Jonah Hill has filed a petition to legally change his name by dropping his surname Feldstein.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the Don’t Look Up star filed for a name change from Jonah Hill Feldstein to Jonah Hill, making his stage name his official legal name.

The 38-year-old actor, whose credits include Superbad, Moneyball, and The Wolf of Wall Street, requested the change this week in a Los Angeles court.

Jonah has a famous sibling in the industry – his sister Beanie – who uses the surname Feldstein professionally. Their late brother Jordan Feldstein, a talent manager, also used the surname professionally before he passed away in 2017.

Jonah isn’t the only actor to file for a name change that suits their stage monikor. Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul, whose last name was Sturtevant, also filed for a legal change to Paul earlier this month.

Aaron’s wife Lauren and their son Ryden Caspian also had requests filed for their last names to be changed to Paul.

According to the publication, Aaron and Lauren described how they were required to name their son at the hospital before changing their minds and naming him Ryden. They also stated they were filing in order to “keep the family name consistent”.
