Funnyman Jason Sudeikis was left exasperated after comedy responses he and his fiancee Olivia Wilde made about their sex life appeared in print - as serious answers to silly questions.
The Horrible Bosses star is still learning what to say and what not to say in magazine interviews and a recent showdown with an Us Weekly reporter taught him never to be too flippant or funny when dealing with the media.
When asked about his fitness regime, he told the magazine, "The truth is, I'm not getting up an hour earlier and walking on a treadmill. I have the greatest workout partner in the world - and you don't need a gym membership for that kind of workout."
His remarks came just after Wilde joked that she and her man are like Kenyan marathon runners in the bedroom.
Asked to comment on the sex talk in a recent chat on Access Hollywood, Sudeikis got serious and said, "She (Wilde) was joking... I thought it was hilarious... We make jokes off the cuff and then those things get misrepresented and reprinted out of context."
