As the host of ‘Saturday Night Live’ on Jan. 25, Jonah was feeling like a big shot, until the real legend, Leo, came on stage to hilariously put him in his place. But don’t worry, they also managed to recreate an iconic scene from ‘Titanic.’ Sounds amazing, right? Watch it below!

As a two-time Academy Award nominee and a three-time host of Saturday Night LiveJonah Hill is a pretty big star. But still, when he stepped out to do his opening monologue on Jan. 25, all anyone wanted to know about was his Wolf of Wall Street co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. And when Jonah started bad-mouthing Leo, that’s when things got amazing.

“You wanna know the truth?” Jonah asked the audience, letting his ego take over:

The truth is Leo wasn’t even supposed to be in the movie. Here’s what happened: I call up Marty Scorsese. I say, “Marty, it’s JH. I’m ready to get in a room together.” He says, “Finally.” Then I say, “Should we get DiCaprio on board?” And Marty says, “I don’t know if he can handle it. Sure, he’s a movie star and he puts teenaged girls in the seats, but we need a real actor like you.”

Little did Jonah know that Leo was in the building! Walking on stage (to massive screams from those aforementioned teenaged girls), Leo confronted a flustered Jonah: “Hey buddy. I have a question: what the hell are you doing, man?”

What happened next was a hilarious acting job by Jonah, where he tried to cover his tracks before meekly bowing down to Leo and apologizing for trying to act cool.

Somehow though, that wasn’t even the best part. Because after admitting that he shouldn’t be a big shot, Jonah asked Leo if he’d calm his nerves by doing “the thing” they always did to prepare for Wolf of Wall Street scenes. And that’s when that iconic Celine Dion flute kicked in, Jonah spread his arms, and Leo nestled up behind him. Just like that, the best (but also the corniest) scene in Titanic was happening all over again.

“Am I flying, Jack!?” Jonah shouted. “Yes, Rose. Yes, you’re flying!”

Wow. Amazing. Can you believe that that was just the start of a show that also totally made fun of Justin Bieber? Watch it below and tell us what you think, HollywoodLifers!

Leonardo just gets better with age! Rob Pattinson is the next leo. Has leo ever hosted SNL? I know he is shy and doesn’t like to do appearances unless he has to.
