The funnyman, who stars in Judd Apatow's latest project This Is 40, admits he got into the industry because he just wanted attention.

"I didn't have that thing where I saw Pippin at the age of five and thought, 'That's what I want to do'. I wasn't that kind of actor," The 40 Year Old Virgin actor said.

"I had a sister born two-and-half years after I was.

"I realised I wasn't the only one any more but I could do a little dance or something to get the attention back on myself.

"I'd get approval and have people telling me I'm worthwhile. I think that maybe the genesis of it."

:: This Is 40 is in cinemas now.
