Jonah Hill and Matthew Morrison’s bitch-fight continues


I don’t know why I didn’t cover the original salvo launched in this bitch-fight. Maybe it was because I’m kind of creeped out by Thin Jonah Hill? I know that’s wrong and I should be happy that he’s healthier, but Thin Jonah is still weird to me. Anyway, last week, Jonah Hill was on Jimmy Fallon, and he told some anecdotes about Hollywood. He ended up calling out Matthew Morisson as a bully, telling two stories:

“This publicity woman is giving us these instructions and no one is paying attention. And Zooey (Deschanel) starts talking to me. And I’m, like, whatever I don’t want to get in trouble or anything like that. And she keeps talking to me, and the woman goes, ‘Jonah, please be quiet while I’m talking.’ This guy (Matthew Morrison) piggybacks this woman calling me out. I’ve never met this guy before in my entire life. He goes, ‘Yeah Jonah, can’t you stop talking for one second?’ And everyone laughed at me! I wasn’t even talking to anybody!”

So, I’ve already got in my head that I don’t like this guy. I’m sure he’s a good human being but you don’t throw a dude under the bus that’s just sitting there being quiet… He bullied me. He’s a big timer on Fox, I’ve got stars in my eyes and he’s been to the dance before, I’m just some movie guy trying to make it in that world.

Cut to a couple weeks later… and I see this guy, Matthew Morrison, and he’s talking to one of the Gossip Girl guys, Chace Crawford… I go, ‘They don’t see me, I’m gonna get some scoop, I’m gonna call this dude out, I’m gonna like bust up his conversation.’ And I wander up behind these two guys and I’m eavesdropping and I can’t really hear what’s going on and then I hear, ‘Something, something, something… Jonah Hill.’ And then they both start laughing! And so I’m the punchline in this guy’s joke? He doesn’t even know I’m at this party. What is his deal?”

After Jonah told those stories to Fallon, he challenged Morrison to “bring his s–t” the next time. Well, Morrison has responded:

Morrison says: “I heard that Jonah said I should bring my sh-t next time… Well guess what, this is next time. Jonah, pick a date and I will meet you on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and we will settle this like men. Because nobody messes with someone from musical theatre.”

It’s cute, I guess. I thought Jonah seemed kind of silly and paranoid about Matthew, especially when it seems pretty clear (to me) that Matthew was just trying to play-fight and mess around. Like, even though Jonah was just telling the story for effect, you could tell that it actually did kind of bother him. Whatever… Matthew handled it the right way.

    I think Matthew Morrison is a huge asshat. He’s so into his own hype.

  2. brin says:

    Team Jonah!

  3. mln76 says:

    Kaiser. If you watched the entire show there is a point when the second guest comes on and he admits that the whole thing was a bit.
    This is the disadvantage of hulu and the like. The media is too lazy to get the whole story.

  4. tapioca says:

    Sounds like he should be asking for an apology from the lady who initially misidentified him as the culprit, not Matthew Morrison – but then that wouldn’t make for such a mediocre talkshow anecdote, so cherish those moments when the tolerable one from Glee is making you his punchline!

  5. Kristen says:

    Thin Jonah *is* creepy.

  6. Lol says:

    This is making me not like Hill. And I really really liked him. Its not even that I like Mathew Morrison, I don’t but Jonah is being a whiney bitch.

  7. whitedaisy says:

    If this is all true, granted, a big if: then Jonah needs to develop a thicker skin. (It would help him in his efforts to avoid stress eating as well, although he doesn’t look quite right this thin.)

  8. Samigirl says:

    mln76 is right. It’s just something they were doing for funsies 🙂 I like them both. Matthew’s statement made me lol.

  9. Eve says:

    I hate it when people do that thing of whispering to each other, then they look at someone (randomly or on purpose), and then giggle. It is f*cking childish, I remember that from when I was 12 years old — and I already hated it back then. The funny thing is, when I got fed up and went to confront whoever was trying to do that to me, they didn’t have an answer, they didn’t know how to keep the joke going on, but they also couldn’t deny that they’re trying to bully me.

    Finally, I hate Glee and all things Glee related so if this is an actual bitchfight, I’m team Jonah Hill.

  10. Sue says:

    Sorry but I have never understand the appeal of Matthew Morrison.

  11. Quest says:


    Like Matthew Morrison’s video challenge to “bring his shit” would scare the crap out of anyone (eyeroll) I am waiting for the manicured nails to come out scratching.

    Seriously, they are both whinny little bitches

  12. neelyo says:

    I don’t get him either, Sue. He’s like Lyle Lovett’s slightly better looking cousin.

  13. Gal says:

    Team Jonah!!!

  14. Dizzybenny says:

    team no one!!just grow some balls both of you sheeeeesh!!

  15. Kaboom says:

    I never considered Jonah Hill funny (just like the majority of the Apatow gang) and with his career not going anywhere at the moment, he seems desperate to create any kind of buzz. On the other hand I can see Morrison’s career taking a similar turn since his success is closely tied to Glee, which hasn’t really kicked ass since Season 1.

  16. Naya says:

    It was funny to see Jonah get all worked up but it also was pretty juvenile. Granted, Matthew wasn’t being all that grown up himself. But Jonah should have said something to Matthew at the time rather than complaining about it on TV. I would not classify it as a bitchfight. At this point it is more goofing around than anything.

  17. Isabel says:

    Why is this a story? Since its not real?

