The Kid From Jerry Maguire Knows He "Used To Be" Cute

Did you know the human head weighs eight pounds?
After Jerry Maguire came out in 1996, everyone in America did. Sure, people quoted "Show me the money," but it was Renée Zellweger's character's son who stole the show. The pint-sized tot with a runny nose and Coke-bottle glasses damn near ran away with the movie when he sweetly exchanged facts with Jerry Maguire.

Yet, as sand slips through the hourglass, so goes the lifecycle of a once-cute child actor's progress. Lipnicki worked sparingly for years. But, for the most part, he had a regular childhood, falling off people's radar for most of his teens.
Lipnicki resurfaced in the news in 2011 when photos of his incredibly chiseled body made the rounds. After beefing up for a role in an indie film, all tabloids and TMZ wanted to talk about was "what happened to the kid from Jerry Maguire?"
Now 23, Jonathan Lipnicki is no fool. He knows all too well what it means to bear the stigma of being a former child actor. In this new parody called "You Used to be Cute," Lipnicki pokes fun at the experience of being remembered for just one part, so very long ago.
Consider this a PSA: Should you ever run into Jonathan, do not ask if he knows that the human head weighs eight pounds. (Entertainment Weekly)
