Weird Celebrity News: Goldfish Pees In Jonah Hill's Mouth, Spide
Weird and unusual things sometimes happen in the lives of celebrities. Here's a roundup of this week's strangest stories...

Goldfish relieved itself in Jonah Hill's mouth
Actor Jonah Hill was left with a very bad taste in his mouth while filming a goldfish stunt in The Wolf Of Wall Street when the creature relieved itself as he pretended to eat it.

Unfortunately for the actor, that was ample time for the slithering extra to go to the toilet.

He says, "This is not exaggerated for storytelling purposes... I put the goldfish in my mout...

He explains, "It was the most unhygienic scenario I've ever been in... It was like an 18-hour day in this enclosed airplane set and there's a guy's b**ls, like, three centimetres away from you. Usually when I h...

Jonah Hill has confirmed Leonardo DiCaprio was throwing up on the set of 'The Wolf of Wall Street'.
The actor decided to take revenge on his co-star for "basically beat[ing] the c**p" out of him for six months while filming Martin Scorsese's new black comedy, and tricked Leonardo into eating so much sushi that the A-list actor was "throwing up into a waste bin".
Jonah used his improvisation skills to insist, "No, you have it", in every take of a scene in which his character was supposed to scoff the Japanese delicacy, and the raw fish obviously didn't agree with Leonardo.
