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.
