Jonah Hill does not react well after French TV host insults him in awkward interview

Jonah Hill was not happy with being the butt of a joke on French television – leading to a very awkward interview.

The American actor was appearing on talk show Le Grand Journal to talk about his film War Dogs when he was subjected to heavy teasing by host Ornella Fleury.

Ornella joked: “It’s when I saw you get sodomised by a three-meter-tall demon in This Is the End that I told myself: ‘Now that’s the man of my dreams!’”

Jonah wasn’t laughing, firing back: “And you? I hear you get sodomised pretty often.”

But the TV host ignored Wolf Of Wall Street actor Jonah’s sharp tone, pressing on.

She continued: “Anyway, that’s why I have a sexual fantasy with you, Jonah… 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’d 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!”

All she got was an unimpressed thumbs up, with Jonah complaining: “I’m glad I came to this show to get ridiculed by a local presenter – it’s nice.”

Ornella has since apologised for the controversy, saying that she had been too friendly with the actor after seeing him in so many of his films.

She explained: “No, the reality is that you two have two Oscar nominations and I have two videos on my YouTube account.

“You have made films with Scorsese and Tarantino and me, I have made an advert for Spontex.”
