Jonathan William Lipnicki (born October 22, 1990) is an American actor. He is best known for his roles in the Hollywood films Jerry Maguire, Stuart Little and Like Mike.


Early life

Lipnicki was born in California, the son of Rhonda (née Rosen) and Joseph Lipnicki.[1] He has an older sister, Alexis.[2] Lipnicki is Jewish;[2][3] his father was born in a refugee camp in Germany, grew up in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and immigrated to the United States in the 1960s, in response to the events involving the Quebec independence movement.[4]
