Jonah Hill will no longer promote his films to preserve his sanity

2022-08-18T16:17:53.790Z

The 33-year-old actor and director has wrapped filming his next film, a documentary about mental health, which convinced him to step back from media tours.



"You won't see me promoting this movie, or any of my upcoming movies"

.

While he has just finished filming his next feature film, actor and director Jonah Hill announced in a letter broadcast by

Deadline

that he will not be doing a media tour to promote the next productions in which he will appear.

The 33-year-old actor explains that he realized, while making his documentary film called

Stutz

, that he had spent

"nearly 20 years suffering from anxiety attacks, which are exacerbated by the appearances in the media and public events”

.

Stutz

looks at the

21 Jump Street

(2012) actor's relationship with his therapist Phil Stutz and explores the field of mental health in general.

It should be presented in the fall in a

"prestigious film festival"

explains Jonah Hill without saying more.

"I can't wait to share it with the public around the world in the hope that it will help people in difficulty"

declares the one who had been nominated for an Oscar for his role in

The Strategist

(2011).

With this approach, he hopes to encourage others to take care of their mental health

.

“Usually letters or statements like this frighten me, but I understand that I am one of the privileged few who can afford to take time off.

I will not lose my job working on my anxiety.

With this letter and with

Stutz

, I hope to make it more normal for people to talk and act on this topic.

So they can take action to feel better and so the people in their lives can understand their issues more clearly,”

he wrote.

This decision should therefore impact the next productions in which the actor, who we recently saw as the chief of staff of the President of the United States Meryl Streep in

Don't Look Up

, is involved.

Soon, he will be starring in the Netflix comedy

You People

, which he co-wrote and produced, and in which he plays.

Jonah Hill is far from the first to make the decision to step back to preserve himself.

In July, it was Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes who announced that he was postponing his tour in order to

“take care of his mental health”.

More recently, actor Ezra Miller announced that he suffered from

"complex mental health problems"

and that he had started treatment after several police arrests.

This week, Spider-Man

star

Tom Holland said he was withdrawing from social media, once again, for

"his sanity"

.
