Jonah Hill Shares Post About Body Positivity “I’m 37 And Finally Love And Accept Myself.”

"It’s for the the kids who don’t take their shirt off at the pool."

Jonah Hill has shared a poignant post this weekend on the subject of body positivity. We are so used to seeing tabloids ‘fat shaming’ celebrities but it is something generally focused on women. However, actor Jonah Hill has had to deal with this issue himself throughout his years in the spotlight.

The 37-year-old has got into surfing over the past year, and recently shared a post about how much he loves the sport. He was initially invited to surf with friends as part of an interview which he said was; “one of the best days of my life.”

Since then he has continued with it and thanked his friends who got him into surfing; “It’s been one of the most positive additions to my life. I’m forever grateful.”

However, this weekend he shared a post to Instagram which featured screenshots from a Daily Mail article about him. The piece features photos of the star getting in and out of his wetsuit and is all about how he looks.

Rather than get angry about the negative connotations of the article, Jonah shared the images and reflected on how far he’s come in feeling positive about his body.

“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.”

His message is so positive for fans as he reveals these types of articles don’t impact how he feels about himself anymore; “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. I’m 37 and finally love and accept myself.”

Continuing he shared; “This isn’t a “good for me” post . And it’s definitely not a “feel bad for me post”. It’s for the the kids who don’t take their shirt off at the pool. Have fun.”

“You’re wonderful and awesome and perfect. All my love.”
