Sharon Stone making waves on social media after commenting on Jonah Hill's appearance despite his public request that people no longer comment on his body. The Wolf of Wall Street actor took to Instagram on Thursday, October 14, to share the request.
“I know you mean well but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body," he wrote. “Good or bad I want to politely let you know that it’s not helpful and doesn’t feel good. Much respect.” While the post initially prompted a wave of support from fellow celebrities like Aidy Bryant, SZA, and Hill’s sister Beanie Feldstein, a comment from Stone sparked uproar after she appeared to ignore Hill's request. “Can I say you look good cuz u do,” she wrote in the comments, alongside a fire emoji, per screenshot shared to Twitter.
The comments on Hill's Instagram post have since been disabled, but screenshots showed how his fans rebuked Stone for her message. “He literally just said don’t do it… and you are doing it," one wrote. “Can you read?” another person asked Stone, while someone else added, “No bc he said don’t comment on his appearance, good or bad. TY," Today reported.

On the other hand, there were also several comments supporting the Basic Instinct star. "Jonah Hill shouldn't be in the public eye if he doesn't want scrutiny. AND get the f off of social media Jonah, ya big baby," one tweeted. "Then why is he putting pictures of himself out there? Because he loves the feedback," a comment read. "Jonah Hill needs to leave social media if he can't hack it. When Sharon Stone tells you to lighten up re: strangers talking about your appearance daily-she might be the expert. At least no one is asking Hill about his vagina, wrinkles, age, a**, t*ts," another added.

Hill's recent request for people to stop commenting on his appearance comes after he opened up about the impact of years of body shaming in February after an article and photos published by the Daily Mail about his surfing outing went viral. At the time, he explained that he had finally learned to be comfortable in his own skin.
“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. Probably would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities weren’t exacerbated by years of public mockery about my body by press and interviewers,” he wrote on Instagram alongside a screengrab of the Daily Mail piece. “So the idea that the media tries to play me by stalking me while surfing and printing photos like this and it can’t phase me anymore is dope. I’m 37 and finally love and accept myself.
