Did Jonah Hill and Russell Brand get along?
The pair starred together in the comedy movie ‘Get Him to the Greek’ and became great friends on set.
Russell and Jonah shared a kiss on screen in the movie and even locked lips at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards when a ‘Kiss Cam’ panned onto the comedians as they sat watching the ceremony.
Jonah – who shot to fame in ‘Knocked Up’ and ‘Superbad’ – admitted afterward he and the British lothario decided to kiss as a spontaneous joke.
