Jonah Hill is known for promoting mental health awareness, and this recent controversy has really caught fire as he has been accused of controlling his ex-girlfriend Sarah Brady, which was emotionally exhausting and abusive for her.
Jonah Hill is an American actor and has served many laughs with his comic roles in the movies. The 39-year-old actor belongs to the Hollywood city of Los Angeles. His acting career is full of achievements, and it’s not surprising that Forbes named him the highest-paid actor from June 2014 to June 2015.
Jonah Hill has also served as the voice actor for many films, including How To Train Your Dragon trilogy from 2010 to 2019. On the screen, he was seen in Knocked Up (2007), Jump Street 21 (2012), Jump Street 22 (2014) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013). Despite having a very successful career, Jonah has been associated with quite some controversies over the years.
Jonah Hill has always suffered from bad mental health, and he also stopped going for the promotion of his films for the same reason. He recently lost some body weight and can be seen going to the gym to develop his body. This change in Jonah has been surprising for fans, and many have appreciated his work.
However, it was earth-shattering to know that Jonah Hill was emotionally abusive to his ex-girlfriend, Sarah Brady. As someone who always advocates mental health, this kind of behavior presented itself as double standards and hypocrisy to fans. Here’s what we know about the controversy.
Jonah Hill Controversy: What Did Sarah Brady Accuse Him Of?
Sarah Brady has accused Jonah Hill of controlling her and weaponizing therapy talk while they were in a relationship. The couple dated for a while in 2021 and made an appearance on the red carpet. The occasion was the premiere night of the film Don’t Look Up.
Brady revealed that during their relationship, Jonah had tried to control her by demanding certain actions from her and sending texts of these demands. Sarah Brady posted some screenshots of her texts with Jonah on her Instagram account to prove her point.
She also went on to explain that these texts affected her mental health in a negative way, and she found this behavior to be emotionally abusive. Brady also pointed out that Jonah Hill had bad mental health and was treating her abusively because of his nature.
What added fuel to the fire was the fact that Jonah Hill has always been secretive and extremely private about his personal life. Fans were quick to come up that Jonah Hill’s behavior is indeed suspicious. Sadly, this is not it. Sarah Brady had shared a list of things that Jonah Hill had demanded from her in order to date him.
These demands include no surfing with men, no modeling, refraining from posting pictures of herself in swimsuits, and no friendship with women at unstable places. These demands are definitely controlling and lack clear boundaries in a relationship. We can understand that Sarah Brady found them emotionally abusive.
Posting these, she urged fellow women not to settle for this kind of behavior and to exit such emotionally abusive relationships. She pointed out that Jonah Hill calling himself a feminist is practically a joke and wishes for him to be surrounded by feminist men and have a daughter who grows up to be a feminist.
Well, just because a person is suffering from bad mental health, it doesn’t give them a right to control others, and Jonah Hill should work on his mental health instead of projecting bad behavior on others, especially in relationships. Apart from this, Jonah Hill was also accused of sexually harassing Alexa Nikolas when she was 16.
Jonah Hill has not responded publicly to any of the accusations made by Sarah Brady. However, he has denied the claims of sexual harassment and forcefully kissing Alexa Nikolas and called her a serial accuser and a liar. The case was settled by him and his attorney.
We hope that the controversy regarding Jonah Hill is resolved soon and wish the very best to Sarah Brady. Mental health is very important and should not be traded lightly. No relationship should be abusive, and people need to be more aware of their behaviors and work towards them.
