This is such an awesome message from Jonah Hill. I wore swimsuits with a skirt, FFS! Like it was 1860! And now I look again and suppose I appeared beautiful, *other than the ridiculous costume*. Truth is, no matter you seem like, in ten years you’ll look again and realise you have been stunning. https://t.co/87cfaDdIIU
