Jonah Hill Gets Real About His Fluctuating Weight: People Said ‘I Was Fat and Gross’ (Video)
During a chat on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Jonah Hill openly discussed his fluctuating weight and how it has inspired him to seek messages of community and acceptance in his directorial debut, “Mid90s. “

In the interview with DeGeneres, Hill shared a magazine he created to compliment his coming-of-age film. In the magazine he reflects on his past self as being “this 14 year old kid, being overweight wanting to fit in with these skaters and hip hop kids… not understanding (his) own worth.”

Hill read from his magazine: “I became famous in my late teens and then spent most of my young adult life listening to people say that I was fat and gross and unattractive.”

‘Mid90s’ Film Review: Jonah Hill Scores Solid Directorial Debut With Coming-of-Age Indie
Jonah Hill’s directorial debut is an homage so faithful to its titular era, you’d be hard-pressed to pinpoint the year in which it was actually made. The giveaway, though, is in the intense sense of nostalgia that suffuses every frame of “Mid90s.”

Hill, currently starring in Netflix’s “Maniac,” was 13 in 1996, the same age as his protagonist, Stevie, who’s struggling to make sense of his unhappy life. His older brother, Ian, has a lot of rage issues, most of which he takes out on Stevie in violent fashion. And his young single mom, Dabney, is just trying to hold things together.

Facing down a summer with nothing to do and no one to do it with, Stevie finds a new family among the teens who hang out at a nearby L.A. skate shop. Ray (Na-kel Smith) works there, but he seems to be the only

‘Mid90s’ Review: Jonah Hill’s Skaterat Coming-of-Age Movie

‘Mid90s’ Review: Jonah Hill’s Skaterat Coming-of-Age Movie
Jonah Hill doesn’t appear in a single scene of Mid90s, but you can feel his presence in every scene of this comedy spiked with touching gravity. Making his directing debut with a script he wrote himself, Hill shapes this coming-of-age tale like a European art film (think Francois Truffaut’s 400 Blows), letting atmosphere, character and glimmers of feeling take precedence over narrative thrust. The technique may put off fans expecting a raucous take on Superbad or 21 Jump Street and its sequel, both of which Hill cowrote. But

Review: MID90S, Jonah Hill's Debut As Director Is Funny and Humane

Eleven years after Superbad finally made him stand out as a comedic actor, and seven since Moneyball turned him into an Oscar nominee, Jonah Hill debuts as writer/director with Mid90s, a coming-of-age film that’s funny and, at the same time, reveals Hill as a sensitive filmmaker who's interested in capturing natural moments coming from the interaction of a group of young actors without much previous experience. From the first moments we realize that Hill is committed to something as personal as what Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg did with the script of Superbad, however, Mid90s is not a direct comedy and is closer to the work of directors like Richard Linklater, and even Larry Clark, than to Judd Apatow’s school, from which Hill graduated a...

Jonah Hill and Edie Falco in Conversation: Hollywood Humility, Performance Anxiety, and Much More — Exclusive
First-time filmmaker Jonah Hill’s imminent debut feature “Mid90s” harkens back to the multi-hyphenate’s own misbegotten youth amongst the skate rats of his native Los Angeles. In celebration of the film’s upcoming release, indie distributor A24 asked the newly minted writer-director to interview a handful of celebrities he admires most, including his “Superbad” co-star Michael Cera, Kathryn Hahn, Q-Tip, skateboarder Mark Gonzalez, and his own sister Beanie Feldstein, with an eye towards chatting about their own hidden inner lives, especially the lives of their youth.

The interviews all appear in A24’s own recurring zine, together under the title “Inner Children.” IndieWire is proud to exclusively debut Hill’s interview with his self-professed “favorite actress,” Edie Falco. As Hill says in the interview, he “wanted to interview a bunch of people that I really admire, essentially about the idea that we all have versions of ourselves that we’re most embarrassed of.

Jonah Hill Interviews Michael Cera About His Post-‘Superbad’ Life Crisis and Their Decade of Friendship
Superbad” costars Jonah Hill and Michael Cera reunited for an interview featured in Hill’s limited edition zine “Inner Children,” released in conjunction with A24. The indie distributor is behind the release of Hill’s directorial debut “Mid90s” and asked the writer-director to interview a handful of celebrities he admires most, including Cera, Edie Falco, skateboarder Mark Gonzalez, and more. Vulture published an excerpt from Hill’s interview with Cera, which includes Cera’s unenthusiastic outlook on his “Superbad” days.

“If I think back to myself in my teenage years, it’s alarming,” Cera said. “I have this footage of us from the ‘Superbad’ press tour and even watching that and looking at myself when I was like 19, it’s really disturbing.”

Hill praised Cera for making the decision with his career to go down a quieter path when things got too hectic following “Superbad.” Throughout his twenties, Cera made

20 Crazy Details Behind The Making Of Superbad

Many of the basic teen comedy share many of the same qualities: lots of partying and crude humor. However, the comedy Superbad managed to take the simplistic formula and developed it into something more. Of course, the basic elements of teen comedy are still there but with the addition of better dialogue, unforgettable characters, and, at its heart, the idea of friendships being tested when we finally have to grow up.

