Oscar nominated actor, Jonah Hill, revealed in an interview on Tuesday that he was only paid $60,000 for his role in “Wolf of Wall Street”. One may think that $60,000 is a lot of money. The money was for seven months of work and that is the total before taxes and commissions.

The $60,000 was SAG (Screen Actors Guild) minimum. According to Huffington Post, Hill said "They gave me the lowest amount of money possible, that was their offer," he said, "And I said, 'I will sign the paper tonight. Fax me the papers tonight. I want to sign them tonight before they change their mind' ... I said, 'I wanna sign them before I go to sleep tonight so they legally can't change their mind.'"

Leonardo DiCaprio was paid a reported $10 million dollars for his role in the film, plus a producer’s salary. The movie which took seven months to film has several Oscar nominations. Hill went on to say that he would have done anything to play the role and work with DiCaprio.
