Jonah Hill accepted pay cut for The Wolf of Wall Street

Jan 21 2014, 11:32am CST | by

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."

Watch These Young Singers Turn the Tables on Country Music Stereotypes

Jul 28 2014 11:50am CDT | Source: Pop Sugar

Rising country music duo Maddie & Tae recently released their first single, "Girl in a Country Song," and last week, an accompanying video for the track was revealed on YouTube. The ladies have been gaining lots of attention for their catchy song - a takedown of the typical bikini-wearing, denim-cutoff-clad girls in country music videos - and do their best to turn the tables for the video.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Played Unhealthy Well

Jul 24 2014 2:12pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character in his final leading role is a troubled alcoholic. Anton Corbijn directed Hoffman in A Most Wanted Man and said Hoffman was perfect for the part: “He channeled part of the state he was in at the time into that character. They were more closely linked than, say, the character he played in ‘The Master’… It will always be harder to differentiate in this role between how people perceived him to be as a perso ...

Leonardo DiCaprio Weight Gain Photo: The Great Gutsby Goes Shirtless!

Jul 21 2014 4:01pm CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Like most movie fans, we here at THG love Leonardo DiCaprio.  How can you not? He's an incredible talent with an amazing body of work; by all accounts he's a super nice guy, and he's even been known to snub the Kardashians. He's basically Superman without all the snooty moralizing and we don't even begrudge him the endless string of supermodels that he bangsand dumps dates.  All that being said, we've gotta call Leo out for slowly morphing into some chain- ...
