He’s endlessly funny and has plenty of industry stories to tell, and Jonah Hill captivated Howard Stern during his on air radio interview on Tuesday (June 3).
Following his apology for using a homophobic slur towards a paparazzo over the weekend, the “Wolf of Wall Street” star explained that he and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine have been pals for a long time.
“Our dads met in the principal’s office in junior high. We were in carpool, we lived at each other’s houses. He’s the kind of guy that you never would be jealous of cause he’s not a d*ck. He’s not a d*ck about it, he’s so generous and nice to people.”
Jonah continued, “He’s not different now. He’s an actual guy…That is a guy who is exactly who he ever was in a great way. And actually, I know a lot of famous people and he’s one that has not changed.”
Meanwhile, Hill also confessed he made a promise to “21 Jump Street” costar Channing Tatum that he definitely regretted soon thereafter. “It was the night the movie was opening and we were at dinner. And if we had broken $30 million opening weekend, we were a massive, massive success…So we’re at dinner and we’re drinking and he says, ‘I bet you it’s gonna make $35 million opening weekend.’ And as a joke, I said, ‘I’ll kiss the tip of your d*ck…over the boxers.'”
“A lot of people would be jealous of me if I got to do that. So what happens is, it makes $36 million opening weekend, which was huge, we were all celebrating and he’s like, ‘You gotta…’ I did not. It was a joke and it was silly and obviously it’s a lose-lose situation for both parties.”
