Last weekend Jonah Hill was caught on video calling a paparazzo a "faggot" while he was walking in Los Angeles with a friend. He prefaced the homophobic slur with: "Suck my dick."

Hill apologized on the Howard Stern Show after the video hit the internet, saying, "I'm upset because from the day I was born I was publicly a gay rights activist." And last night he gave an emotional (Oscar worthy, even) apology on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, having to tell the cheering audience: "Unfortunately, this isn’t a joke." While in the paparazzo's video you only hear the photog saying things like "I like the shorts though, bro. They are pretty sexy." In this apology Hill claims he was also attacking him and his family.

Delivered through a cracking voice, the 30-year-old says, "I didn’t mean this in the sense of the word, I didn’t mean it in a homophobic way. I think that doesn’t matter, how you mean things doesn’t matter, words have weight and meaning. My heart’s broken and I am genuinely and deeply sorry to anyone who has ever been affected by that term in their life."

Well, Alec Baldwin, that's how an apology is done.
