Jonah Hill Ridiculed During Incredibly Awkward French TV Interview -- Watch
By Alex Ungerman
This is all kinds of eek.
Jonah Hill appeared on French television program Le Grand Journal last Friday, and the interview quickly went south after an excruciating exchange between the War Dogs star and host Ornella Fleury.
The TV personality started by ridiculing Hill's appearance, saying, "It’s when I saw you get sodomized by a three-meter-tall demon in This Is the End that I told myself, 'Now that’s the man of my dreams!'"
"I hear you get sodomized pretty often," Hill can be heard responding to the quip.
"Anyway, that’s why I have a sexual fantasy with you, Jonah," Fleury continued, laughing. "My sexual fantasy would be that we'd meet up in a hotel room at night. We would chat, you’d make me laugh. You would make me laugh a lot! And then all of a sudden, you'd bring your friends [Leonardo] DiCaprio and Brad Pitt -- And then you’d go away!"
"I’m glad I came to this show to get ridiculed by a local weather girl," said a clearly perturbed Hill. "It's nice."
The 32-year-old actor reportedly canceled his remaining French TV appearances over the tense exchange.
On Monday, Fleury took to her TV program to apologize for the uncomfortable incident, saying (via France's The Local publication), "Jonah, the problem is that for 10 years I have lived with you through your films. In fact Jonah, I really had the impression that I knew you so last Friday I thought I was just messing around with a friend, but the reality is that we are not friends."
"No, the reality is that you have two Oscar nominations and I have two videos on my YouTube account," Fleury added. "You have made films with Scorsese and Tarantino, and me, I have made an advert for Spontex [a cleaning products manufacturer]."
No response from Hill to the apology as-of-yet, but he's been through worse!
