Jonah Hill asks fans not to comment on his body: ‘It’s not helpful’

Actor Jonah Hill, who was the star of the movie “Superbad”, wants the world to know that his body is not a suitable topic of conversation.

The 37-year-old actor, best known for his comic roles in films such as “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “21 Jump Street,” and “Superbad,” went to his Instagram profile on Wednesday to tell his followers that reading comments about his physique “doesn’t feel good.”

Hill said: “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.”

Hill has previously written about being body-shamed and his latest post prompted an outpouring of support from fellow celebrities and fans, with many applauding him for trying to set boundaries. Hill’s sister, actress Beanie Feldstein, praised her sibling for the post, sharing applause emojis.

Hill’s public plea comes months after the Hollywood A-lister opened up about his struggles with body image in an Instagram post, revealing he was finally learning self-acceptance in his mid-30s.
In February, he shared a screenshot of a Daily Mail article, which featured pictures of him changing out of his wetsuit after surfing in Malibu, California.
