You know those days when you’re taking a nice, leisurely walk in a New York City park, and suddenly you witness a woman giving birth to a baby right next to you? What? You mean you haven’t had one of those days? Well Jonah Hill did, and his response was a little different than mine would’ve been.
First of all, how did this even happen? A public park is pretty far down on my list of ‘Most Desirable Places to Give Birth’, right after ‘in the bed of a tow truck’ and ‘no place at all, please’. But I’m guessing the woman in question went into labor unexpectedly and didn’t have time to get to a hospital before the baby arrived. I don’t know, I don’t get it.
But regardless, Jonah was standing around watching it happen, which is pretty odd, before the last time I checked, watching a woman give birth in a park essentially amounts to staring at a strange woman’s vagina while she pushes a small human out of it. Right? But instead of, I don’t know, giving her some privacy, Jonah actually took a picture with his cell phone. As he reports on his own Twitter:
Craziest thing I’ve ever seen. A woman have birth next to me in a park. I took a picture of the placenta and TMZ caught me. Embarrassing.
I hope to god he’s kidding, because that is seriously invasive and gross. Going back to how I want things to go when and if I ever give birth, on the list of ‘Celebrities I’d Want To Have A Picture of My Placenta’, Jonah Hill is pretty close to last, right before Russell Brand and Mitt Romney .
You’re in fine company, Jonah. Keep on living that dream.
