Remember Jonathan Lipnicki -- the cute, glasses-wearing tyke who played Renee Zellweger's son in 1996's "Jerry Maguire?" Well he's now 21 and showing off his buff body -- apparently a benefit of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu he practices.

Photos the actor posted to Facebook show a toned and tanned Lipnicki sporting a pair of shorts, a smooth, glistening chest and a Star of David tattoo on his side.

"I'm ready to come back and I'm ready to work," Lipnicki tells the New York Daily News. "People are always going to have this image of me as five years old so it's my job to work hard, go into the right rooms and blow them away."

And apparently it's paid off. Lipnicki has two films in post-production according to IMDB: "Tag" and "For the Love of Money."
