Alongside his fellow “22 Jump Street” co-star Channing Tatum, presenter Jonah Hill graced the Golden Globes stage in character as the bear who viciously mauled Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Revenant.”

“I’ve notoriously done zero press for the film,” Hill, as the bear, revealed. “I’m a Daniel Day or Tom Hardy type of actor who doesn’t like my face out there very much.”

The sound for TV viewers cut out several times as Hill delivered at least two f-bombs during his speech.

Before presenting the best supporting actress award, Hill thanked DiCaprio and “The Revenant” director Alejandro G. Inarritu for casting him, “A two year old bear from the Sierra mountains,” in the film.

Before exiting, Hill presented the supporting actress in a movie Golden Globe to Kate Winslet and shared that he may have to go after some studio execs later in the evening.

“The Revenant’s” brutal bear attack scene generated some interesting buzz prior to the film’s December 2015 release when a report arose that DiCaprio was raped by the bear in the film, but Fox was quick to deny the rumor.

“The Revenant” received nominations for four Golden Globes categories including best motion picture (drama), best director, best actor and best original score.
