Los Angeles - Jonah Hill took a pay cut for The Wolf of Wall Street.

The actor was so desperate to play debauched stockbroker Jordan Belfort's sidekick, Donnie Azoff, in Martin Scorsese's Oscar nominated movie that he accepted a pay cheque of just $60,000.

He made the admission on radio programme The Stern Show, which aired this morning (21.01.14) in the US, with the show's official Twitter account posting:


Jonah's gamble has more than paid off since the funnyman was nominated for both a Golden Globe and Academy Award for his stellar performance alongside Hollywood heavyweight Leonardo DiCaprio.

The 30-year-old star also discussed his infamous 2013 interview with Rolling Stone magazine in which he refused to answer the reporter's jokey queries.

The Stern Show account added on Twitter:

Jonah's eyes "jumped out of their sockets'' last summer when asked what kind of farter he was by the publication, to which he scathingly replied: ''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." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
