Jonah Hill accepted pay cut for The Wolf of Wall Street

Jonah Hill took a pay cut for 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.

The actor was so desperate to play debauched stockbroker Jordan Belfort's sidekick, Donnie Azoff, in Martin Scorsese's Oscar nominated movie that he accepted a pay check of just $60,000.

He made the admission on radio program 'The Stern Show', which aired this morning (01.21.14), with the show's official Twitter account posting: "Now on H100 @jonahhill tells @howardstern that he did the 7 month 'Wolf of Wall Street' shoot for $60,000 because he wanted the role so bad (sic)".

Jonah's gamble has more than paid off since the funnyman was nominated for both a Golden Globe and Academy Award for his stellar performance alongside Hollywood heavyweight Leonardo DiCaprio.

The 30-year-old star also discussed his infamous 2013 interview with Rolling Stone magazine in which he refused to answer the reporter's jokey queries.

The 'Stern Show'account added on Twitter: "#H100 @JonahHill discusses the 1 interview where he came off like a jerk - in Rolling Stone - explaining he was going through a bad time.../...in his personal life. @JonahHill also feels the reporter was not nice to him. But he regrets how he came off #H100".

Jonah's eyes "jumped out of their sockets" last summer when asked what kind of farter he was by the publication, to which he scathingly replied: "I'm not answering that dumb question! I'm not that kind of person! Being in a funny movie doesn't make me have to answer dumb questions. It has nothing to do with who I am."
