‘Good or bad I want to politely let you know it’s not helpful and doesn’t feel good. Much respect.’

As an Instagram user added: ‘I cannot believe you even need to say this still.’
Jonah made headlines when he opened up about the struggles he has had with his body image since stepping foot in the spotlight.
Pictures recently surfaced of the Superbad actor enjoying a day out at the beach, and surfing shirtless in the sunshine.
Speaking about the photos, he later shared: ‘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 said that he has been mocked over his body for years, and is no longer fazed by the printing of those pictures.
‘I’m 37 and finally love and accept myself,’ Jonah added.
