was just mostly diet,” he admitted to ABC News in 2012. “I wish there was some crazy thing that I did, like a pill or a genie or something. But it was, unfortunately, I went to see a nutritionist, and he told me what to eat to change my habits and stuff. I found that Japanese food was very helpful to me.”

Hill ultimately gained back the 40 pounds to film War Dogs in 2015. To get in shape again, Hill hired a nutritionist who encouraged him to maintain a food journal — which he accidentally once emailed to Drake — and he enlisted help from his 21 Jump Street costar Channing Tatum. “I called Channing Tatum and said, ‘Hey, if I ate less and go to a trainer, will I get in better shape?’” the L.A. native told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show in August. “And he said, ‘Yes, you dumb motherf—er, of course you will. It’s the simplest thing in the entire world.”
