In the caption, he described his experience loving himself, admitting that he probably never had taken off his shirt by the pool until he was in his mid-30s!
He then told his followers that it “ probably would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities had not been exacerbated by years of public derision of my body by the press and interviewers. So the idea that the media is trying to play me out by stalking me while surfing and taking pictures like this and it can’t phase me anymore is so stupid. I am 37 and I finally love and accept myself. This is not a “good for me” message. And it is certainly not a “feel bad for me post”. It’s for the kids who don’t take off their shirts by the pool. Lots of fun. You are awesome and awesome and perfect. All my Love.’
Following his inspirational post, Jonah received a lot of love and support from fans who appreciated the message, as well as some of his famous friends, such as Kelly Slater, Johnny Knoxville and Andy Cohen, to name a few.

His sister, Beanie Feldstein, also gushed over him in the comment section, telling Hill that “You’re the best in the world I love you.”
This isn’t the first time Jonah Hill has opened up about his struggles with weight and body image.
In 2018, while talking to Ellen DeGeneres about her talk show, he read to her and the audience the manifesto of Inner Children, a magazine he created with a focus on self-love.
