Poor Jonah Hill. He was trying to romance a date when a fan butted in and ruined everything.

Here's one way to put the kibosh on a budding love affair: Jonah Hill was having dinner at New York's Joe's Shanghai with a hot mama when a fan butted in and spoiled all his moves.

A man at the next table noticed the star and leaned over for a discussion, reports the New York Post.

He told Jonah: "I buried my dad today and I just want to say you're gonna be one of the greats," the Post reports.

Um, HUH?

These two thoughts need a transition between them, right?

Poor flummoxed Hill replied, "Well, that's horrible."

"The guy just goes, 'No, it's fine, it's just great to meet you," the Post quotes a spy.

He then turned his back as Hill "repeated his condolences."

Aw, man! Talk about a buzzkill! Sorry about your dad, fella, but wow.

Hill must have been particularly bummed about the encounter, because, the spy told the Post, he was trying "really hard to woo" his mystery brunette.

Hill was spotted leaving a Tribeca gym where he'd worked out with his personal trainer on April 1. Perez Hilton said he looked "exhausted" and like he "could barely walk." You go, Jonah Hill.

Hill's last high-profile project, buddy/alien movie The Watch, floundered at the box office, but his next big project, This Is the End, is getting some attention. It has an interesting setup: A group of friends, including a whole bunch of celebrities like Emma Watson, Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Jonah Hill, are at a party at James Franco's house when the apocalypse happens.
