You probably remember Jonathan Lipnicki as “the kid from Jerry Maguire“, even though he’s been in a quite a few other films since. Plus, he’s all grown up now – and is going to start dating regular folk… on UK reality TV show, Celebs Go Dating.
Jonathan Lipnicki, who since the 1996 Tom Cruise movie has grown up into a major 27-years-old hottie, has now – as The Sun reports – made the flight from the US to the UK, in order to take part in Channel 4’s Celebs Go Dating, a reality TV show where celebrities date “normal” people in front of the cameras.
“As a kid he charmed audiences with his cute persona”, a source told The Sun, “Now he’s hoping to charm them in a different way and find love.”
Last year, Jonathan opened up about the bullying he had to go through when he was a kid. “I was told I was a has-been and would never book a job again”, he revealed back then. 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.”
These days, however, Jonathan is looking mighty fine. On a trip to the Dead Sea earlier this year, his bulge made some headlines, and now we just enjoy the photos and videos on his Instagram account, such as this one:

My Fight. I have been overcoming obstacles my whole life. I started chasing my dreams when I was five years old and I have failed way more than I have succeeded. Being a martial artist has been the glue that has kept me together on this rollercoaster. I will fight to achieve my goals, and I will not listen to the doubters. I will turn all negativity into fuel to reach higher. What do you fight for? Shot by @just_julian
