Jerry Maguire, Stuart Little star Jonathan Lipnicki is all grown up

Jonathan Lipnicki was once the most adorable kid in Hollywood, shooting to fame as Renee Zellweger’s son in the 1996 film Jerry Maguire before taking his stardom up a notch three years later with another starring role in Stuart Little.

Now, more than 20 years on from the films, it’s safe to say the former child star has done a fair amount of growing up.

Known in the 90s for his big glasses and even bigger grin – on top of his undoubted talent – these days the 31-year-old is barely recognisable from his early career lighting up the screen.

Lipnicki remains in the industry that rocketed him into the public eye, taking on roles as both an actor and producer.

However there haven’t been as many blockbuster projects that marked his early career.

He’s also added a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt to his resume. His passion for mixed martial arts is obvious from his social media pages, with pictures of the shredded star shared regularly on his Instagram page.

The Californian previously revealed the struggles of growing up as a celebrity, saying fame did not shield him from bullies.

“As a kid/teen I was made fun of relentlessly by some people who are now even my friends on FB,” he said.

“I was told I was a has-been and would never book a job again. I was made to feel like garbage every day of middle school to the point where I had a panic attack every night before school, because I wondered how I would get through the next day.”
