Jonathan Lipnicki, the actor who played five-year old Ray Boyd in Jerry Maguire, is now a 23-year-old mixed martial arts fighter with the kind of eight-pack stomach that looks like a corn maze up close.
He’s also pretty normal, considering the fact that a large number of child stars before him either spun out of control or drowned in their own egos.
Cursed by “child actor” syndrome, he’s fighting back against some common misconceptions in a new video called “You Used To Be Cute”.
“I don’t do drugs!” he insists. “I’ve never done drugs, I’ve never punched out a tourist. I went to public school! I played little league baseball!” “Yeah, guys from prison still send me fan mail, but I’m just a normal white kid from the suburbs!”
