Jonah Hill Insists He’s a Serious Actor, So Stop Asking Him About Bodily Functions

this-is-the-end-jonah-hillIt’s official: Jonah Hill is a serious actor.  Sure, he might be co-starring in This Is The End and is likely returning for a sequel for 21 Jump Street, but in an interview with Rolling Stone Hill refuses to speak about his more famous filthy comedies and only wants to speak about his transition from comedian to serious actor in films like Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Want proof?

When asked about how he managed to shed so many pounds from his once-chubby frame? He answers, “My workout routine is of little relevance.”

When asked about passing gas? He answers, “I’m not answering that dumb question! I’m not that kind of person! Being in a funny movie doesn’t make me have to answer dumb questions. It has nothing to do with who I am.”

When asked about masturbating, something his friend (and This Is The End co-star) Seth Rogen has openly discussed in many interviews, he answers, “No! We’re completely different people.  You know that, right? It seems to be a big part of Seth’s life. I imagine maybe it’s because he’s married.”

On what he thinks of being called “angry and nerdy” by Judd Apatow?  He answers, “Yeah, there was probably an angry time for me. But I couldn’t be a less angry person. Judd maybe thinks of himself that way. But I haven’t worked for him in five years. I adore him. But I’m fucking 29 years old and not some angry kid.”

What will he talk about?  His transition from comedian to serious actor, of course.  On that he says, “I’ve done one of the biggest challenges you can do in Hollywood, which is transition from being a comedic actor to being a serious actor, and I’m really prideful of that,” he says. “I could have made a billion dollars doing every big comedy of the last 10 years and didn’t, in order to form a whole other life for myself. Now I have fulfillment doing both.”

So, good for Hill, I guess.  But why so serious?

    My Grandfather was a “serious” carpenter, yet he still took time out to let me “pull his finger.” You can be both, Jonah. You can.

    Ha! It’s also funny because Seth Rogen was on Howard Stern this morning and he ripped on Hill about this interview and his recent demands to be taken seriously. He seemed to think it was a pretty goofy decision.

    I’ve interviewed him twice and he definitely takes himself waaaay too seriously.