Developed from the minds of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the two childhood friends brought to life elements of their own childhood to the big screen. Not only did the film capture the spirit of teen life-- it also helped start the careers of many of its young actors and actresses. Although they may have started with raunchy teen comedy roots, many of the stars of the movie have moved on to develop significant careers in Hollywood. Even over decade after its initial debut,

Salma Hayek Joins Tiffany Haddish & Rose Byrne In Paramount’s ‘Limited Partners’
Exclusive: Salma Hayek will star alongside Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne in Limited Partners, the Paramount Pictures comedy that Miguel Arteta will direct from a script by Sam Pitman & Adam Cole-Kelly. Production begins in October.

Haddish and Byrne play two hard-charging best girlfriends who build a juggernaut company and find their relationship tested when they are made a big buyout offer. Suddenly all the differences that made them the perfect odd-couple partners put them at war, threatening their business and personal relationships. Hayek plays the exec who makes the buyout offer, and becomes the corporate puppet master pulling the strings in creating acrimony among the partners. That drives the duo into a display of a one-upsmanship fued that gives the comedy shades of Superbad meets Bridesmaids. Jon Gonda is shepherding for Paramount.

The script was strong enough to land Haddish’s fall slot as she was pursued by multiple studios

Seth Rogen Gets Pickled in Strange New Comedy

Seth Rogen Gets Pickled in Strange New Comedy
Seth Rogen has lined up his next comedy project and it sounds like something only he could possibly pull off. Rogen and his longtime producing partner Evan Goldberg are in negotiations with Sony to produce the Seth Rogen Pickle Movie, that will see Rogen play a man who is preserved in a pickle barrel for 100 years, only to emerge after a century in the middle of modern day, hipster Brooklyn, New York. Yes, really.

The untitled is based on the novella Sell Out, published by The New Yorker in 2013. The story sees a young man by the name of Herschel Greenbaum, who works at a pickle factory in the early 1900s. One day he falls into a factory pickle barrel and, as stated previously, he reemerges 100 years later in Brooklyn. It's a very bizarre play on the whole man out of time/fish out of water story.

‘Mid90s’ Trailer: Jonah Hill Gets Nostalgic With Throwback Teen Skate Drama

The evolution of Jonah Hill has been incredible, even thrilling to watch. The actor, like many of the Judd Apatow brat pack bunch, tuned the acclaim of those early comedies “Superbad,” “Get Him To The Greek”) into personal success outside of that sphere. But, Hill, who now has two Oscar nominations to his credit and two Golden Globes (“Moneyball” and “War Dogs”) has exceeded all expectations, eclipsed his pals.

Jonah Hill movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, including ‘Moneyball,’ ‘Superbad,’ ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’
Jonah Hill managed to pick up two Oscar nominations before his 30th birthday. It is a pretty impressive fete since the bulk of Hill’s early film work had been in outrageous comedies like “Superbad” and “21 Jump Street,” which seldom are recognized by Academy voters. He did take some serious roles in “Moneyball” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” which earned him those two nominations.

This year Hill turns his sights on television where he and Oscar Winner Emma Stone just launched their new television series “Maniac” on Netflix. It tells the story of people who take part in an experimental drug test that doesn’t work out as planned. The new drug is supposed to solve the problems of whoever it is that takes it, but that actually doesn’t happen.

New to Streaming: ‘Damsel,’ ‘Maniac,’ ‘Clouds of Sils Maria,’ ‘Custody,’ ‘The Witch,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’re highlighting the noteworthy titles that have recently hit platforms. Check out this week’s selections below and an archive of past round-ups here.

Clouds of Sils Maria (Olivier Assayas)

Movies about making movies often get a bad rap; there’s just a presumed pretentiousness that goes along with watching filmmakers and actors defending their craft. So when it turns out that Clouds of Sils Maria is actually a beautifully directed and acted defense of the timelessness and universal value of storytelling in all forms, what could have been a European Birdman actually becomes something so much more. – Brian R.

Where to Stream: FilmStruck

Custody (Xavier Legrand)

It didn’t win the Oscar for best live action short in 2014, but Xavier Legrand’s Just Before Losing Everything was by far my favorite nominee.

‘Maniac’ Creator Patrick Somerville Wants His Show to Feel ‘Reminiscent Only of Itself’

‘Maniac’ Creator Patrick Somerville Wants His Show to Feel ‘Reminiscent Only of Itself’
Maniac,” Netflix’s latest high-profile series, is technically an adaptation of the Norwegian series of the same name, but the end result is a drama that bears little resemblance with its source material.

Helmed by “True Detective” alum Cary Fukunaga and written by novelist and “The Leftovers” alum Patrick Somerville, the 10-episode drama debuts on Friday. And it’s a big, ambitious, genre-skipping adventure through the human mind.

“When Cary and I met, we both that the same kind of general sensibility that it’s not worth making something that seems like anything else,” Somerville said in an interview with TheWrap. “There’s so much television, there’s so many new shows coming out, that it feels like a valuable element is to make a show that feels reminiscent only of itself.”
