Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep made a pact not to get in shape for the making of It's Complicated.

The actor told E! live on the red carpet at this year's SAG Awards in Los Angeles: "Meryl and I both said to each other 'don't get in shape for this movie'!"

The 30 Rock star picked up Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series at this year's ceremony.

But referring to his nude movie scenes in the new romantic comedy, he admitted he hadn't embarked on a rigorous training regime.

"To me there was no point in that, the guy was a middle-aged guy. There's another movie I want to do where I want to be running 20 miles a week, but that wasn't this movie," he explained.

Alex confessed that taking his clothes off had felt like an odd day at the office.

"You read the script and it's got some crazy description of the scene. I wanted the guy to look heavily spray-tanned and it was really a bizarre experience, I must say," he laughed.
