JONAH HILL: 'I WAS SHAMED BY ROLLING STONE INTERVIEW'
Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - Jonah Hill has opened up about his lowest moment as a celebrity - when he lost his cool during an awkward Rolling Stone magazine interview.
Last year , The Wolf of Wall Street star was promoting his comedy This Is the End, and admits he should never have agreed to sit for an expose after going through a personal crisis.
Hill now reveals his remorse for behaving badly after the interviewer forgot his name and the subsequent article made him look terrible.
Addressing the Rolling Stone piece during an appearance on Howard Stern's
radio show on Tuesday (21Jan14), Hill said, "I have no excuse but I was going through a really hard time in my personal life... I shouldn't have been
doing the interview.
"The gentleman (reporter) comes in (to a restaurant), he doesn't know my name, he calls me a different name... and he treated me unkind and I felt threatened and insecure and I reacted unkind and not humble.
"I now know to never let my personal life affect how I speak about my or other people's work... I am a kind person and I am a humble person."
After the interview was published, Hill immediately called This Is the End filmmakers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and apologised for his behavior and then took the article to his therapist.
He added, "I read it out loud with my therapist and then we spoke about it for an hour... I acted like a fool that day."
