Jonah Hill has always been the gift that keeps on giving.
Through his amazing acting and his unique humour, there’s nothing like getting into a laughing fit from a classic Jonah Hill line in Superbad or 21 Jump Street.
Now Hill has taken to social media with a request as he asks fans not to comment on his body image.
In the post he wrote, “I know you mean well but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body. Good or bad, I want to politely let you know it’s not helpful and doesn’t feel good. Much respect.”
Earlier this year in March, Hill spoke out on paparazzi images that were circulating which were posted by the Daily Mail.
Hill decided to share the images on his Instagram, along with an extremely heartfelt caption, dedicated to “the kids who don’t take their shirt off at the pool”.
“I don’t think I ever took my shirt off in a pool until I was in my mid 30s even in front of family and friends. Probably would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities weren’t exacerbated by years of public mockery about my body by press and interviewers,” he wrote.
“So the idea that the media tries to play me by stalking me while surfing and printing photos like this and it can’t phase me anymore is dope.”
“I’m 37 and finally love and accept myself,” Hill continued. “This isn’t a “good for me” post . And it’s definitely not a “feel bad for me post”. It’s for the the kids who don’t take their shirt off at the pool. Have fun. You’re wonderful and awesome and perfect. All my love.”
“Oh and Daily Mail, not even you can take that smile from my face ;)”
