John C Reilly has admitted he regrets saying he looked like Shrek.

The Stepbrothers actor is compared to the cartoon ogre in his latest movie, Cyrus, and although he suggested the line himself he was mortified that it made the cut.

Reilly - who stars in the comedy alongside Marisa Tomei and Jonah Hill - laughed: "Compared to Marisa, I do look like Shrek!"

He went on: "I don't know why I said that. I almost immediately regretted it. Not only was it in the movie, it's in the trailer and virtually every person I speak to brings it up."

But the Magnolia actor added: "Whatever... Shrek's a nice enough guy and he gets the girl too."

Reilly, 45, plays a divorced loner in Cyrus, which was directed by Mark and Jay Duplass.

:: Cyrus is in cinemas now.
