Jonah Hill has decided to change his name and the Superbad actor has filed a petition to legally drop his surname, according to the latest reports.

The Wolf of the Wall Street actor, 38, whose real name is Jonah Hill Feldstein, applied to change his surname and officially go by his stage name last week in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, the legal documents also noted Jonah “request that the court decree the following name changes”, before listing the proposed change.

Jonah has one sister, actress Beanie Feldstein, whose first names are Elizabeth Greer.

The Don’t Look Up actor isn’t the only star to have attempted to be known by his stage name in recent months.

Earlier in November, Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul filed a legal petition to change his own name from Aaron Paul Sturtevant, dropping his real surname and adopting Paul.

His wife, actor Lauren Parsekian, also filed to officially take on Paul as her own name. At the same time, Paul filed to change the name of their seven-year-old son to Ryden Caspian Paul.
