Jonah Hill has a request: stop talking about his body!
That 21 Jump Street lead trains to Instagram Wednesday to set some important boundaries between himself and followers on social media. The 37-year-old uploaded a short but informative text post about why compliments and opinions about his physique are not “helpful”, and shares:
“I know you mean well, but I’m asking you not to comment on my body good or bad. I will politely tell you that it is not helpful and does not feel good. Much respect. ”
Wow! Such a cool thing to ask and an important reminder to all social media users. Even the most well-meaning comment can affect someone negatively, especially because you never know what internal battles people may struggle with. It’s so much better to focus on other aspects of uploads – and there are thousands of ways to send a compliment without judging anyone’s penalty!

It is great to have such a public figure speak on this subject. See Jonas’ full message (below)!
Many A-lists were quick to applaud Superbad star for his honesty, including Saturday Night Live‘s Aidy Bryant, who took note of the request by chiming in with a tick emoji. UPS also answered:
“Absolutely love you. Thank you!!”
Many fans were also very supportive and expressed:
“So much respect for writing this Jonas. No one has the right to comment on your body, it’s sacred to you, and let’s focus on your absolutely incredible acting and projects that you are constantly doing. ”
“I can not believe you even need to say this still”
“This is good advice for everyone!”
However, a celeb did not seem to get the note. Sharon Stone not-so-subtly ignored Jonas’ request by commenting on his body! Seriously?! She wrote:
“Can I say you look good, because you do “
Uh… read the room, Sharon! Or better yet, read the post! He asked for NO comments on his body – good or bad. That Urinary instinct actress may not intend to give an opinion on her friend’s appearance, but it’s hard to read a general comment like that and not assume it has to do with appearance. Hopefully she can take notes for the future.

This is not even the first time Hill has stood up for body positivity, and we doubt it will be the last (especially with answers like the Stones). Back in February, the filmmaker slapped tabloids for posting a shirtless photo of him enjoying a beach day and wrote to ‘gram:
“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 it would have happened sooner if the insecurities of my childhood were not exacerbated by years of public ridicule about my body by the press and interviewers. So the idea that the media is trying to play me off by stalking me while I surf and print photos like this and it can not phase me anymore is dope. ”
Although he praised the fact that he can “finally love and accept” himself, this acceptance is an ongoing journey. We appreciate that he still sticks to his mental health and body image by trying to shut down unwanted feedback! Thoughts, Perezcious readers ?! Let us know in the comments (below)!
