Jonah Hill Opens Up About Dealing With Public Scrutiny

Jonah Hill is opening up about dealing with public scrutiny about his appearance in his new magazine.

The 34-year-old actor helped guest-edit an entire magazine called Inner Children, which focused on self-love in the hopes of helping anyone struggling with their self-image.

“I became famous in my late teens and then spent most of my young adult life listening to people say that I was fat and gross and unattractive. And it’s only in the last four years writing and directing my movie, Mid90s, that I’ve started to understand how much that hurt and got into my head,” Jonah wrote in the opening manifesto.

While explaining the magazine on The Ellen Show, he added, “It took a long time — honestly until right now — for me to come out as sort of the person, the artist, mind, what I represent, how I feel, how I’d like to be spoken to, how I speak to the world in a way that actually represents who I am as a person as opposed to me trying to be something else that I’m not. I’m under construction like we all are.”
