Media Shames Jonah Hill for Weight Gain As He's "Caught" Having Food Delivered

Jonah Hill famously lost weight in 2011. He looked happy and healthy. He clearly put in the work and it made a difference in his life. He told Vulture in 2011 that he wanted to get healthy for his family and explained that "being healthier came along with maturity. And it’s hard, because a lot of times people want you to be the guy you were when they met you. And I love doing funny movies, but I want to mature, literally, in how I treat myself." But hey, no need for us to be mature in how we treat him right? I was appalled to read this headine today: That's the last thing he needs! Jonah Hill displays portly physique as he gets food delivered to New York home. Really? Not only is this a BS story about NOTHING it is loaded with judgement before you even read the first sentence. Hill has gained back the weight he lost. That much is true. A source close to the story says that he is actually over 300 pounds now. But does any of that give us licence to dictate what he 'needs?' Think about it, how horrible would it feel to have people start a running commentary every time you ordered in or ate something less than healthy? I think Jonah Hill is hilarious and I would like to see him have a long and prosperous career (and with that, a long life) but it is absolutely not my place, nor my business, to tell him how he should go about it. I don't believe we should tell women how they need to look and I think the same needs to go for men. This is an example of how horrible and judgmental we can be. Shame can be a major part of a weight gain cycle. As a culture, we should be ashamed. The man had food delivered to his residence. Is that really a news story? Live and let live, I say. Being overweight isn't particularly healthy but I refuse to pass judgment on someone because of it. We come in all shapes and sizes, and they can change one way or the other over time. Why so much shaming of someone who doesn't fit an arbitrarily defined standard of perfection? Beat it. Let the man dine in peace. Do you follow BodyRock on Snapchat and Instagram?
