Jonah Hill wasn’t just featured at the wedding of Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo as a celebrity guest – he was the man running the show! That’s right – Jonah Hill was the man chosen to officiate the wedding ceremony Saturday night in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
As an actor, Jonah has enjoying playing a number of different roles and characters over the years. Mostly, they have been comedic roles – such as his work in movies like Superbad, Knocked Up and 22 Jump Street. However, he also has been nominated for an Oscar twice for his dramatic roles in Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street. Therefore, Adam Levine knew that he could provide the perfect mix of hysterical comedy and emotionally-stirring drama when performing his duties as the wedding officiant.
According to what one source told E! News, Jonah Hill did not disappoint:
Jonah was hysterical. He was telling so many jokes, but then in the middle would be so sweet and sincere. He also talked about how sweet Behati is and how perfect they are for one another. He set up the joke perfectly. His timing was amazing. Everyone was giggling.
Before Saturday, many people didn’t even know that Adam Levine and Jonah Hill were friends in the first place. They have actually been friends for many years. Jonah Hill’s older brother, Jordan Feldstein, is Adam’s childhood friend and music manager for well over a decade now.
In an interview with E! Online, Jonah Hill said that their fathers met when they were in junior high in the principal’s office and remained friends for years. Growing up, Jonah and Adam basically lived at each other’s houses. When asked if their relationship changed at all after Adam Levine got signed to a record label and eventually became famous, Jonah Hill was quick to respond honestly that Adam did not change a single bit.
He’s so generous and nice to people…He’s not different now. He’s an actual guy…That is a guy who is exactly who he ever was in a great way. And actually, I know a lot of famous people and he’s one that has not changed.
Jonah Hill was not the only highlight of this beautiful wedding ceremony. One of the Maroon 5 guitarists played for Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo as they walked down the aisle together. Most of the bridesmaids were Victoria Secret models and wore white dresses while the groomsmen wore black trousers with a black print Hawaiian shirt. Stevie Nicks and Adam Levine even got a chance to perform together on stage during the reception with everyone in attendance, including Jonah Hill, enjoying the memorable occasion.
Perhaps whenever Jonah Hill decides to tie the knot himself, Adam Levine will be right there to return the favor to his longtime friend.
