SHOW him the money

Jonathan Lipnicki, a former child actor, looks completely different from the adorable child star who won hearts with Stuart Little and Jerry Maguire.



Jonathan Lipnicki robbed Jerry Maguire when he was six years old

He was six years old when he took the role of Ray Boyd in Oscar-nominated film.

The animated classic Stuart Little and Doctor Dolittle followed.

He's 31 years old and he's adding something new to his career.

He has posted snaps of his new life on Instagram - as a ripped MMA fight fighter, which is quite a contrast to the sweet boy who charmed movie fans in the late 1990s.

Lipnicki started martial arts training as a child after his father, a fighter, suggested that he could teach him how boxing.

After 14 years of training, he received his black belt in Jiujitsu in 2020.

His dad was a promoter for MMA, and he became a huge fan of the sport as a child.

He told ESPN that his family owns a promotion company for MMA, so it's a family deal.

"Because that, I have given my mom many fighters to fight at a show. Right now, I'm training one of my friends -- he's against a jiu jitsu guy. So, I'm his sparring partner. If someone is better than me, I won’t be a good sparring buddy."

Lipnicki used his combat training by escorting orthodox Jews into temple after anti-semitic attacks in the US.

Lipnicki and Remy Franklin formed groups outside synagogues after a robbery at a Los Angeles restaurant.

He told TMZ that there have been "a lot of antisemitic hate crime and violence towards Jews."

"He (Remy), started this group, where we decided that people would get home safely and to the synagogue safe.

Many of us are either martial artists or have our own martial arts gyms, and not all of them are Jewish. It's people who want to help others.




Lipnicki has gone through a remarkable transformation

"Everyone should be able to worship without discrimination."

He said, "Bullies or people who encourage hatred don't like it when there's presence there and I believe having a presence can be a great deterrent."

Lipnicki is an actor, having starred in several short films. He was also a star in the reality TV series Celebs Go Dancing and Worst Cooks in America.
