Jonah Hill Responds To Reports That “Jonah Hill Ruined Surfing”
We all know deep down that it’s not cool to comment on other people’s bodies, as Jonah Hill recently reminded us, but did you know we are also not supposed to talk about other people’s hobbies? Because according to Jonah, he’s not here for people’s opinions about his relatively newfound passion for surfing. It’s clear that Jonah has never seen Point Break, (which is wild if you think about it), because somebody stickered his favorite surf spot with a sticker that reads “Jonah Hill Ruined Surfing,” and instead of being relieved he didn’t get the message the hard way, by having The Red Hot Chili Peppers jump him when his back is turned, he and his girlfriend took to social media to complain about it. Johnny Utah would nevah!
According to Buzzfeed, Jonah’s only been surfing since 2019 when his pal James Franco first took him out to help him conquer his fear of it.
E! News reports that Jonah’s girlfriend, environmental activist Sarah Brady, is a member of San Onofre Surfing Club in San Diego, where the offending sticker was found. (Jonah’s response is on the right)

Wow. Jonah has shown incredible restraint here in the face of such blatant disrespect. He could have deployed an army of followers to this public beach armed with razor blades and ready to rumble. And by “rumble” I mean slicing that sticker off and then joining in on a community beach clean-up effort, beers on Jonah after! But instead, he let his lady handle the diss. E! reports:
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.”
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.”
Now, E! claims that the sticker 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,” but I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess it has everything to do with Jonah as a paparazzi/looky-loo magnet whose presence is fucking up the spot, and nothing to do with how he looks. But then again, I’ve seen Point Break. I know how these things go. Jonah just has to keep his nose down, do the work, and earn the respect of the roving gangs of murderous, sociopathic surfers who patrol the beaches of San Diego. But whining is not the way. Beanie would nevah!
