Jonah Hill on Anti-Gay Slur: 'What I Said in That Moment Was Disgusting' — VIDEO

J_hill

Jonah Hill spoke with Howard Stern this morning after TMZ aired a video of Hill hurling a homophobic slur at a photographer.

Said Hill:

"This is a heartbreaking situation for me...I'm upset...From the day I was born, and publicly, I've been a gay rights activist...This person had been following me around all day saying hurtful things. I played into exactly what he wanted and I said a disgusting word...It's bulls--t and I shouldn't have said that. I'm happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word. What I won't allow is for anyone - it would break my heart to think that anyone - especially with all the work that I've done and all the loved ones that I have - that I would be against anyone for their sexuality."

Neil Patrick Harris Tells Howard Stern He Was Offered Job as Letterman's 'Late Show' Replacement: AUDIO

Nphlateshow

Neil Patrick Harris sat down with Howard Stern today to talk about his career, how coming out affected it, and what we may see from him in the future. The former star of How I Met Your Mother and current glamazon of Broadway (in Hedwig and the Angry Inch) told Stern that CBS approached him to host the Late Show after David Letterman bid the program farewell. NPH was looking for something a little more theatrical, though.

Vulture reports:

"[Les Moonves and CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler] called me in and sat me down and asked if [Late Show] was something I'd be interested in doing," Harris says. "In that instance, I felt like I knew what my skillsets were and I kind of knew what it is that I wanted to do after [How I Met Your Mother] … so I was surprised he pitched me that idea," he says. He wasn't interested in the 11:30 slot, nor was he interested in the 12:30 one. "I think I would get bored of the repetition fast, and the structure of it is so set," Harris says. "I don't have any interest in doing monologue, commercial, sketch, guest, guest, guest, musical act, good night."

Which is not to say Harris wouldn't be interested in another kind of show. "I liked this weekly variety thing," he says. "I think if it's weekly, and people really want to see it, and you trust that there's a lot of really great shit on there, then you're gonna get the guests to want to come on there — a weekly thing you'd have more time to prep for stuff, you could pre-tape stuff that would be really exciting, you could flesh it out more."

Alec Baldwin Goes After Anderson Cooper For Labeling His 'Toxic Queen' Twitter Rant As Homophobic: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-07-24 at 1.23.15 PM

On Tuesday, Alec Baldwin stopped by The Howard Stern Show to discuss, among other things, his Twitter rant last month against a Daily Mail reporter in which he characterized the reporter as a 'toxic little queen' and called on his followers to 'straighten out this f*cking little bitch.'

While on the subject, Baldwin lashed out at Anderson Cooper for posting the following tweet in the wake of the controversy:

"Why does #AlecBaldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a "queen" they would be vilified."

Said Baldwin:

"Anderson Cooper has a job to do. And that job is to try to reinforce his credibility in the gay community after the fact that you couldn't get him out of the closet for 10 years with a canister of tear gas. Now he's the sheriff. Now he's running around writing everybody a ticket!"

In an earlier article we reported on, Baldwin attempted to downplay accusations that his rant was homophobic, saying:

"The idea of me calling this guy a 'queen' and that being something that people thought is homophobic...a queen to me has a different meaning. It's somebody who's just above. It doesn't have any necessarily sexual connotations. To me a queen...I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny. It doesn't have to be a definite sexual connotation, or a homophobic connotation. To me those are people who think the rules don't apply to them."

Andy pointed out that 'queen' appears to be one of Baldwin's more popular slurs. In 2011, he made a few headlines with a similar Twitter rant, although that one was directed at an 'uptight queen' Starbucks barista named Jay with an 'attitude problem.'
