Lipnicki is also trained in mixed martial arts and spends a lot of time at the gym...obviously. Courtesy of TumblrThough he earned critical acclaim in the Oscar winning Jerry Maguire, Lipnicki stepped out of the spotlight to attend high school and lead a normal life. "There are a lot of misconceptions when you disappear as a child actor. 'Are they on drugs?', 'Are they partying?', and that's just not me." The 23-year-old is staying busy and making his way back into the business. "I'm so grateful for everything growing up. I'm trying to make the transition properly." The transition includes a movie that is due out next year called Boone: The Bounty Hunter, as well as turning his recent short film into a television series: You Used To Be Cute. Check it out and see what you think! While I think Jonathan would be a GREAT fit for The Maze Runner franchise (anyone here agree with me?!), he would love to do a Johnny Quest movie. "Such a dorky thing, I know," he laughs at the suggestion. Though, I actually think it's a great idea! So, Jonathan has officially proven that you can grow up in this business and still be normal. There is no requirement that says child stars have to fall on their faces and end up in the tabloids, and talking with Jonathan was a breath of fresh air. I can't wait to see what's ahead for this guy! And, just in case you're wondering, yes, Jonathan does stay in touch with one of his heroes and former cast mates, Tom Cruise. "I'm such a fan of his career. I definitely look up to him."
