Jonah Hill's been changin' it up for us lately, hasn't he?
It's kind of like watching a completely different person!
But as Jonah goes through a transition in his life (following a much healthier lifestyle, delving into more dramatic films), he reminisces on the Superbad days:
One of the greatest moments of my career was on the road promoting Superbad with Michael Cera and Chris Mintz-Plasse. We were showing the movie at colleges. The kids were losing their minds. But then there's that moment in the sleeping-bag scene when Michael and I say 'I love you' to each other, and all those kids kinda squirmed in their seats in the weirdest way.
James L. Brooks wrote the Superbad gang an e-mail after he saw it, and it was really beautiful for us because we all worship him, obviously. He watched Superbad with his son, and there was a moment where he looked at his son and realized his son couldn't handle the realization that he loved his best friend.
The great romance of your youth is your best friend at that age. But when a comedy takes you from laughing your ass off to feeling something without a moment's notice — that's just different. It just is.
Stop! You're making us cry!!!
