Jonah Hill definitely has a lot to be proud of. He managed to be accepted by The Academy for his performance in ‘Moneyball’ after starring in comedy hits such as ‘Superbad’ and ‘Night at the Museum’, but in gaining recognition, he seems to have lost his sense of humor.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone to promote Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s apocalypse comedy ‘This is The End’, Hill refused to answer what he describes as “dumb” questions. Hill refused to describe his workout routine saying it was “of little relevance” and then refused to answer a question about his “farting style”, labeling the question “dumb”.

"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," Hill responded.

Hill’s ‘This is The End’ co-stars, Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Danny McBride, were interviewed beforehand and were more than happy to answer the magazine’s “dumb question”. In fact, Rogen warned Rolling Stone that Hill was “serious”, but unfortunately didn’t provide any advice.

Hill, who recently completed filming Martin Scorsese’s ‘Wolf of Wall Street’, also avoided questions about his masturbatory habits, but was more than happy to discuss his success and Judd Apatow’s mislabeling of his personality.

"I've done one of the biggest challenges you can do in Hollywood, which is transition from being a comedic actor to being a serious actor, and I'm really prideful of that," he explained.

"I could have made a billion dollars doing every big comedy of the last 10 years and didn't, in order to form a whole other life for myself. Now I have fulfillment doing both."

“Yeah, there was probably an angry time for me. But I couldn't be a less angry person. Judd maybe thinks of himself that way. But I haven't worked for him in five years. I adore him. But I'm f**king 29 years old and not some angry kid," he said, when asked of Apatow’s assessment of Hill as being “angry,nerdy”.

In ‘This is The End’, all of the actors are playing a version of themselves. Hill’s character is “overly nice in a really false way” and is “really into fame and success”, which he stresses is the “polar opposite” of who he is in reality.
