Hoping to make his skin darker with tan product for his role in new movie 'Clash of the Titans', Sam Worthington was left embarrassed as he found himself turned green after scrubbing it off.

suffered an embarrassing style disaster on the set of the new "" film - fake tan products turned him green. The "" actor plays hero Perseus in the big budget remake of the cult 1981 film, which is based on Greek mythology.

Producers wanted the pale-skinned star to appear darker and lathered him in fake tan for the duration of filming - but the end result left Worthington cringing. He tells Britain's Live From Studio Five, "That was horrible (fake tanning). That was the hardest part of it."

"I'm a pale Australian, which is an oxymoron in itself. I did try to get tanned and then I peeled like in 'The English Patient', so I loofah'd (scrubbed) it off - and it went green!"
