Jonah Hill defends 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' which features drug addiction, infidelity and crime, claiming immoral behaviour has a "bad ending"

Jonah Hill says 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' shows immoral behaviour has a "bad ending".

The 30-year-old actor plays Donnie Azoff - who works with stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) who develops a cocaine addiction, cheats on his wife and commits fraud - and was keen to defend the message which Martin Scorsese's latest film attempts to tackle.

Talking during a brunch with, he said: "I personally take away the message from the film that this behaviour, this lifestyle, leads to a very bad ending.

"I think the movie is not glorifying this behaviour, it is showing that it leads to bad places whether their judicial punishment doesn't reflect that is one thing. Where your life ends up, who you are as a person, is another."

Hill isn't sure how he'll be able to top the experience he had while making 'The Wolf Of Wall Street'and claims working with 71-year-old filmaker Scorsese was the "greatest experience of my life".

He previously said: "I wrote him a note when we wrapped the film and exchanged gifts, I wrote him a note about how grateful I was to be included in the movie and I said, 'Well, the rest of my life is just egg noodles and ketchup,' which is [the line] at the end of 'GoodFellas'.

"Like, how do you compare any other work experience to working with Martin Scorsese for six months? It was just the greatest experience of my life."
