Jonah Hill 'Hated' 'Superbad' Co-Star Christopher Mintz-Plasse Initially, Says Seth Rogen
Superbad was released 15 years ago today on August 17, 2007. Feel old yet?

In honour of the occasion, Vanity Fair has published an oral — yes, oral — history with the help of the raunchy teen comedy's cast and crew. Needless to say, the publication's conversation with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Emma Stone, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Bill Hader and more produced at least a few nuggets of previously unknown information about the movie — including the fact that Hill hated his co-star Mintz-Plasse at first.

"Jonah immediately hated [Mintz-Plasse]," Rogen, who co-wrote and co-stars in the buddy comedy, remembered of the pair's dynamic during the audition process. "He was like, 'That was fucking with my rhythm. I couldn't perform with that guy.'"

The movie's executive producer (and recent yacht rock supergroup facilitatorJudd Apatow went on to describe the McLovin actor as "very caustic." Apparently, Mintz-Plasse "attacked Jonah and did improvs insulting Jonah," during his third callback for the film.

"Jonah said, 'I don't like that guy. I don't want him doing it,'" Apatow recalled. "And I said, 'That's exactly why we're hiring him. It couldn't be more perfect. The fact that it bothers you is exactly what we want.'"

And even Hill couldn't help but admit that he was right. "Chris was really, really amazing off the bat," the actor added. "And I think he was really annoying to me at that time."

Mintz-Plasse remembered showing up to the open casting call, "super stoked to be there." "It was my first movie, and I was nervous," he continued of the iconic role that would change his life seemingly overnight.

"I remember the weekend after [Superbad hit theatres], going to Chipotle," he said. "I got recognized, and a girl would climb over my friends to try and touch me. And I would run out of the Chipotle, and all of their friends would run after me." Chicka chicka yeah — guac is extra.

Hill has said that he's on board with getting the gang back together again to make Superbad 2 in about 40 years, while Apatow had once planned a rejected sequel that would follow Hill's Seth and Cera's Evan (but mostly the latter) to college.
