Jonah Hill - Jonah Hill 'Always A Student'

Jonah Hill only works with people he can learn from.

The 27-year-old actor is best known for his comedic roles in movies such as 'Superbad' and 'Knocked Up', but admits his recent turn on baseball movie 'Moneyball' with Brad Pitt helped him develop a side to his craft he does not usually tap into.

He said: "I think I always feel like a student. I always work with people I admire or else I don't go to work. To me, it's about learning from people. The best advice I ever got was "Shut up and listen."

"This was obviously the most different. Drama, I had only done one other one, this movie "Cyrus," and for me, those were two experiences, because I had done so many comedies, where I learned something totally different."

Jonah particularly enjoyed getting to know Brad on the movie, and believes they had a chemistry off-set which permeated into the film.

He added to MTV News: "I think he and I are really close in the movie. The movie is really the two of us playing off of each other a majority of the time, so if that chemistry wasn't there between us, I think the movie would have completely failed.

"So I think we both knew that going in, and I think we both happened to like each other a lot."
