Jonah Hill Did So Much Fake Coke in 'Wolf' He Had to be Hospitalized

Even fake drugs can have real consequences!

Jonah Hill appeared on this week's Any Given WednesdayWith Bill Simmons, where the War Dogs star opened up about his time filming the 2013 movie, Wolf of Wall Street -- specifically, the toll all the fake drugs he had to take had on his system.

"I had to be hospitalized," Hill, 32, revealed. "If you ingest that much matter into your lungs you'll get very sick, and we were literally doing fake coke for seven months, every day."

But even though it involved a trip to the ER, Hill admits the experience wasn't all bad.

"I never had more vitamin D in my entire life," he said, joking, "I could have lifted a car over my f**king head!"
