Jonah Hill wants everyone to know his body is not up for discussion.

The 37-year-old actor took to Instagram on Wednesday to share an important message, letting his followers know it bothers him when his body is the topic of conversation -- no matter the intention.

"I know you mean well but I kindly ask that you not comment on my body ❤️good or bad I want to politely let you know it's not helpful and doesn't feel good," Hill wrote. "Much respect."

The two-time Oscar nominee received lots of love in the comments, with "Saturday Night Live" star Aidy Bryant, model Tess Holliday and his own sister, "Impeachment: American Crime Story" actress Beanie Feldstein, supporting him.

Hill previously opened up about the focus on his body and how he is in a place where he's finally happy.

"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," he wrote in a post dated Feb. 26. "Probably would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities weren't exacerbated by years of public mockery about my body by press and interviewers."

"I'm 37 and finally love and accept myself," Hill continued. "This isn't a 'good for me' post. And it's definitely not a 'feel bad for me post.' It's for the kids who don't take their shirt off at the pool. Have fun. You're wonderful and awesome and perfect."
