Zachary Levi has revealed he only worked in the same room as Tangled co-star Mandy Moore to record their duet.

The Chuck actor said the pair thought they would work together to record their voiceovers for the new Disney animation, based on classic fairytale Rapunzel, but they ended up working alone.

"Probably the most challenging thing is you have to do it by yourself," he admitted at the film's premiere in Hollywood. "Mandy and I both thought we'd at least have a little dialogue together and we didn't do any of it together."

Zachary went on: "We did the song but we didn't do any recording sessions together for the dialogue. But it's awesome, it works!"

Mandy plays the long-haired princess, who has spent her entire life in a tower. When she falls in love with a passing bandit called Flynn - played by Levi - she must venture into the outside world for the first time to find him.

"He's not your archetypical Disney prince but that's what's so great to me, I feel like both Rapunzel and Flynn are not what you expect from a Disney fairytale movie," Zachary insisted.

"I've been calling it a kind of animated, family-friendly Romancing The Stone. It's these two people at opposite ends of the spectrum meeting each other, having this bond and changing each other along the way."
