Jonah Hill lived rent-free while shooting the big screen adaptation of 21 Jump Street in New Orleans, Louisiana - Brad Pitt offered up his home to the funnyman after starring together in Moneyball.

Hill began filming the upcoming movie adaptation of the hit 1980s TV show shortly after completing baseball film Moneyball with Pitt, and the Hollywood superstar didn't hesitate to hand over the keys to his empty New Orleans pad to his new pal.

The Superbad actor tells US comedian Jon Stewart, "Brad is the coolest guy. It sucks because he's so handsome... You don't wanna like him so much!

"I was shooting (21 Jump Street) in New Orleans, and he let me live in his house. He said, 'Go live there!' I said, 'I'm there for three-and-a-half, four months', and he said, 'That's cool. Live at my house.' Like, he's the nicest guy."

But Hill admits he felt bad for tourists visiting New Orleans as they would get excited to catch a glimpse of Pitt every time his car pulled up to the property.

He says, "Every day I'd get picked up in a black SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) and dropped off. But people in New Orleans know it's Brad Pitt's house. It's literally on the (bus) tour.

"So, I would go home every day from work and there'd be a tour outside and they'd be freaking out, and then I'd get out of the car, and you could hear a collective audible sigh of annoyance when it wasn't Brad Pitt!"

Hill stars alongside Channing Tatum in the movie version of 21 Jump Street, the show which kick-started Johnny Depp's career. It is due for release in 2012.
