Jonah Hill was snapped beaming broadly as he showed off a radically new look on an outing in Malibu, following accusations of emotional abuse.
The Hollywood actor, who has come under fire recently from his ex-girlfriend Sarah Brady for his past ‘misogynistic’ behaviour, was seen out soaking up California’s sunshine on Saturday afternoon.
The Superbad actor, 39, opted for a light blue T-shirt and a pair of dark brown trousers for the outing, which he wore with slip-on white canvas shoes.
Most dramatic though, was his freshly shaven look, as the performer showed off a new buzzcut hairstyle in place of the longer hair he is most often seen with.
He was also modelling a much shorter, closer beard, far removed from the bushy version he has usually favoured.
The star’s arm tattoos were on full display thanks to his short-sleeved shirt, and he was all smiles as he headed back to his car through the car park with what appeared to be an electronics purchase in his hand.
Hill was blasted on social media last month by surf instructor Brady as a ‘misogynist’ and a ‘narcissist’ during the course of their relationship, which lasted around a year in 2021.
In the messages that were screenshotted and posted on Instagram by Brady, Hill was seemingly laying down his boundaries when it came to his ‘romantic partnership’, which she claimed was a ‘misuse’ of the term.
The actor allegedly asked his then-girlfriend to remove any surfing photos from her Instagram which showed her ‘a** in a thong’ and when she said she had deleted ‘all the posts’, Hill allegedly told her it was a ‘good start’ but she didn’t ‘seem to get’ his point.
In another screenshot, Hill, who stepped back from promoting his movies last summer after ‘exacerbating’ anxiety attacks, allegedly set out his ‘plain and simple’ conditions for maintaining their relationship, including stating he didn’t want Brady to be ‘surfing with men’, or ‘to model’.
Brady accused her former partner – who became a father for the first time earlier this year when girlfriend Olivia Millar gave birth to their baby – of using mental health issues to ‘control’ her, but insisted she didn’t necessarily think her former partner is a ‘terrible person’.
She wrote: ‘Someone being an emotionally abusive partner doesn’t mean they’re a terrible person (often stems from their own trauma).
‘At the same time, it doesn’t mean it’s OK.’
Hill has yet to comment on the accusations.
Since then, former Zoey 101 actress Alexa Nikolas, 31, suggested on Twitter that Hill had ‘slammed’ her against a door and ‘shoved his tongue down my throat’ without her consent when she was 16 years old at a party hosted by Justin Long.
However, Hill’s lawyers issued a denial on the star’s behalf, telling Page Six it was ‘a complete fabrication’.
His attorney Marty Singer also told Deadline that the alleged incident ‘never happened’ and deemed Nikolas to be a ‘demonstrably unreliable’ source and ‘a serial accuser who has made assorted accusations against multiple men in the entertainment industry’.
Representatives for Dodgeball actor Long also insisted he had ‘no knowledge’ about the alleged incident that supposedly happened at his home.
‘This is the first time Justin has been made aware of this situation that allegedly happened nearly two decades ago,’ they told Page Six.
‘While Justin is sympathetic to any and all victims of any abuse, the simple fact remains he has no knowledge of what may or may not have happened concerning Ms. Nikolas.’
The Don’t Look Up actor was set to appear on the wrestling giant’s flagship Monday night programme back in 2011 during a period where WWE were having various celebrity guest hosts – such as Hugh Jackman, Bob Barker and even The Muppets – but he never featured on the broadcast.
The Hardcore Legend claimed: ‘He’s not a wrestling fan. There was a reason why Jonah Hill was advertised as the guest GM and it never aired. The guys hated working with him.’
Speaking on an episode of his Foley Is Pod podcast back in November, Foley suggested people had the impression that Hill ‘didn’t want to be there’.
‘There were some like Hugh Jackman [and] The Muppets, they loved it. Almost everyone was a good experience,’ he added.
‘Jonah Hill was one that didn’t even make the air because he apparently just didn’t want to be there, and it showed. I think somebody saw him mouthing to his agent, “Get me out of here.”‘
