Jonah Hill's Twitter troubles

Jonah Hill would feel awful if Leonardo DiCaprio confronted him about being unfollowed on Twitter.

The actor had a clear out on the social networking site and meant to get rid of everyone, but accidentally forgot to click unfollow for his The Wolf of Wall Street co-star.

Now he feels deleting him would be too obvious to Leonardo.

"People noticed I only follow him and I don't want to have to explain an awkward thing like, 'Why did you unfollow me on Twitter?'" he laughed to BBC Radio 1 host Nick Grimshaw.

"I left him by accident but if I now unfollow him it looks like a very specific decision. I must have messed it up, now I can't decide to unfollow him!"

Jonah is known largely for his role in comedy movies, but branched out to drama with hits like Moneyball and his latest, The Wolf of Wall Street.

The 30-year-old was desperate for a part in the film, which is directed by Martin Scorsese, but admits his agents didn't show a great deal of faith.

"When it's Martin Scorsese, everyone in the world wants it and I didn't hear back for two months," he remembered.

"I was freaking out because [my agents] were saying, 'Oh they're seeing this person that's better than you...' Honestly it's good; I like to be coming from the bottom. You wanna fight for something."

Jonah loved his time on the set of The Wolf of Wall Street, but admits it's very different to previous films he's done.

He also wasn't keen on having to learn about the stock market for the movie, which is about real-life stockbroker Jordan Belfort.

"It is more serious, the sets are totally different," he revealed.

"Movies like Superbad or 21 Jump Street, the goal is to have fun. It's not like you're trying to change the world. But when you're making a drama and it's based on real peoples' lives you have a responsibility to them."
