The Beach Bum actor spoke about body positivity issues on social media earlier this year, saying, “I’m 37 and I’ve finally loved and accepted myself.”
In 2018, he published an essay in his magazine Inner Children about the criticism that brought him to fame at a young age.
“I became famous in my late teens and then spent most of my young adult life listening to people say I was fat and gross and unattractive,” Hill said.
He said that when he made the movie Mid90s between 2014 and 2018, he “started to understand how much that hurt and got into my head.
“I do believe that everyone has a snapshot of themselves from when they were young, which they are ashamed of,” he said. “To me, it’s that 14-year-old overweight and unattractive boy who felt ugly in the world, who listened to hip-hop and so desperately wanted to be accepted by this community of skaters.”
The actor said in 2018 that when he made the movie Mid90s between 2014 and 2018, he “started to understand” how accurately his appearance affected him.
