Jerry Maguire’s rarely seen child star Jonathan Lipnicki is unrecognisable 26 years after starring alongside Tom Cruise | The Sun

December 26, 2022

HE shot to fame as Renee Zellweger's adorable son who won the heart of Tom Cruise, and the nation, in Jerry Maguire.

Now Jonathan Lipnicki, 32, is barely recognisable – 26 years on from his days as Ray Boyd in the Oscar-winning classic.



With lines including 'the human head weighs eight pounds,' the actor delivered a performance that helped make the 1996 movie a box office hit.

Fast forward 26 years and the tattooed hunk is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Blackbelt, producer and actor.

The ripped star has now become a heart-throb showing off his toned physique and passion for martial arts on his Instagram page.

Among the charities and causes close to his heart, the Jewish star supports anti-Semitism-opposing movements and cancer charities.

Jonathan was catapulted into the limelight playing little Ray Boyd, but that was only the beginning for him.

After Jerry Maguire with Tom Cruise, he won roles in The Single Guy, The Jeff Foxworthy Show as well as episodes of Dawson's Creek and the sitcom, Meego.

Jonathan was soon snapped up to reprise the role in the film's sequel in 2002.

He also played the lead, Tony Thompson, in the 2000 film, The Little Vampire and co-starred with hip-hop rapper Bow Wow in the 2002 sports film, Like Mike.
