Academy Award nominee Jonah Hill recently visited The Graham Norton Show and recounted a mid-air flirtation gone terribly awry.

The story begins on a high note, with the then-teenage Wolf of Wall Street nominee on a plane, serendipitously seated next to a lovely girl of approximately the same age. The actor struck up a conversation with his alluring co-passenger, and to his delight, a mutual flirtation ensued. However, the certainty that this beautiful stranger would one day become his future wife was unwittingly interrupted when Hill excused himself to use the restroom.

After waiting 7 minutes for an occupied airplane lavatory, the actor stepped into the bathroom and was hit with a stench “like someone passed away.” Unfortunately, things only got worse for the self-proclaimed romantic from there.

Skip ahead to the two-minute mark to find out the mortifying conclusion to Hill’s mile-high romance-gone-wrong tale.
