the wolf of wall street

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 has been confirmed that Walking Dead actor Jon Bernthal has welcomed his third child with wife, Erin Angle.

It was also revealed that their new arrival, a baby girl, has been named Adeline – how pretty!

Jon starred as Shane Walsh in the hit TV show as well as taking on the role of Brad Bodnick in the Oscar-nominated The Wolf of Wall Street opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.

Their new arrival was born in mid-February, though the news has only been announced today.

Jon and Erin are also parents to two sons, ages 4 and 2.

Congrats to the family on the birth of Adeline, such an exciting time!



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”.



Awards season is upon us so we decided to take a look at five of the movies you NEED to watch before settling in with a hot water bottle (or any other bottle of your choice) to watch the Oscars this year.

1. Gravity
This movie is entirely set in space –  a “3D science fiction thriller” if you will. This made us sceptical to say the least. “It’s basically Open Water in space” was one of the quotes floating around in relation to the movie, but it’s actually a very impressive film. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are the story’s two stars and Bullock has impressed critics everywhere with her performance as astronaut Dr Ryan Stone.

2. Philomena
A British comedy-drama set in Britain, Ireland and the US, this movie starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan has created quite a stir. Based on the true story of Limerick woman Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), the movie follows Lee’s journey to find her son who was taken off her at the convent in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, where she was kept during her pregnancy 1960’s. A truly inspiring and heart breaking tale with a light comedic touch that is worth seeing;  if even just for the relevance of what so many women in Ireland went through at the time.

3. American Hustle
Jennifer Lawrence. Need we say more? Christian Bale. There we go! A fast paced, interesting and vibrant movie that is far from let down by its impressive cast. A little on the hard side to explain, the movie involves con artists, robbery and politicians. Well worth seeing and it is sure to be a hit at the Oscars this year.

4. 12 Years a Slave
Based on a true story, the movie on everybody’s lips this week is 12 Years a Slave. It has been predicted that this will win massively at the Oscars this year. Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor as Soloman Northup, a free man who is kidnapped and sold into slavery in post-civil war America and whose autobiography was the inspiration for the movie. The movie also stars our very own and very lovely Michael Fassbender, alongside Brad Pitt.

5. The Wolf of Wall Street
Oh Leo. We want you to get the Oscar you deserve so much this year – it’s been a long time coming. The movie, a black comedy directed by Martin Scorsese, revolves around stockbroker Belfort (Leonardo Di Caprio) who works at a firm on Wall Street during the nineties, engaging in fraud and corruption. Set to be huge, it will be released in Ireland on the 17th January.
