Hill has been open to the public about his mental health, and he recently revealed he won’t be promoting his films to protect his mental well-being.
In an open letter shared by Deadline, he revealed that he had been experiencing anxiety attacks ‘for nearly 20 years ‘which are exacerbated by media appearances and public-facing events’.
Hill added: 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.”
Stuntz is now available to watch on Netflix.
