Jonah Hill is Seth Rogen’s awkward sidekick no longer — not since the formerly pudgy comic slimmed down and started taking on more serious roles, like his Golden Globe-nominated part in “Moneyball.”
Word has it that his style matches the shift. Hill’s gone from slumming it in basement blogger duds to a full-on embrace of the skinny tie, according to GQ’s “Celebrity Style Evolution”.
Hill recently told Fino Man, a new online men’s magazine launched by former Vogue fashion accessories editor Filipa Fino, that Freemans Sporting Club and Rag & Bone are his go-to labels and that he bought a Rolex Daytona watch in honor of Paul Newman. The star also said his style icon is Steve McQueen. Fino Man makes its debut today.
Does this mean Hill, who once said “it’s harder to be funny if you’re handsome,” has abandoned raunchy comedy for good?
The Shmooze certainly hopes not. We’re glad he’s traded his t-shirts for tuxedos, but hope he continues to write and produce the goofy, coming-of-age comedies that won our hearts in the first place.
