Jason Segel was embarrassed to get naked in front of the crew when he filmed his new comedy movie 'Sex Tape', in which he stars with Cameron Diaz.

Jason Segel was embarrassed when he had to strip off naked for his role in 'Sex Tape'.

The 34-year-old actor stars alongside Cameron Diaz in the comedy movie about a married couple, Jay and Annie, who make an X-rated home movie to spice up their love life only to be left stunned when it leaks online.

Jason admits he wasn't entirely comfortable de-robing in front of the male crew for several scenes.

Speaking on 'The David Letterman Show', he said: "It's the worst part of the whole thing. It's the other men in the room - because you can't come out there naked so they make you stuff yourself into a pantyhose-looking thing.

"So I look like ['Sesame Street' character] Mr. Snuffleupagus. You can see other grown men shaking their heads in shame and pity, eating sandwiches. There's nothing sexy about it; there's a lot of that."

Before shooting started, Jason got himself into top shape so audiences could believe his character would be married to Hollywood sex symbol Cameron.

He explained: "I had to lose a bunch of weight because I'm naked in a lot of the movie. Cameron is incredibly physically attractive.

"I didn't want the audience to look at a poster of the movie and think, 'I think they're not having sex because he's a fat ass!' "

Happily married Annie (Diaz) and Jay (Segel) try to spice up their sex life by recording it on his iPad, but an accidental sync sends the film to several other devices; charmless slapstick ensues, with an interesting premise spoiled by a fumbled and decidedly old-fashioned treatment.
