    Weird hearing an accomplished actor like him talking about skateboarding like that, it's easy to forget that they grew up and did a lot of the same things we did. Ima gonna have to see that mid90s movie

    What about "True Story", that was a solid performance under my opinion, seeing him play a more serious role and giving the audience the opportunity to see that.

    I like Jonah Hill so much, but his anti-mainstream hollywood is most mainstream hollywood/LA thing there is. Dude, definitely loves him some tacos and going for a hike.

    I saw Jonah Hill in a grocery store in LA today. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn't want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.

    He said, "Oh, like you're doing now?" I was taken aback, and all I could say was "Huh?" but he kept cutting me off and going "huh? huh? huh?" and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw Thom trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like "Sir, you need to pay for those first." At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

    When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually "to prevent any electrical infetterence," and then turned around and winked at me. I don't even think that's a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

    What I don’t like ab movies now is that like they spend so much time on what shots look best and how to get the perfect angle but like it’s all ab the story, the actors and the emotion, nobody is like “yeah the story was bad but like the shots were great so I loved it” no it’s ab the story people don’t care ab the shots if the story is good enough
