Jonah Hill is taking a step again from the limelight.
The “War Dogs” actor introduced in a press release on Wednesday that he’ll cease selling his personal movies because of the toll it takes on his psychological well being. Hill stated he got here to this realization in the course of the filming of a documentary known as “Stutz” that focuses on his conversations together with his therapist.
“Through this journey of self-discovery within the film, I have come to the understanding that I have spent nearly 20 years experiencing anxiety attacks, which are exacerbated by media appearances and public facing events,” Hill informed Deadline in a press release.
He added: “If I made myself sicker by going out there and promoting it, I wouldn’t be acting true to myself or to the film.”
Hill stated he would usually “cringe at letters or statements like this.” He additionally acknowledged his privilege in having the ability to take time without work.
“I won’t lose my job while working on my anxiety,” the actor stated. “With this letter and with ‘Stutz,’ I’m hoping to make it more normal for people to talk and act on this stuff. So they can take steps towards feeling better and so that the people in their lives might understand their issues more clearly.”
Hill joins celebrities like Prince Harry, Camilla Cabello and Shawn Mendes in prioritizing psychological well being and speaking about their struggles.
The “Superbad” entertainer up to now has spoken about his battles with the media and the way it affected his physique picture.
“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,” the actor stated on 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 added. “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.”
