Zach Galifianakis: Being a celebrity is dumb

October 12, 2014 Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough, Birdman

Zach Galifianakis is so much like an ordinary fan than a star that he gets away with mocking Hollywood despite earning his livelihood there.

In the actor’s latest series of quips aimed at actors at The New York Film Festival, The Hangover star said, “Being a celebrity is shit. It's dumb. I'm not interested in it. I like to be an actor and that's it.”

When asked about blurring the lines for performances and reality for a film, he said, “The blurred lines are, I think, man-made. I think celebrity is a man-made thing. It's not innate in us. We have people telling us we should pay attention to these people for the wrong reasons - their personal lives and that stuff."

Galifianakis said the cast of his upcoming movie Birdman, which also includes Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan and Andrea Riseborough, held similar views. He even managed to draw ire of the crowd who were busy clicking photos by revealing his dislike for “picture taking.”

"I'm just being honest," Galifianakis said. "I would rather do my work and go home and watch Lifetime or something."
