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.”

Jonah Hill On Controversial Language In 'Mid90s': 'It Was More Important To Tell The Truth'

Jonah Hill keeps it cool and casual while attending the premiere of his directorial debut Mid90s held at the West LA Courthouse on Thursday (October 18) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old actor-writer-director was joined at the event by the stars of the film Sunny Suljic, Na-kel Smith, Ryder McLaughlin, Gio Galicia, Olan Prenatt and Alexa Demie.

Jonah recently addressed not shying away from race, sex and homophobic slurs in the movie.

“I think people who grew up in that time period are having to unlearn a lot of messed-up lessons that were learned back then,” Jonah told Slate. “We’re talking about language that is ugly, behavior that is ugly. I felt it was more important to tell the truth and have that be the lesson, and show it in its ugliness, than to go back and change history.”

“I just wanted to show how that was and let the audience see that for what it is,” Jonah added. “Because at the end of the day, I’m not a moralist. I respect the audience too much to tell them what to think. That’s what I observed and tried to share.”

Jonah Hill Tells 'Fallon' That He Bribed His Young 'Mid90s' Lead with Nutella!

Jonah Hill made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night (October 11) and revealed what inspired him to make his coming-of-age film, Mid90s, which is his directorial debut.

“I looked at my heroes, people like Mike Nichols and Barry Levinson – you only get one shot at a first film, one shot to ever make your first film,” the 34-year-old writer-director told Jimmy. “All these people there first film really came from the heart and it meant something to them. For me, I waited until I had something to say, and Mid90s is my heart. It’s my heart, that’s it.”

Jonah then revealed how sugar turned his 11-year-old non-actor Sunny Suljic into an acclaimed lead in the film.

“He’s unbelievable, he was 11 when we shot the film and I’ve never as a 34-year-old, 15-year career never had to strap a movie to my back and walk across the field,” Jonah expressed. “He’s 11, I literally kept him running on Nutella for the whole shoot. I figured out his drug of choice was Nutella.”
