The Jonah Hill Romance Thwarted by the Lingering Odor of an Airplane Bathroom

Saturday morning, time allowing, is when I go to YouTube and check for good bits from the UK airing of Graham Norton’s show, and this week, the lineup was outstanding: Sylvester Stallone, Robert DeNiro, Carey Mulligan, and Jonah Hill.

The eight minute bit below is chock full of wonderful, beginning with Jonah Hill talking about how uncomfortable Martin Scorsese was in directing certain nude scenes in The Wolf of Wall Street (and how, after one particular scene, Hill had to bathe in Purell) and the segment ended with Carey Mulligan describing the tipsy selfie audition she made on her iPhone, which she nearly submitted to the Coens for Inside Llewyn Davis (the drunkenness, apparently, helps her with her American accent).

The best story from the clip, however, comes from Hill, who describes an incident on a plane where he was flirting with a woman he thought might be his future wife, only to have her lose interest after visiting the airplane bathroom after him.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Yocean

    Jesus, Carey Mulligan with british accent is monstrously irresistible.

  • Maddy

    I love Carey Mulligan so much, though I wish she hadn't been made (I'm assuming) to wear that outfit. I have no strong feelings about Jonah Hill, I'm just bemused that he keeps getting cast in things. To be fair, I haven't seen Moneyball or Wolf of Wall Street though.

  • Abby

    Okay, I gotta ask. Why am I/are we allowed (based on the lack of objections to the comment), to be "completely repulsed by him (Jonah Hill) as a person" but not Lena Dunham? They both strike me as physically unattractive people with equally unattractive personalities that I would really prefer not to see on my TV or movie screen. Why can't I just dislike Lena Dunham without being called sexist but I can dislike Jonah Hill for pretty much the same reasons? Please note, I am a woman who, if there were such cards, would be a proud card-carrying feminist.

    The comments about Lena Dunham that most people object to are along the lines of "she's too ugly/fat to be naked on my TV". Most of the comments here about Jonah Hill are not about his appearance. The two comments regarding Hill's weight are noticing that he fluctuates a lot and don't say if he looks better or worse the more or less he weighs. The only person who disparaged his looks is you.

  • kimk

    Yeah, my dislike of him is based on that he comes across as a complete douche/awful human being - I feel the same way about Dicaprio, actually. Don't really care about his appearance one way or the other (although he is odd in the sense that he is more attractive in my eyes when heavier). Some people may dislike Lena Dunham for similar reasons (and I don't find her personality particularly interesting myself), but dislike of her often comes across as not about her personality but "I wish that ugly fat woman would stop taking her clothes off and go away".

  • Repo

    I completely agree with you. Based on the articles and comments here, the true answer you would get sadly is this: He's a white male who's been afforded a life of advantage and entitlement and because of this, we're allowed to denigrate him in anyway we see fit because of you know, racism and stuff. He's never endured any REAL hardship, so it's open season.

  • Aaron Schulz

    i was sort of thinking that as well, not so much about lena dunham specifically, but the general dislike for jonah hill, even though to me he seems totally benign. But if you speak ill of someone like dunham, who i barely even register tbh, i dont watch girls and dont have much of an opinion for or against, but if you speak ill of her, you are sexist. I dont get it.

  • Samantha Klein

    I freaking love Graham Norton. Is it because everyone drinks on his show? Pretty much anyone you want to watch is hilarious. American hosts should take notes.

  • Emm82

    The drinks can help, but the guests seem to interview each other as much as Graham does and it works a treat! Best one was June Brown & Lady Gaga - bloody classic!

  • mrsdalgliesh

    If you haven't seen Miriam Margolyes and, then rush to YouTube this minute and be sure to watch the whole episode. Best. Ever.

  • mrsdalgliesh

    It's the drinks but it's also everyone on the couch at the same time. Much of the best stuff happens in interactions between the guests.

  • Three_nineteen

    Will you watch the entire episode when it airs on BBCAmerica a week from today?

  • Guest

    Carey Mulligan is pretty adorable (a term I don't usually like to associate with married 28 year olds).

  • GeneralBulldog

    I've had a soft spot with Mulligan for some time. I mean she is Sally Sparrow.

  • mrsdalgliesh

    I felt sorry for her in that outfit. She pulled and tugged on it the entire episode, clearly uncomfortable with it.

  • It doesn't suit, and I'm sure DeNiro got an eyeful any time she leaned forward.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    You should find the clip of her on Colbert when he did his book club for Gatsby - adorable is exactly the right word for her on that segment.

  • Guest

    +1. Carey and Lauren Mayberry (who is my new crush) could probably break space and time if they were ever put in the same room together with their adorableness (and talent and loveliness).

  • SlurpyDurp

    My main takeaway: Sylvester Stallone was really cool and nice in the beginning.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Is it just me that's completely repulsed by him as a person... I find nothing remotely endearing or interesting about him.

  • Emm82

    Nope, not just you. Quite glad you put this as I always thought the same thing.

  • Az

    Oh, I loathe him. The look on his face when Christopher Plummer won the Oscar and he didn't... Bitch pleeeeeeeease. However, I find his cloying fangirling of Leonardo Di Caprio endlessly amusing and hope to see plenty of it tomorrow.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    I'm interested in how he fluctuates in size so frequently. I have an entirely baseless theory that there are four of him at different sizes and they swap them out depending on the size they need.

  • Robert

    It's a height thing. I'm a little shorter than him and could look like a different person month to month when I'm in a certain 50 pound range. Like average to damn (on the Gabriel Iglesias scale) in a couple weeks. There's not much room on a shorter man for extra weigh.

    The 21 Jump Street weight loss is the only one that shocked me, not even the regain. Even that's explained on an episode of The Simpsons written by Seth Rogen mocking this phenomenon. The studio clearly hired a trainer/nutritionist, controlled everything Jonah did, and then when filming stopped he went right back to his old habits.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    No. It's not just you.
