Jonah Hill has apologised for using a homophobic slur.

The Wolf Of Wall Street actor was clearly distressed as he phoned-in to speak to Howard Stern today (June 3) to explain his actions, after he was heard telling a photographer:

“Suck my d**k, you f***ot.”

Today, the actor – previously a vocal supporter of gay rights, said:

“I played into what he wanted and lost my cool, and in that moment, I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people.

“I’m not at all defending my choice of words, but I am happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say.”

He added:

“It would break my heart to think that anyone would think… that I would be against anyone for their sexuality.”
