Jonah Hill is one proud older brother. On April 22, two days before his little sister Beanie Feldstein will make her official Broadway return in the revival of Funny Girl, the Wolf of Wall Street actor expressed support for the actress in the sweetest way. Jonah, 38, shared an Instagram selfie of himself standing in front of a giant billboard of the 28-year-old’s campaign ad for Gucci’s spring-summer 2022 Love Parade collection by creative director Alessandro Michele.
Jonah wrote in the caption, Iconic sister alert. Beanie responded with eight crying face emojis. A day later, on April 23, Jonah posted a photo of himself eating pizza outside with Beanie’s girlfriend, Bonnie Chance Roberts, writing, Best day with my future sister. Bonnie also shared a photo with Jonah, Sharon and other members of the Feldstein family members standing in front of Beanie’s billboard.

Dolly. The Lady Bird actress announced her casting in the new Funny Girl musical, which also stars Glee’s Jane Lynch, Ramin Karimloo and Jared Grimes, last August.

Debra Messing also praised Beanie over the casting, gushing on Instagram in response to her post, I SCREAMED. I cannot imagine anything more perfect!
