Zach Galifianakis doesn't see himself becoming a "sex symbol", although he would like to play a romantic lead role - but not anytime soon.
When was asked if he saw himself becoming a sex symbol he said: "Ha! No, I don't think that's ever going to happen. I don't think there's a big market for bear erotica! You know how a lot of actors end up fat and bearded? I'm going the reverse route. I'm going to lose the beard and lose a bunch of weight. Then maybe, hopefully, I can be considered for the romantic lead."
The actor also talked about his first ever sex scene for the movie It's a Funny Kind of Story.
"It was embarrassing, I've had to do a few kissing scenes, and I've had to do a few scenes where I was bottomless but this was just embarrassing. That's what people don't realize. It's just one giant embarrassment for a good paycheck!" he said.
