Jonah Hill reveals diet struggle

Jonah Hill says beer is his "Achilles' Heel" when it comes to maintaining his new healthy lifestyle.

The comedy actor stunned fans when he unveiled his dramatic 40lbs. weight loss at the beginning of last year.

Jonah - who was famed for his bigger frame - admits to still having a few vices though.

"I tried to be healthier. I still drink beer - that's my Achilles' heel I think. I went to a nutritionist and I said, 'I'll lose weight, I'll eat healthier and whatever, but figure out how I can drink beer,'" he told the Kyle and Jackie O radio show.

"Honestly, I'm not perfect, but I'm trying to be a little healthier, that's it."

Jonah has joked about his penchant for beer. The 28-year-old star likes to think the alcoholic beverage has nutritious qualities.

"It's so annoying because if I don't drink beer I get really thin, and then when I drink beer I get a little bigger," he deadpanned. "You should try beer, it's really good."

Meanwhile, Channing Tatum - Jonah's co-star in new comedy action film 21 Jump Street - has spoken about his diet habits.

The Hollywood hunk is renowned for his impressive physique, but insists he's not strict when it comes to his diet.

"I can promise you I can probably list off a whole gang of stuff yesterday that I put in my stomach. It's ridiculous," he laughed.
