America’s sweetheart, Jonah Hill, is speaking out against comments about his body. Be it good or bad; the comedian is standing up for himself and saying no more!
On Wednesday, October 13, the “21 Jump Street” star dropped the bombshell on Instagram. With a brief message, the 37-year-old politely asked fans and friends alike to adhere to his new rule. In his words:
“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.”
Reactions To Hill’s Post
As reported by PEOPLE, the “War Dogs” star’s post touched the hearts of several fans and friends, who flooded the comment section with their support.

Before this post, the Hollywood sensation had uploaded a unique message of self-love by donning a new body art on his shoulder in September.
The comedian’s tattoo consisted of a yellow circle designed with ‘Body Love’ and a geometric hand in the middle.
This detailed artwork appeared to be the 37-year-old’s representation of the Body Glove brand logo, an American watersports apparel industry.
Self-love All the Way!
Before turning into the gorgeous stud he is today, Hill was well known for his adorable round figure. Although many found the actor’s previous frame endearing, some have body-shamed him.
Back in February, the “Funny People” star shared his struggles with self-acceptance alongside a Daily Mail article that captured the comedian surfing as well as shirtless.
In the candid Instagram post, the two-time Oscar nominee confessed that he had always struggled with body image insecurities. A problem that escalated with his rising fame as he was body-shamed by the public.
The 37-year-old revealed that he never took his shirt off at the pool, even while surrounded by family and friends, until his mid-30s.
However, after learning to love his body, the actor is no longer fazed by the actions of the paparazzi. Hill concluded his message by encouraging kids struggling with their body image to be free and have fun.
Always The Comedian
Although Hill is mainly known for his comedic roles, the Hollywood sensation is also a director, producer, and screenwriter. However, it seemed the actor was a true comedian at heart.
The Blast has previously reported how much the 37-year-old enjoyed teasing his fans with ingenious pranks. Some of his best were centered around his weight loss.
With the help of a nutritionist and the actor, Channing Tatum, “The Lego Movie” star was unrecognizable with his new figure and full beard in 2020.
Fans were further confused when the actor posted a picture of himself and captioned it “50 and thriving.”
Naturally, the comment section was filled with several people wondering if this stunning man was the Hill they love and whether or not he was 50.
