Jonah Hill has reportedly cancelled all promotional appearances in France after being mocked on satirical chat show Le Grand Journal, claims BFMTV.

The Hollywood actor, happy to be the butt of jokes in many of his movies, found real-life mockery from French comedian Ornella Fleury a little hard to take.

Addressing Hill face to face on live television, Fleury unflinchingly recounted a sexual fantasy involving the 32-year-old's celebrity friends at the expense of the man himself.

The cutting exchange began with a not-so subtle dig at Hill's movie career, who stars in new film War Dogs.

"It's when I saw you get sodomised by a demon in This Is The End that I told myself THAT is the man of my dreams," began Fleury – immediately riling the actor.

"And you? I heard you get sodomised on a regular basis," responded Hill.

But undeterred Fleury continued: "Anyway, here's why I have a sexual fantasy with you Jonah – all I have to say is sexual fantasy and you guys laugh... guess I don't need to finish the joke...

"My sexual fantasy would be that we would meet up in a hotel room at night. We would chat, you'd make me laugh, you'd make me laugh A LOT, and then all of a sudden you'd bring your friends [Leo] DiCaprio and Brad Pitt... and then you would LEAVE," she concluded.

Cue an awkward silence around the room and slow, sarcastic thumbs up from Hill. The Wolf of Wall Street star then let his composure slip, snapping "I'm glad I came on here to be mocked by a local journalist," clearly unaware she was not a journalist but a comedian.

Perhaps Fleury was just trying to offer jokes a potential Hangover reboot?
