Jonah Hill has garnered a lot of support online after his recent post surrounding his body image blew up…
The actor and director took to Instagram on Wednesday to address comments being made about his weight…
The thirty-seven-year-old wrote: “I know you mean well but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body,” also adding, “good or bad, I want to politely let you know it’s not helpful and doesn’t feel good. Much respect.”
And his fans quickly ran to the comments to share their support for his candidness…
The post racked up over 440,000 likes, with thousands of comments praising his message.
Alex Light, who is a body-positive influencer on the social media app, wrote: “How you look is the least interesting thing about you/all of us. Society needs to wake up and realize this.”
While plus-size model Tess Holliday added: “LOUDER.”
Hill even got a message from his little sister, Beanie Feldstein, who proudly wrote: “THAT’S MY BROTHER.”
We love this attitude!
This, sadly, isn’t the first time Hill has had to speak up against comments about his apperance…
Back in February, The Daily Mail posted an article about Hill, which he later stated tried to body-shame him, by sharing pictures of him changing out of a wetsuit while he was enjoying a day at the beach.
Hill later responded to the article on his Instagram page, posting a screenshot of the photo with the caption: “I don’t think I ever took my shirt off in a pool until I was in my mid-thirties, even in front of family and friends.”
He continued: “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.”
He concluded his post: “This isn’t a ‘good for me’ post. And it’s definitely not a ‘feel bad for me post.’ It’s for the kids who don’t take their shirts off at the pool. Have fun. You’re wonderful and awesome and perfect. All my love.”
What a truly amazing guy. We hope he always has the strength to overcome these unnecessary comments about his body and live his life in any way he sees best! Go Jonah!
