samAvatar star Sam Worthington suffered an embarrassing style disaster on the set of his new film Clash of the Titans after fake tan products turned him green.

The 33-year-old actor plays hero Perseus in the big budget remake of the cult 1981 film, which is based on Greek mythology, Contactmusic reported.

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.

"That was horrible (fake tanning). That was the hardest part of it. I'm a pale Australian, which is an oxymoron in itself," Worthington said.

"I did try to get tanned and then I peeled like Ralph Fiennes in The English Patient, so I loofah'd (scrubbed) it off and it went green," the actor said.
