The 37-year-old star, best known for his comedic performances in movies including “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “21 Jump Street” and “Superbad,” took to his verified Instagram page on Wednesday to inform fans it “doesn’t feel good” to read comments about his body.
Hill has previously written about being body-shamed and his latest post prompted an outpouring of support from fellow celebrities and fans, with many applauding him for trying to set boundaries.
Hill’s sister, actress Beanie Feldstein, praised her sibling for the post, sharing applause emojis.
Singer SZA replied: “Absolutely love you. Thank you!!”
In February, he shared a screenshot of a Daily Mail article, which featured pictures of him changing out of his wetsuit after surfing in Malibu, California.
“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,” he wrote at the time.
“Probably would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities weren’t exacerbated by years of public mockery about my body by press and interviewers.”
He continued: “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.”
The new ink located on his back reads, “Body Love,” and includes a drawing that looks similar to the logo for Body Glove, the water sports apparel company.
