Jonah Hill Is Tired Of People Making Remarks On His Body And Asks Fans To Stop Commenting On It

Most people have insecurities about themselves, especially their appearances and they don’t like when others bring attention to them, regardless of whether that attention is negative or positive. Being encouraged and complimented is nice, but it’s not where they want the attention to go.

An example of this is the American actor, filmmaker, and comedian Jonah Hill, who was on a weight loss journey and received so much support and love from his fans, but in a recent Instagram post, he kindly asked people to just stop commenting on his body altogether.

Actor Jonah Hill shared a message on his Instagram asking people to stop commenting on his body regardless of whether they mean well or not

Since starring in the movies Superbad (2007), Knocked Up (2007), and Get Him to the Greek (2010), Jonah Hill was known to be an actor with more weight on his bones. But in 2011, he surprised his fans with a major transformation, appearing in the movie Moneyball with a much slimmer figure. By the way, he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for that movie as well as for The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) in the same category.

After that, his weight fluctuated as he needed to adapt to various characters he was portraying. But what is important to say is that Jonah Hill didn’t feel good in his body.

In 2018, after another dramatic weight loss, the actor told Ellen DeGeneres: “I became famous in my late teens and then spent most of my young adult life listening to people say that I was fat and gross and unattractive. And it’s only in the last four years writing and directing my movie, ‘Mid90s,’ that I’ve started to understand how much that hurt and got into my head.”

Jonah Hill only just recently started to accept his body and the comments or photos in the media don’t faze him as much anymore

And it seems that Jonah Hill is getting more and more comfortable with how he looks as he opened up in an Instagram post earlier this year in February when he was caught on camera shirtless. He even posted the screenshot from the article with the photo and was proud that he has the courage to do that.

In that post, the comedian wrote that he was insecure about his weight in his childhood and becoming famous only made the insecurities worse as every inch of his body was scrutinized by the media. But now he is not fazed by the articles or videos on his appearance anymore and it’s really a liberating feeling.

But he explains that neither good nor bad comments help and they don’t make him feel better

Even then, Jonah Hill pointed out that by bringing attention to that paparazzi shot, he didn’t want to be praised for reaching a point where he accepts his own body. At the same time, he didn’t want people to feel bad for him that the media is exposing him.

Now the actor brought up the issue again, addressing his fans on Instagram and asking them to not comment on his body altogether. He acknowledged that people who comment nice things mean well, but he explained that the comments don’t feel good and don’t help him.

People in the comments under the post supported the actor and agreed that this should be applied to everyone

The post appeared on Jonah Hill’s Instagram on October 13 and over 600k people liked it. People were expressing their support for the actor in the comments and were applauding him for his words as they agreed that those comments are absolutely unnecessary.

And what do you think of Jonah Hill’s message? How do you feel about people asking others not to give them compliments or say anything regarding their appearance? Let’s have a discussion about it all in the comments!

The internet, on the other hand, had mixed reactions, although people agree that commenting on others’ appearances is an issue

Partially agreed. He did not ask for his pictures to be published by some sleazy tabloid.

I'm not a fan of Jonah Hill's work, but much respect for setting boundaries.

This is seriously getting ridiculous. You have no idea who has eating disorders or body image issues (and as someone who has been almost-healthy, overweight, obese and morbidly obese, yes there are going to be body image issues). He's asking for people to please respect that and all you can say is 'no, because women.'

I don't think it's 'no, because women', it's more like 'yeah bud, good luck with that because women have tried and it doesn't work'.
