Jonah Hill has apologized for using a homophobic slur, calling it "disgusting."
Over the weekend, TMZ posted a video of the Oscar-nominated actor lashing out at a paparazzo, saying, "Suck my d---, you f----." Following the confrontation, Hill went on Howard Stern's radio show Tuesday to apologize.
Good to know I'm not the only one who needs pizza to make it through a long night at the Oscars.
With Ellen DeGeneres serving up laughs along with slices, disarming the starry crowd with stunts like a pizza delivery for the starving captive audience and a Superstar Selfie that temporarily broke Twitter (and during the taking of which Meryl Streep delightfully blurted, "I've never tweeted before!"), even the Oscars' inevitable dull patches felt less painful than usual.
Sunday marked Ellen DeGeneres' sophomore outing as host of the Academy Awards, and the typically tame comedienne offered up some jokes that were more barbed than usual during her opening monologue.
In her intro to the show, DeGeneres took jabs at everyone from June Squibb to Jennifer Lawrence.
Third time's a charm?
Jonah Hill returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend to host the show for the third time, and his opening monologue featured a hilarious cameo from his Wolf of Wall Street co-star (and, apparently, mentor) Leonardo DiCaprio.
Other highlights from the episode included a couple of sketches about the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi, and the much-welcomed return of Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong's former porn stars-turned-infomercial representatives. Check out some of the night's best segments below:
It's quite a week for those who enjoy rugged armchair escapism of the historical epic variety. First came the three nights of Discovery's enjoyable gold-rush melodrama Klondike (repeated in its entirety on Saturday, starting at 9:30 am/8:30c), during which Jack London (played by Johnny Simmons) is heard rhapsodizing, "What you're looking at here is a walking, talking novel," as he surveys the squalor and violent desperation teeming throughout Dawson City, the miniseries' Yukon frontier setting.
