Zach Galifianakis has confessed his hatred of "bizarre" red carpets.

The actor, who stars as Humpty Dumpty in new animation Puss In Boots, admitted that unlike many other celebrities, he isn't comfortable in the spotlight.

"I can't stand it, I hate it," he laughed. "I don't want to complain, but it's foreign to men, it's man-made, so it's really bizarre, how people are screaming."

And despite appearing in the forthcoming Muppets movie as well as Puss In Boots, the actor said he doesn't "mix" with children.

"Me and children don't mix very well, I mean look at those punks," he quipped.

But the 42-year-old admitted that appearing in family movies did have one perk.

"I like the children's premieres, because it's a lot of good energy. It's not a lot of cynical jerks like myself," he said.

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
