Jonah Hill Compares Himself to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, George Clooney and More
It's clear that Jonah Hill has one man supporting him after recent unflattering interviews: Jonah Hill.
After his ridiculous, insufferable interview with Rolling Stone earlier this month (in which he lauded his transition into dramas and refused to answer questions about farts), we hoped that Jonah Hill had gotten all the asshole out of his system. We were wrong. In a recent interview with Bullett Magazine, Hill discussed his role in the upcoming Martin Scorsese film The Wolf of Wall Street and continued to pump his own awesomeness.
"You can dis[s] me all you want on a blog," he told the magazine, "or write whatever you want in this magazine and I’ll just be like, 'Whatever, man. Scorsese thinks I'm awesome.'"
But there's more: In a particularly enlightening quote, Hill discusses the actors that he considers his equals, "I knew that I was being considered among a list of other actors, but not my contemporaries — Andrew Garfield or Joseph Gordon-Levitt — people who are usually up for the same stuff as me. I was hearing names like George Clooney.”
A couple things here. First, seems we missed out on a very different The Amazing Spider-Man. As for the Gordon-Levitt comparison? Sorry, Jonah, just because the 50/50 star was in a movie with Seth Rogen once doesn't make him your contemporary. And Clooney? Really? I've heard the name George Clooney before too, that doesn't mean I beat him for a movie role.
It's great that you're now a serious actor, but, honestly man, get your rapidly expanding head out of your rapidly shrinking ass.
