Brendan Fraser has revealed he doesn't weigh himself.

The comic actor had to pile on the pounds for his new comedy Furry Vengeance, in which he plays a real estate developer, but didn't keep track of his weight.

"I don't know the number of pounds I gained because, in my real life, I don't step on scales - I don't believe them, I'm like, 'You're a liar'," he told

Brendan didn't mind putting on the extra weight though.

"I needed a bigger butt on account of there was going be a lot of physical comedy - I get thrown around a lot in the movie," said the 41-year-old.

"Let's just face it, it's funny. Kids love it. Adults love it. They're like, 'Ha-ha, look! Brendan Fraser, the guy who was really buff in all those action movies, has gotten fat'."

:: Furry Vengeance will be released on May 7.
