An extremely “upset” and audibly shaken Jonah Hill apologized for his use of a homophobic slur over the weekend during an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday.

Calling what he said “disgusting” and inexcusable, the 22 Jump Street star explained that the paparazzi in the footage had been following him and saying hurtful things about his loved ones — and that Hill finally snapped (see video here).

“I played into what he wanted and lost my cool, and in that moment, I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people,” explained the actor, who’s “been a gay rights activist” and is about to attend his friend’s same-sex wedding.

He told Stern, “I’m not at all defending my choice of words, but I am happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say.”

“It would break my heart to think that anyone would think… that I would be against anyone for their sexuality,” said the star.
