Jonah Hill Got In Trouble With Netflix By Using Fart Machine While Promoting Don't Look Up

Jonah Hill Got In Trouble With Netflix By Using Fart Machine While Promoting Don't Look Up

The actor said his castmates weren't very impressed, either

Jonah Hill has confessed to getting in trouble with Netflix and p***ing off castmates by whipping out a fart machine at any available opportunity, but he’s vowed to keep on using it. You can see him show off his beloved fart machine here: 

Hill appeared on The Tonight Show to promote his new flick Don’t Look Up, and said that while out and about promoting the film he brought along a digital fart machine that was given to him by Julia Louis-Dreyfus after they wrapped on a previous film. 

He explained: "We did this big fancy press conference and I did the fart machine when someone was talking about climate change. 

"My cast mates did not find it funny. Meryl Streep, being the OG Legend that she is, did find it funny, which is why I ride with her any time, day or night."

Hill said the movie’s director Adam McKay told him that Netflix had even 'formally asked him multiple times' to tell Hill to stop using the machine during promotion as they 'didn't find it funny', but admitted that it only encouraged him to use it more frequently. 

He added: "So I just want to say officially, I love you Netflix, I love working with you, I am a huge fan, I watch your streamer.

"But no corporate entity will ever silence my digital farts, mother f***er."

Don’t Look Up lands on Netflix on 24 December, and alongside Hill and Streep, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Timothée Chalamet, Ron Perlman, Ariana Grande, Scott Mescudi, Himesh Patel, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Chiklis, Tomer Sisley and Cate Blanchett. 

So basically, more stars than you can see in a night sky, which leads us on nicely to the plot - as it centres on a pair of astronomers who embark on a mission to warn the world about an approaching comet that threatens to destroy the planet.

Although it’s out on Netflix on Christmas Eve it will have a limited cinematic release on 10 December for those too eager to wait. 

Speaking about the movie, DiCaprio - who plays one of the astronomers - said: "Adam has an unparalleled ability to spark conversation with humour and timely stories.


"I knew when I read his script that it was incredibly unique, as it struck an important chord concerning the modern world we live in.

"Adam has woven an incredibly timely message about society, how we communicate, our current priorities, and the climate crisis into an absurdly funny yet important movie."

Don't Look Up will be available in cinemas from 10 December and on Netflix from 24 December.
