Los Angeles, CA, United States (Celebrity News Service) - Jonah Hill says losing over 40 pounds for a new movie role hasn't been "the most fun endeavor I've ever took in my life."

The 27-year-old "Get Him To The Greek" star looked incredible Wednesday night in Los Angeles at the ESPY Awards, appearing slimmer and much healthier than ever, reports USA Today.

Hill presented the award for best game at the sports-themed ceremony and to promote his upcoming baseball film, "Moneyball," with Brad Pitt.

But Hill had reportedly been on a diet since December in preparation for his part in the new film, "21 Jump Street," a remake of the 1987 TV show that starred Johnny Depp and Holly Robinson Peete.

He hired a nutritionist and a personal trainer to help him with the transformation.

Last week, the buzz wasn't only about Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, attending the BAFTA's "Brits to Watch" event in downtown Los Angeles.

Hill turned heads on the red carpet, but admitted to the Los Angeles Times that losing weight "is not fun."

"I wouldn't say it's the most fun endeavor I've ever took on in my life, but it's important," he said. "If I eat something unhealthy now, I kind of feel a little weird and my body hurts."

When asked about the chance to mingle with the royal couple at the event, the "Superbad" star said he "thought it was a completely unique experience."

"Of course I'd want to meet them. I've never met a prince or a princess before. I met Prince -- the singer."
