Jonah Hill this week asked fans, followers and others to “not comment on my body,” explaining that it’s “not helpful and doesn’t feel good.”
“I know you mean well but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body,” the actor shared on Instagram on Wednesday, adding that “good or bad I want to politely let you know it’s not helpful and doesn’t feel good. Much respect.”
Hill’s post garnered support from a slate of other celebrities and social media users. Beanie Feldstein, Hill’s sister, commented “THATS 👏 MY 👏 BROTHER 👏,” including clapping emojis. Musician SZA commented “Absolutely Love you. Thank you.”
Other social media users also applauded Hill’s statement.

Earlier this year, Hill responded on Instagram after the Daily Mail published photos of the actor shirtless and surf surfing.
“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,” he wrote in a post on Instagram. “Probably would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities weren’t exacerbated by years of public mockery about my body by press and interviewers.
“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 added.Internet Explorer Channel Network
