He’s had enough.

Jonah Hill would like people to stop commenting on his body.

“I know you mean well but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body,” Hill wrote Wednesday (Oct 13) in an Instagram post. “Good or bad I want to politely let you know it’s not helpful and doesn’t feel good. Much respect.”

Hill has been open in the past about his battle with body image, even as he rose to stardom in Superbad and Moneyball.

After a British tabloid published a shirtless photo of Hill in February 2021, the 37-year-old actor turned the tables.

“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,” the two-time Oscar nominee wrote. “Probably would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities weren’t exacerbated by years of public mockery about my body by press and interviewers.

“This isn’t a ‘good for me’ post. And it’s definitely not a ‘feel bad for me’ post,” Hill continued. “It’s for the kids who don’t take their shirt off at the pool. Have fun. You’re wonderful and awesome and perfect. All my love.” – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
