Jonah Hill Won’t Promote His Movies Due to MH: Press Tours Worsen His Anxiety Attacks

Putting himself first. After realizing that press tours are bad for his mental health, Jonah Hill said that he won’t be promoting his upcoming movies.

“Through this journey of self-discovery in the film, I have realized that I have had anxiety attacks for nearly 20 years, which are made worse by media appearances and other public events,” Hill, 38, wrote in an open letter that was first published by Deadline on Wednesday, August 17.

The actor from “Superbad” has a number of projects coming up, including “You People,” a Netflix comedy that Hill co-wrote with director Kenya Barris. He also made a documentary called Sputz, which will be shown at fall film festivals. Hill and his therapist talk openly about mental health issues in the movie.

In his letter, the Wolf of Wall Street actor said, “You won’t see me out there promoting this film or any of my upcoming films while I take this important step to protect myself.” “If I went out to promote it and got sicker, I wouldn’t be being true to myself or the movie.”

The Californian went on to say that he usually cringes at letters or statements like this, but that he is one of the “privileged few who can afford to take time off” and wants to “make it more normal for people to talk and act” about their mental health.

Hill ended his letter by saying that he hopes people who are going through similar problems will “take steps toward feeling better.” He then thanked his “collaborators, my business partners, and all of you reading this for your understanding and support.”

The Maniac actor has been in a few movies in 2022, including the Oscar-nominated Don’t Look Up with Leonardo DiCaprio. He also directed the second episode of HBO’s Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty. But for the most part, he’s been out of the spotlight.

This isn’t the first time Hill has taken a break to focus on his health. He has also been on a long-term journey to lose weight. It started in 2011 and picked back up in 2017 after he worked hard to lose the 40 pounds he put on for his role in War Dogs in 2015.

In February 2021, a shirtless picture of the Knocked Up star was posted online, which made headlines, and Hill used the chance to say something positive about his body.

“I don’t think I ever took off my shirt in a pool, even in front of family and friends, until I was in my mid-30s. “Probably would have happened sooner if the press and interviewers hadn’t made fun of my body for years, making my childhood insecurities worse,” he wrote on Instagram at the time.

“So the idea that the media tries to play me by following me around while I surf and printing photos like this is dope. I’m 37 years old, and I finally love and accept myself. This isn’t a post about what’s good for me. It’s not a “feel sorry for me” post, either. It’s for kids who don’t like to take off their shirts at the pool. Have fun. You’re great, wonderful, and perfect. I love you.”
