Jonah Hill isn't simply riding out this wave of hate—he's speaking out.

The Don't Look Up actor and his girlfriend, environmental activist Sarah Brady, both decided to address body shamers head-on after they found a sign that claimed, "Jonah Hill Ruined Surfing." 

It was a cruel reference to photos of Jonah from back in February, when he took to the waters in a black wetsuit for an afternoon of surfing. At the time, Jonah called out paparazzi for photographing him shirtless, saying his "childhood insecurities" have been exacerbated by "years of public mockery about my body." 

But Jonah isn't letting the haters get him down. "I will never stop doing things that make me happy," he wrote on his Instagram Story on Oct. 19, "no matter how insecure my happiness makes you."

If that wasn't mic drop enough, Sarah also chimed in on her page. She said she loves her "man" and is "proud of him for getting into surfing for the pure joy it brings." She added, "If you feel the need to rain on someone else's parade, ask yourself why and consider getting yourself a life."

Sarah, who said she's a member of the San Onofre Surfing Club, called out her fellow surfers, writing, "I know this ain't it. Respect your beach by respecting others." 


Jonah went Instagram official with his girlfriend in September, and she's since expressed her support for his upcoming movies by shouting out her "Jojo" on social media.

As for the 21 Jump Street star, he has become more and more outspoken about his body over the last year.

Last week, he "kindly" asked his fans not to "comment" on his looks. "I want to politely let you know [it's] not helpful and doesn't feel good. Much respect," Jonah said.
