Jonah Hill took to The Howard Stern Show Tuesday to apologize for a homophobic slur he was caught saying to a paparazzo on camera.
After a cameraman repeatedly hounded Hill and a friend while they were out and about in Los Angeles recently, the Wolf of Wall Street star snapped, saying, "Suck my d**k, you f****t."
"This is a heartbreaking situation for me," a clearly passionate Hill, 30, told Howard Stern Tuesday. "I'm upset because from the day I was born, and publicly, I've been a gay rights activist. Now, this person, you saw a 40-second video. This person had been following me around -- just to give it some context, not excusing what I said in any way -- this person had been following me around all day, had been saying hurtful things about my family, really hurtful things about me personally, and I played into exactly what he wanted and lost my cool."
