Sure, Jonah Hill may have scored a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his role as Donnie Azoff in Wolf of Wall Street, but that doesn't mean he was paid the big bucks for it.

In a radio interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday, Hill revealed that he made a paltry $60,000 for his seven-month shoot in the Martin Scorcese flick, according to N.Y. Daily News.

"I think SAG minimum is something like $60,000 before commissions and taxes," Jonah told Stern.

It may seem like a good chunk of money to the average joe, but compared to Leonardo DiCaprio's $10 million he scored for his role as corrupt Wall Streeter Jordan Belfort, that's a huge difference, reported IndieWire. In addition, although real-life Belfort (who was convicted) claims he didn't make any money off of the film, it's rumored he pocketed $1.066 million.

However, Hill has no regrets. He wanted to work with Scorcese so badly that he was willing to work for such low Hollywood-star wages. "I would sell my house and give him all my money to work for (Scorsese)," Hill said. "I would have done anything in the world. I would do it again in a second."

The film cost $100 million to make and has already made $170 million internationally since its release on Christmas day, according to New York Post.
