Known for starring in films such as “21 Jump Street” and “The Wolf of Wall Street,” the 38-year-old will explore mental health and the impact his job has had on his anxiety in his upcoming documentary, “Stutz.”
“Through this journey of self-discovery within the film, I have come to the understanding that I have spent nearly 20 years experiencing anxiety attacks, which are exacerbated by media appearances and public facing events,” Hill added.
In the light of this, the actor said he would not be promoting the documentary, in order to “protect” himself, although he said he “can’t wait to share it with audiences around the world in the hope that it will help those struggling.”
“If I made myself sicker by going out there and promoting it, I wouldn’t be acting true to myself or to the film,” said the actor who directed the film, which he hopes “will speak for itself.”
The same goes for his other upcoming projects.
“I understand that I am of the privileged few who can afford to take time off. I won’t lose my job while working on my anxiety,” he said.
“With this letter and with ‘Stutz,’ I’m hoping to make it more normal for people to talk and act on this stuff. So they can take steps towards feeling better and so that the people in their lives might understand their issues more clearly,” Hill added.
Hill is not the first celebrity to reveal mental health struggles.
