Jonathan Lipnicki, known for his roles in “Jerry Maguire,” “Stuart Little,” and “Like Mike,” reflected on his career in acting in a recent interview.

Despite his early success, he acknowledges the challenges and stresses of the profession, advising those with alternative sources of happiness to pursue them.

Lipnicki has shifted from Los Angeles to Oklahoma, seeking a different pace of life and new opportunities in the growing film community. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Own Memoir Is Coming Back To Haunt Him In Criminal Trial)

He now works as a producer and teaches acting, emphasizing the need for actors to diversify their skills in today’s industry.

“It was crazy. It was very much overnight. My life was just different,” he recalled.

“It was a blur for the next five, six years. Just moving through time really fast.”

“I feel very lucky. You hear a lot of negative stories. There’s nothing I would take back.”

“There’s nothing I would take back at all. You know, I love it and I found out what I want[ed] to do for the rest of my life when I was 5 years old,” he said.

“I’ve always loved it,” he said of being in film.

“I want to do this forever. Through thick and thin. Sometimes things go your way. Sometimes they do not, for a long time. But it’s the greatest job in the world.”

“If you have anything else in your life that makes you just as happy, do that. Because this is very, very, very painful. It can be awful if it isn’t the thing you really want to dedicate your life to,” he said.

“Getting a job is the hardest part… Life is stress, right? What are you willing to stress over? I’m willing to stress over this forever.”

“I left LA around a year ago. I’ve been there my whole life,” he said.

“I just hit a point where I realized I’m self-taping for everything… I want to see what it’s like to live somewhere else and I just got rid of everything I owned except for what could fit in my Jeep Wrangler,” he added.

“I wanted to just see what was out there and see, you know, a different quality of life and a slower pace, and it’s been amazing. I drove around for quite a bit and then I ended up in Oklahoma – had a few friends out here from high school… There’s a growing film community… I teach also locally out here,” Lipnicki said.

“It’s so peaceful for me.”

“I realize it’s increasingly becoming harder and harder to just be an actor. You have to do other creative outlets to really be able to leverage different things,” he said.

“I do a bunch of different things, all around the thing I love. Which is telling stories. But it is so hard now to just be an actor. You have to be a multi-hyphenate in one area or another.”
