Another day, and another really funny Zach Galifianakis interview to share with you. In this one, he’s talking to Prairie Miller from the Long Island Press, and before they get to discussing Zach’s role in Focus Features’ forthcoming comedy It’s Kind of a Funny Story, the conversation turns to him becoming a Hollywood sex symbol.

Zach Galifianakis on Being A Sex Symbol

Here’s the way that part of their chat played out:

Q: You’ve been getting into some romantic situations on screen lately, however strange they may be. Do you see yourself becoming a sex symbol down the road somewhere?

ZG: Ha! No, I don’t think that’s ever going to happen. Wait a minute, what romantic things have I been doing? You must be getting me confused with Denzel Washington! But no, I don’t think there’s a big market for bear erotica! You know how a lot of actors end up fat and bearded? I’m going the reverse route. I’m going to lose the beard and lose a bunch of weight. Then maybe, hopefully, I can be considered for the romantic lead. But those parts are so boring. That kind of stuff just doesn’t interest me. The poor actors are always so bland. I don’t think I have to worry about it!
