A new tabloid report alleges Josh Gad enjoys getting mistaken for Jonah Hill, but the entire story is nothing more than a fabrication. Gossip Cop can correct this bogus claim. We’re told it’s “made-up.”

Predictably, the allegation can be found in this week’s issue of the National Enquirer, which blares in a headline, “Josh Gad & Jonah Hill: Laugh-A-Minute Pals.” In the accompanying story, the supermarket tabloid contends the Frozen actor “laughs his butt off” when fans and other stars confuse him with “buddy and lookalike” Hill. In bizarrely unnatural language, a so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Josh chuckles about the mix-ups, even joking he gets movie parts Jonah’s nixed!”

The magazine’s questionable “insider” further purports, “But he’s getting nervous now that Jonah’s trimmed 40 pounds, looks like a matinee idol and is scoring flicks that’d never tolerate a ‘tubby.'” But Gossip Cop investigated, and a rep for Gad tells us the report is “made-up.” Contrary to the publication’s latest article, which fails to supply the reader with any specific details about the film roles Hill has allegedly turned down, the actor does not enjoy getting confused for Hill. It’s just yet another concoction.

Oddly, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has busted the often disproven outlet for publishing a story about one star getting confused for another. In August, we corrected the Enquirer when it wrongly claimed that a fan mistook Matthew Perry for Joe Scarborough. In that report, the magazine alleged Perry was “dumbstruck” when the fan confused him for the “Morning Joe” host. While there is a passing resemblance between the two men, the article was entirely untrue, and failed to provide any specifics about the supposed encounter between Perry and the female fan. Similarly to that tall tale, this latest one is equally phony.
