Joe Jonas Pranks Hailee Steinfeld on the Radio

Joe Jonas, 26, pranked the 19-year-old Pitch Perfect 2 actress and pop singer during her interview with Australian radio show Smallzy's Surgery on Nova 96.9 FM Tuesday, three days before April Fools' Day.

Joe, whose band DNCE is featured in her new song and music video "Rock Bottom," introduced himself to her as "Harry" and imitated an British accent while asking her questions over the phone. His first involved a rather creepy request.

"My first question is, it's kind of weird, but can you send me some of your toenail clippings in the mail?" he asked.

"Is this for real?" she asked incredulously.

He also asked, "What was it like working with DNCE and that Joe Jonas?"

"It was really great," Steinfeld said. "I had a wonderful time collaborating with them. I love Joe and the band. Yeah."

Seemingly sensing something is up, she continued to say, "I think they took a lot away from it, actually. You know, Joe sings the whole second verse, which means I'm not singing it, so that kinda sucks, but whatever."

Steinfeld also said that when the "Jonas boys," aka Joe and his fellow former Jonas Brothers members, walk into a room, "it's like no one else exists."

"It's pretty terrible," she said.

Last year on April Fool's Day, Joe posted on his Twitter page an ultrasound photo of a baby, which shows up on the first page of a Google Images search, saying, "So happy to announce Hailee Steinfeld and I are expecting our first."

He later told Gossip Girl, "I'm very comfortable just being an uncle right now," referring to brother Kevin Jonas and wife Danielle Jonas' daughter Alena Jonas, who is now 2.

"We kind of messed with people [on] April Fools, but forgot to tell people it was a joke," he added. "Oops."
