Jonah Hill says fame hasn't changed Adam Levine.

The Wolf of Wall Street actor (30) grew up with the Maroon 5 frontman (35) in Los Angeles and admits he "always looked up to" the Moves Like Jagger hitmaker. He said: "He's the kind of guy that you never would be [jealous] cause he's not a d**k. He's not a d**k about it, he's so generous and nice to people. He's not different now. He's an actual guy...That is a guy who is exactly who he ever was in a great way. And actually, I know a lot of famous people and he's one that has not changed a lid." Asked how the duo first met, Jonah told Howard Stern on his radio show: "Our dads met in the principal's office in junior high. We were in carpool; we lived at each other's houses."

Jonah also revealed that Adam "had bad acne when he was growing up," and confirmed the singer, who is engaged to 25-year-old model Behati Prinsloo, initially struggled to find a date because he was a "nerdy."

He said: "I always looked up to him, so I don't think I would have had the proper perspective to judge that. I think maybe towards the end because their band got signed when they were seniors in high school and so how could you not be doing well with ladies when you're a guy in a band?"

Jonah's older half-brother, Jordan Feldstein, manages The Voice USA star and his band.
