There's a lot to be said for suspending your cynicism in order to properly immerse yourself in a fantasy TV series, but it sounds like Jonah Hill won't be trying it any time soon.

With Game of Thrones, Westworld and Stranger Things dominating the ratings this year, there's no doubt that fantasy and sci-fi is where the money is right now, but Jonah Hill isn't really buying it.

During a recent interview, the Wolf of Wall Street actor admitted that when it comes to film and television, he needs to know that the storyline had a chance of actually happening for him to commit to it.

Acknowledging that he's drawn to roles in movies based on true stories, he said: "I think life is so interesting on its own that, you know, I'm not against other kinds of stories."

"I don't really watch – like, my friends kind of make fun of me – I don't really watch sci-fi or anything like that. I've never seen Game of Thrones."

Aware he may have ruffled a few million feathers with that admission, Jonah added: "I'm sure it's amazing, but I don't really watch things that couldn't or didn't happen, you know?"

"Humanity is probably the most interesting thing. How people treat each other and how people feel, and that's just for me."

"Like, whether it's good or bad, I'm probably a pretty over-sensitive person," he continued. "And I think I just find it entertaining and interesting to explore why people feel and do certain things."

While die-hard Game of Thrones fans in SHEmazing! HQ are reeling right now, we totally see where he's coming from.



Jonah Hill is one of our favourite actors, so we were delighted to find out he loves Dublin just as much as we love him.

Apparently, we're "really special" people here!

The actor hasn't been in the capital for two years, having travelled here to promote 22 Jump Street with Channing Tatum in 2014, however he said it's a place he'll always remember.

"I want to get back [to Ireland] so bad," he told RTÉ Entertainment. "I really love Dublin.

"I think it's a special place, the people are really special.

"Honestly, I judge a place by the people, and in Dublin the people have a really special demeanour, very self-deprecating, very funny, just good to be around."

Awwww! We <3 Jonah.


In a recent interview, Jonah Hill admitted to winding up in hospital while filming The Wolf of Wallstreet.

The 32-year-old actor said he contracted bronchitis due to the large volume of vitamin powder he snorted while making the 2013 film.

I think we all remember how much fake cocaine Jonah was doing throughout that film… *spoiler alert: a lot of it*

Jonah played party-loving stockbroker, Donnie Azoff, alongside his good friend Leonardo Di Caprio, who played the infamous Jordan Belfort. 

During an appearance on American talk show Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons, Jonah said: "We were literally doing fake coke for, like, seven months, every day. I never had more vitamin D in my entire life; I could have lifted a car over my f***ing head."'

While the movie set was a drug free zone, Jonah admitted that "if you ingest that much matter into your lungs, you will get very sick."

Jonah was brought to hospital while filming, where he was treated for bronchitis.

Jonah is set to play another drug-fueled character in his new movie War Dogs, where he plays Efraim Diveroli, a real life arms dealer. 

War Dogs will hit Irish cinemas on August 26, 2016, and we can't wait! 



It may have taken him years (and years)  to finally snag that long-awaited Oscar, but there was never any doubting the mad acting skillz possessed by Leonardo DiCaprio.

No matter what role that man has lent his hand to over the last two decades, he's absolutely nailed it.

So, we're not overly surprised to learn that when he channelled his inner demented uber-fan in NYC this week, Jonah Hill believed every moment of his performance.

Commenting on the footage that hit the internet earlier this week, the Superbad actor admitted Leo had indeed managed to pull the wool over his eyes after spotting him on a busy street in the West Village.

Speaking at the screening of his upcoming movie, War Dogs, this week, Jonah told clamouring reporters that Leo's impromptu prank had been a success, saying: "I was scared sh**tless."

Giving props to his former co-star for the wily trick, 32-year-old Jonah added: "It was funny! I was totally taken off guard."

And in fairness, he looked it.

Oh, that long, lingering hug explains so much now…


The vast majority of us have attempted to keep a food diary at one time or another, right?

Whether it was in the aftermath of a two-week sun holiday when you were convinced the plane was tilting on your side or in the run-up to a special occasion, most of us have given it a whirl.

And while there's nothing embarrassing about a list of food – we mean, it's not like we guard our grocery list with our life – it's not exactly something you share with anyone and everyone.

So, we really feel for Jonah Hill who accidentally shared his personal food diary with Drake – a man he had met only once before.

Opening up about the email eff-up while appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jonah explained that he had been seeing a nutritionist who had advised him to keep track of his daily eats, and send on the deets each day.

