Jonah Hill Directed A Film Loosely Based on His Childhood as a Skater

That probably explains why he's recently been rocking brands like Palace and Supreme.

If you thought Jonah Hill's recent sartorial choices were just him following the trends, think again. As it turns out, he might have a legitimate connection to skate culture. His directorial debut Mid90s out this October is said to be loosely based off his childhood experiences of skateboarding through Los Angeles. So that's why he's been wearing all that Palace and Supreme.

Hill also wrote the film but to clarify, does not act in it. The story centers around a young boy named Stevie (played by Sunny Suljic) and his initiation into California's skateboarding scene, including several run-ins with the cops, some fence climbing, and a few fights. You know, the usual stuff. 



The studio behind it is the same as Moonlight, Lady Bird, and The Florida Project, so you can expect it to be an indie favorite in no time. I don't know about you, but this trailer makes me want to dust off my pink Etnies sneakers and slap on a studded cuff bracelet. 

Mid90s hits theaters October 9. Until then, enjoy these images of Jonah Hill's best skate-inspired looks.