  18. michkabibbles says:

    yeah, except he’s in one of the best reviewed movies of the year, has some oscar buzz around his role and has his own show debuting on fox in a few weeks. he’s totally tanking right now.

  19. Kim says:

    This is a obviously a fake stunt by both. Matthews musical theater response is pretty funny.

  20. Leticia says:

    Team Jonah Hill.

  21. nikki says:

    That’s exactly what I was going to say!
    Plus, mln76 just pointed out that this was a JOKE.

  22. Happy21 says:

    Not on a team. Like em both. Am sure in another month we’ll see photos of them with arms around each other smiling and this was really never what it was made out to be.

    Honestly, Thin Jonah kinda creeps me out too. Has since I first saw him but I didn’t want to be a hater, hating on someone for getting healthy but he just looks wrong.

  23. Annie says:

    I think this is kind of a cute bitchfight….not a fan of MM but i do like his response…
    Lastly, Jonah’s career is on the upswing with his role in Moneyball… He’s getting great reviews!

  24. Rachael says:

    Team Jonah … I thought his story was hilarious. It doesn’t matter that he was being paranoid, because that’s what makes it all the more funny/ridiculous. He was obviously just playing it up for the comedy factor anyway. For anyone to take it seriously is absurd. I’m calling myself Team Jonah just cause the story was so funny the way he told it.

    I don’t watch Glee so I don’t have any opinion on Matthew Morrison, but I did think his response was fairly amusing. Hopefully it’ll eventually turn into a funny bit on Fallon.

  25. Ron says:

    Jonah is kind of like Oprah, they both look better with some weight on them for some reason.

  26. Hollowdoll says:

    I thought it was a funny story. I found Jonah funnier than morrison.

  27. Turtle Dove says:

    Eve – You’re on the mark with your comment.

    Just to point out… bullies have a tendency to talk down a confrontation and diminish the feelings of the recipient, so Team Jonah on this one too.

    Never watched Glee. Can’t stand it based on the stupid hype.

  28. Christine says:

    Thank you for validating my feelings on ThinJonah. The voice I know from the movies does NOT fit the face and body of thinJonah. Also, he is not really attractive thin or heavy. That is really unfortunate.

  29. girlwithapearl says:

    It’s so clear who’s side you’re on. But bullies are the best at making out that they’re just messing around. it just lets them get away with being dicks.

  30. Debsa says:

    Jonah = douche…

  31. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Of course it’s a joke, else he would’ve gone after Deschannels for getting him in trouble and leaving him to hold the bag. For every stoolie, toadie or irong lung enthusiast there is a ‘who, me?’ instigator and they’re the bigger threat to our integrity and agency, by my troth (that’s what sophisticates and George Eliot enthusiasts say).

    You’ll just have to work to get that skateboard you want, because that type makes you jump through hoops and finds reasons not to let you play with it over and over again. You’d be paying for it anyway.

  32. only1shmoo says:

    Every time I hear “Summer Rain”, I think of the late George Carlin dissing this type of’soft rock’ that is neither rock, nor music, but just soft, and sung by guys who belong in a group called “Men Without Testicles”…ah, R.I.P. George

  33. Hannah says:

    I think this “Team” stuff is nonsense. Why do people always say that when stuff like this pops up?

    I applaud Jonah for losing the weight because it is a tough thing to do. He is cute and funny and I want to put him in my pocket. I find Matthew EXTREMELY hot and talented and want to put him in my bed.

  34. Happy21 says:

    @Hannah – – LMAO! Thanks for that!

  35. melangie says:

    too much weed Jonah- real story or not- he’s all about being paranoid

  36. Nicky says:

    Jonah’s career is by no means floundering. The Apatow gang (Hill, Rogen, Segel, Franco and Baruchel) are some of most hardworking actors around. All have been in the industry since their teens and have tasted success early on (Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared), followed by long spells of unemployment because they weren’t what Hollywood considered “leading men”. Instead of giving up, they used the time to learn how to write so they could cast themselves in their own movies, which is what they are doing now. Regardless of what anyone thinks of them personally, these guys have worked their butts off for years to get where they are. Good luck to them, they deserve it!

  37. Cerulean says:

    Thin Jonah looks like a serial killer.

  38. Ben says:

    I think he just has ex-fat-boy insecurity. I relate, but… chill. And yes, he now looks like he may or may not have chained up penguins in his basement.

  39. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Team Jonah! Bump Morrison.

  40. JaneWonderfalls says:

    @Hannah The same way you get to spew your comments against Team. Is the same way I get to say Team Jonah. It’s free media and freedom of speech and expression,so go sit down somewhere and let grown ups talk.

  41. Kat says:

    Matthew Morrison is so far up his own ass I’m surprised he can see straight. Is anyone even remotely surprised that MM and Dame Goopy Fishsticks are BFFs?

  42. Naya says:

    Well, I don’t doubt you are Team Jonah since you both have immature over the top responses to comments that aren’t serious.

  43. ShanKat says:

    I’m glad this turned out to be a bit. Otherwise…what a couple of cunts.

  44. crtb says:

    Jonah Hill sounds like a big fat pussy. Grow some balls! Were your feelings hurt because someone asked you to stop talking. Boo hoo! Get over it. If that’s the worst thing anyone has ever said to you, consider yourself lucky.

  45. Claire78 says:

    Hate Matthew Morrison. So up himself. Go Jonah!!!
