Mintz-Plasse fans go for headlock
Chris Mintz-Plasse doesn't always enjoy getting recognised - because he is often confused for his Superbad character.
The actor is about to make an even bigger name for himself as Chris D'Amico in Matthew Vaughn's controversial new film Kick-Ass.
Chris said it could be "tough" getting recognised because fans often try and put him in a "headlock" thinking they can relate to his on-screen role.
He said: "I get recognised quite a bit in LA and actually here (in London) I got recognised down at the hotel bar. Pretty much every time I go out I recognised.
"It's pretty tough sometimes. When people come up to me and they're sweet and they're like 'I love your movie' that's the best.
"But sometimes people come up to me and they put me in headlocks because they 'relate to my character' so they think they can relate to me.
"They give me nuggies and 'I'll buy you a shot man'. I'm like, 'no you're not'."
The comedy star was still in high school when he landed the role in Superbad that launched his career.
