Opening on "Saturyday Night Live" with a monologue about his success and Academy Award nominations, Jonah Hill's speech was quickly trounced by questions from "audience members" wanting to know everything about Leonardo DiCaprio!
After a series of questions about Leo, and even one from a Brad Pitt impersonator, Jonah, jokingly, had had enough, telling the audience that he, not Leo, was actually the star of Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street."
Unafraid to make sacrifices to further his career, Jonah Hill claims he accepted $60,000 to appear in "The Wolf of Wall Street."
In an interview on Howard Stern's radio show on Tuesday (January 21), the 30-year-old actor explained, "They gave me the lowest amount of money possible, that was their offer. I said, 'I will sign the paper tonight. Fax me the papers tonight.' I want to sign them tonight before they change their mind. I said I want to sign them before I go to sleep tonight so they legally can't change their mind."
The most popular and idolized names in the business strolled down the red carpet at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA before swaggering in, seeing their peers accept and take home the most highly sought-after awards.
This morning (January 16), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled this year’s Oscar nominees, and some of our favorite stars have weighed in on the news.
Leonardo DiCaprio gushed over his nod for Best Actor (Wolf of Wall Street), noting, "I am deeply humbled by this honor and even happier to share today with Marty [Scorsese], Jonah [Hill], Terry [Winter], as well as this entire cast and crew. The Wolf of Wall Street has been a passion project of mine, and I found the role to be one of the most challenging and rewarding of my career. Congratulations to all of my fellow nominees and thank you to the Academy for this extraordinary recognition."
