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."

Welcome to Monday’s The Crap We Missed which is always a bountiful grab bag of random shit thanks to a full weekend of red carpet events where I cherry-picked famous people looking super fat, like Denise Richards or just plain dead for a decade, like Larry King.

Kate Winslet Never ‘Snogged’ Leonardo DiCaprio

Oct 3 2014 11:41am CDT | Source: The Superficial

Kate Winslet was younger than 23 when she filmed Titanic, so based on everything we know about this world, Leonardo DiCaprio should’ve had sex with her. But so far this week we’ve seen George Clooney get married and Mila Kunis birth Ashton Kutcher‘s baby, so somebody’s traveling through time and fucking their mom instead of pretending to be Darth Vader so their dad will have the confidence to ask her out. (An ...

16 (5) Deleted Scenes That Should Have Made The Final Cut

Sep 21 2014 4:52pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Deleted scenes are hard to avoid. It doesn’t always come down to a simple need for a shorter movie. Sometimes a scene can slow the pace down too much or not mesh tonally with the other sequences. No matter the reason why they were cut, there are deleted scenes that are so good that it’s hard to believe anyone could approve removing them. I understand that sometimes there isn’t a choice, but it’s still unfortunate.Though these great scenes we ...
