Jonah Hill Calls Instagram the ‘Cigarettes of This Time’ as He Smokes a Cigarette: ‘It Is the biggest Killer’

Jonah Hill is one of the most well-known celebrities of Hollywood. The actor’s career first took off with movies like Superbad, but, over the years, the star has proven to be a bit of a powerhouse when it comes to the movie industry. From writing to directing, there isn’t anything Hill seems to shy away from. The popular A-lister even started his own company, Strong Baby Productions. In one of his recent interviews with GQ, Hill delved into his career, day-to-day life, and what he really thinks of social media platforms like Instagram.

In August 2021, GQ shared a feature of Hill that showcased the many different sides of the famous actor. In “Jonah Hill Is SuperGood,” Adam McKay, a fellow director, and Hill reflected on the past, present, and future of Hill’s career. 

There is no denying the actor’s 20s were marked with some wild and crazy times, but Hill admitted that as he gets older he continues to stray away from that type of lifestyle. In the conversation, Hill explained, “All my 20s, I wasn’t really looking inward. I was just running toward success. Or trying to find success. And when I was 30, I was like, I’ve always wanted to be a director, but if I don’t get off this train now and write Mid90s, I’m not going to do it. And I hit pause. I took three or four years to reshape things.”

Directing and creating definitely seem to be at the forefront of Hill’s mind these days, but that isn’t all. 

Jonah Hill called Instagram ‘the cigarettes of the time’ as he smoked a cigarette 

Hill’s hair isn’t the only thing he has changed over the past few years. Focusing on living a more quiet lifestyle, Hill lives in Malibu. When he isn’t working he likes to surf, walk his dog, or hang out with his nephews. However, there is one thing that Hill can’t seem to quit, and that is smoking. 

Interestingly, while smoking a cigarette during his GQ interview, Hill actually called Instagram “the cigarettes of this time.” The actor stated, “It is the killer. It is death.” Though many can probably see why he chose the metaphor, the irony behind Hill’s opinion and his smoking habit did not go unnoticed. 

Here are 10 things Jonah Hill can’t live without

In addition to McKay’s interview, Hill also appeared in GQ‘s “10 Essentials.” In the short video the 37 year-old highlighted the 10 items he simply could not live without. 

He began with Celsius’ Sparkling Kiwi Guava drink, or as Hill fondly called it, his director juice. Speaking of, the “Director Starter Pack” was also on Hill’s list, and naturally, in the pack was the healthy energy drink Hill loves so much. The Celsius is accompanied by a pack of his turquoise American Spirits and a lighter. Although the talented star knows he should try to quit, he adamantly is “just keeping it real.” When questioned if he has tried vaping, Hill revealed he is not very fond of vapes and actually calls them “mouth fedoras.” 

A must-have bucket hat, incense, and some essential speakers for music were also included in the “Director Starter Pack.” According to Hill, it’s all about creating a vibe. To top it off, just like everyone else, Hill is just trying to stay hydrated and does so with his highly-decorated Hydro Flask. A ring, a wetsuit, and his favorite argan oil mask were just a few of the other necessities Hill spoke about in the entertaining episode.
