Jonah Hill E-mailed Drake His Food Diary By Accident
Jonah Hill has a lot of famous friends — a video of him getting surprised by Leonardo DiCaprio pretending to be a wild fan is currently viral — but one celebrity he’s NOT super close with is chart-owning rapper Drake. As Hill shared with Jimmy Fallon during a visit to The Tonight Show on August 2, this made an accidental e-mail overshare extra embarrassing.
After gained weight for the upcoming War Dogs with Miles Teller, Jonah said he asked his friend and 21 Jump Street costar/super ripped body-haver Channing Tatum for advice on how to slim down (this story is as name-droptastic as it is amusing). Channing directed him to a nutritionist and doctor, who told Jonah to keep a record of his daily food intake — otherwise known as a “food diary” — and email it to the doctor every day for analysis. On a day when he was particularly distracted, Jonah sent his daily record off, and was surprised when he didn’t hear back at all.
As it turns out, he had sent his food diary not to a physician, but to a former Degrassi: The Next Generation actor turned rapper.
“It must’ve been “dr,” because it was a doctor,” Hill said of re-examining his address line later, “and I’d sent it to Drake.”
“So Drake — who I don’t know well at all, I’ve met once — just got an email from me that like, ‘yogurt, salad, chicken,’ and just ‘Jonah’ at the end of it,” he continued.
Though Jonah joked that Drake replied that he’d gone from 0 to 100 calories real quick [REFERENCE!], the “Jumpman” rapper didn’t respond at all. But then, what would you say to a virtual stranger who emails you a grocery list?
And that, Jonah told Jimmy, is how Drake was added to the “long laundry list of people I can never speak to again.”
