Jonah Hill Addresses Childhood Demons in New A24 Zine

It seems that making Mid90s was in some ways a therapeutic process for Jonah Hill. Working on his directorial debut allowed the actor to reflect on some issues that he had growing up that centered around wanting to be accepted into the scene that he loosely based the film around. Hill dives straight into the topic in Issue 08 of A24’s zine, which will feature interviews with 12 people including: Mark Gonzales, Na-Kel Smith, Raymond Petibon, Q-Tip, Kim Gordon, Dj Premier, and more.

I became famous in my late teens and then spent most of my young adult life listening to people say I was fat and gross and unattractive. It’s only in the last four years, writing and directing my movie Mid90s, that I’ve started to understand how much that hurt and got into my head.

I really believe everyone has a snapshot of themselves from a time when they were young that they’re ashamed of. For me, it’s that 14-year-old overweight and unattractive kid who felt ugly to the world, who listened to hip hop and wanted so badly to be accepted by this community of skaters.

For this magazine, I asked twelve people I respect and admire if they can relate to this in their own way and how they’ve learned to love themselves. The interviews are all centered around the question of ‘What is that snapshot for you?’ They turned into some of the most meaningful conversations I’ve ever had.