"One night I was at home and bored, and was like ‘Oh I didn’t email this guy. I was looking like an hour later through my sent messages. And it must have been ‘D.r.’ because it was doctor, and I had sent it to Drake," he revealed.

And the worst part? Drake didn't even bother responding.

After telling the Hotline Bling singer he had chowed down on yoghurt, salad and chicken that day, Jonah didn't even get a polite 'congrats, man' in reply.

"He didn’t write back, never spoke to him again," Jonah admitted. "Another guy I’ve gotta dump for the rest of my life, a laundry list of people I can never speak to again."

Jeez Drake, manners much?!



Ever since starring opposite each other in The Wolf of Wall Street in 2013, Leo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill have been fast friends.

And it's always seemed like their friendship stretched far beyond press junkets and red carpet events; these two lads looked like they'd kick it with beer and pizza while watching re-runs of Leo's awkward moment with Lady Gaga at the Golden Globes.

And yet despite knowing – OK fine, assuming – that this was the case, it's always refreshing to see it in action, right?

Thankfully for everyone as enchanted by Leo and Jonah as we are, paps in New York caught the two lads in one of the cutest candid moments we've seen in years.

Spotting his mate waiting on a pal in the West Village this week, Leo took the opportunity to scare the bejaysus out of him by pretending to be a crazed fan only mad for a selfie with lil Jonah.

From Leo's surprisingly goofy run to the lingering hug they share, this has had us falling all over each other at SHEmazing! HQ this morning.

Never change, guys.




Seth Rogen's new movie is something we didn't expect at all – but we have a feeling it's going to be hilarious.

The trailer for the cartoon movie dropped on Monday during the South by Southwest Film Festival.

With sight gags, many double entendres and just about every food pun imaginable, this movie is definitely not one to bring your mammy to see.

But behind all of the jokes, there's actually a pretty good story. One of the characters (an Irish potato, no less) has their rose-tinted glasses removed and realises the world isn't all that great.

With Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Kristin Wiig and Jonah Hill all taking part, you know this is a movie you won't want to miss. We think…



Jonah Hill has landed himself in serious trouble after using a homophobic slur against a photographer.

The Wolf of Wall Street actor was walking in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles when he was followed by a paparazzo.

In the TMZ video, the photographer can be heard slagging Jonah about his shorts, saying: “I like the short though, bro. They are pretty sexy.”

A few minutes later, he wishes the actor a good day, to which Jonah is heard replying, “S*** my d***, you f****t.”

Though Jonah’s face is not seen in the shot when the slur is shouted, it has been reported that the voice it is that of Jonah Hill.

Hmm, we know it’s never easy to deal with paparazzi, but surely this wasn’t the wisest reaction.

Update: Jonah Hill has issued an apology for his use of a homophobic slur, saying: “What I said in that moment was a disgusting and a hurtful term. Instead, I use a word I don’t use in my personal life, it’s not part of my vernacular. I’m happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word … It would break my heart for anyone to think I would be against anyone for their sexuality.”

Jonah also said that he had been followed by the paparazzo in question all day and is upset with himself for losing his cool.

Do you think Jonah’s apology is enough?



The new trailer for Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill’s upcoming movie, 22 Jump Street, is outand it looks as though the movie itself will be hilarious.

There was one part of the trailer we weren’t too impressed with however, and that was the Chris Brown and Rihanna joke.

While we love a good laugh, we can’t help but feel a joke about something so serious is a bit tasteless. Did they take it too far?

Have a look at the trailer above and decide for yourself!

While Jonah Hill was hosting Saturday Night Live last night, his Wolf of Wall Street co-star dropped by to offer some support and share a VERY intimate moment…



Jonah Hill has said that he so desperately wanted to work with director Martin Scorsese that he accepted the minimum wage of $60,000 allowed to an actor by the Screen Actors Guild to star as stockbroker Donnie Azoft in The Wolf of Wall Street. 

He was also very eager to sign his contract for the role because he was worried they would change their minds and choose someone else…aww.

Since the role won him his second Oscar nomination, we’re betting it’s a decision he doesn’t regret. Jonah was previously nominated for his role in Moneyball in 2012.

The actor, speaking on The Howard Stern Show yesterday, also voiced his surprise at being nominated for Best Supporting Actor in The Wolf of Wall Street, “I am in compete and total shock … I honestly was not expecting this, on a level you can’t even imagine”.
