Jonah Hill’s “SNL” opening monologue got an extra dose of panty-dropping star power when Leonardo DiCaprio crashed the stage.
DiCaprio came out to set Hill straight after he began his monologue by acting like a big shot. But things quickly got back on track when the two re-enacted the famous “Jack, I’m flying” scene from “Titanic.”
Aww, we never knew we wanted to see a Leo/Jonah cuddle session, but here we are.
Hill, who recently received his second Academy Award nomination, marveled at his fortune during his opening monologue, but was a little put off when audience members began asking questions about Leonardo DiCaprio instead.
“I call up Marty Scorsese, I say, ‘Marty its JH. I’m ready to get in the ring together.’ He says, ‘Finally,’” Hill explained after reaching his breaking point. “Then I say, ‘Should we get DiCaprio on board?’ And Marty says, ‘I don’t know if he can handle it. Sure, he’s a movie star and puts teenage girls in the seats. But we need a real actor like you.’”
Hill’s attitude quickly changed when DiCaprio joined him on stage, who scolded him and reminded him to be “humble” and “gracious,” because he’s a “real actor now.”
“Remember when we were on set and I’d great really nervous?” Hill asked. “Can we do the thing that we did every time? The thing that made me feel safe.”
After his asking, a reluctant DiCaprio decided on giving Jonah what he had asked for and both of them then re-enacted a scene from Leo’s famous film, Titanic. The scene in particular where Leo holds Kate at the edge of the boat and she expresses that she feels like flying! That’s the scene they re-enacted.
The whole charade brought the atmosphere to a comfort again and the show went on.
