Jonah Hill shares his body insecurities in his new Netflix documentary, Stutz which may be a “terrible idea” according to the actor.
Jonah Hill unveiled his new Netflix documentary, Stutz on Monday (November 14). The self-directed, hour-and-a-half-long film sees Hill engaging in candid discussions with his renowned celebrity therapist, Phil Stutz, during their sessions together.
The Superbad actor opens up about how his insecurities “intensely f—ed [him] up,” and how he began attending therapy sessions with Stutz “out of desperation to get happier.”
Jonah Hill shared, “I had no healthy self-esteem. Having grown up overweight was something – that sounds like not a big deal, or like, ‘Poor you’ or whatever – but for me, personally, it intensely f—ed me up.”
Hill also confessed that he lacked confidence during his rise to fame, and while appearing in films such as 21 Jump Street and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Hill explains to Stutz, “I just didn’t invest in myself and understand how to like myself. I just worked to achieve this thing, which is your idea of the snapshot.” In the documentary, Stutz defines “the snapshot” as an illusionary place, where people seek to achieve the perfect experience.
During the film, Jonah Hill ponders aloud: “I just keep asking myself, ‘Was this a f—ing terrible idea for a patient to make a movie about his therapist?” He then adds that Stutz will either be “either the greatest documentary ever made or the worst…it’s probably both.” Watch the documentary via Netflix here.
