Jonah Hill attends the premiere of “The Wolf of Wall Street” at the Ziegfeld Theatre on Tuesday, Dec. 17, 2013, in New York.

One fan bumped into Jonah Hill and all he got was this lousy business card.

The “22 Jump Street” star has reportedly taken to refusing autographs on the street, instead handing out a business card that reads “I just met Jonah Hill. It was a total letdown,” according to Naughty Gossip.

“Jonah actually had these printed up and always is carrying a bunch of them in his pocket. He thinks he is so clever and brilliant,” a source told the site.

“Who goes to all the trouble? It would be easier to just sign something or take a quick picture. He needs to chill out. He thinks he is very important.”

Hill, 31, has had run-ins with demanding strangers in the past — most notoriously heaving a homophobic slur at a paparazzo, and subsequently embarking on an apology tour, in June 2014.

The “22 Jump Street” star has reportedly taken to refusing autographs on the street, instead handing out these business cards.

“I think I am pretty good at making movies, but I am not good at being a famous person,” he told radio host Howard Stern.

The actor’s reported method of bypassing fan interactions echoes that of comedy great Steve Martin, who famously distributed a similar card to autograph-seekers during the 1980s.

“This certifies that you have had a personal encounter with me and that you found me warm, polite, intelligent and funny,” read the tongue-in-cheek business cards, which came along with his signature.

But “The Jerk” star abandoned the stunt after noticing fans’ disappointment.

“I realized that when people ask for an autograph, what they really kind of want is a little encounter; to find out what you’re really like in 30 seconds,” he told the Houston Chronicle in 2011.

In a similar vein, “Back to the Future” star Tom Wilson, who played villain Biff Tannen, reportedly hands out a time-saving postcard that answers frequently asked questions about Michael J. Fox, the DeLorean and the film franchise’s lasting legacy.

“You can contact me at www.tomwilsonusa.com,” the note ends. “Thank you and God bless you.”
