Jonah Hill Wants People To Stop Making 'Good Or Bad' Comments About His Body

Jonah Hill wants the world to know that he doesn't want to hear about your thoughts on his appearance.

The Academy Award-nominated actor has had his body scrutinised, mocked, praised and everything in between for years.

But the Moneyball star says enough is enough.

He shared a text photo to his Instagram account, where he 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."

The upload came just after an American magazine published an article that was titled 'Jonah Hill Shows Off Dramatic Weight Loss: See the Before and After Pictures'.

The 37-year-old has been subjected to loads of comments about his weight ever since he became famous.

Interviewers brought it up all the time when he slimmed down and then he would notice horrible comments on social media if he put weight back on.

He explained during an interview on The Ellen Show that each comment people made about him would slowly pile up.

"I think everybody has a version of themselves ― I call it a snapshot ― at some point in life, trying to hide from the world," he said.

"Even if you get success or grow up or become good-looking or whatever ... you kind of carry some part of that with you.

"For me, it's definitely being like this 14-year-old kid, being overweight, wanting to fit in with these skaters and hip-hop kids, and just feeling lonely and maybe not understanding my own worth."

Earlier this year, when shirtless pictures of him started doing the rounds, he revealed the turmoil he's experienced since he was a kid.

Thankfully for him, he's rounded a mental corner as he's grown older and it doesn't bother him as much now.

Responding to photos published by the Daily Mail, Hill wrote on Instagram: "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.

"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."
