Jonah Hill recently appeared on GQ’s Instagram Live show, The Drop-In, and during the interview, he blamed Amazon for the failure of one of his favorite roles.

"It's the best acting I have done or will ever do, but no one saw it because Amazon completely f***ed it up," he explained, referring to his role in the Gus Van Sant-directed 2018 film Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot. 

In the film, Hill starred as a gay, disco-loving, trust-fund kid named Donnie Greene. He feels people completely missed his moment, however, due to Amazon Studios pushing the movie's theatrical release date to July after it premiered in January. Momentum was lost and the movie flopped at the box office, earning only $4.2 million on a $3.5 million budget.

Hill wasn't simply giving himself an unwarranted pat on the back, though — critics have also praised his performance. In Rolling Stone's review, film critic Peter Travers implied it might earn Hill his third Oscar nomination. Meanwhile, The New York Times described his performance as "revelatory."

The film is currently available on Amazon Prime. Watch the trailer below.
