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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Impulsive purchases will put you in a difficult financial position. It's important to exercise economic restraint. If you strongly desire to buy something, wait an entire day. The urge to splash out will probably diminish, saving you a significant sum. Money from an inheritance, dividend or royalty payment should be conserved. Having a nest egg will give you a greater measure of freedom. Independence is the best gift you can give yourself. Materialism won't bring you the happiness you seek.More
