Sam Worthington had "hair like Jennifer Aniston" when he was 16.

The Australian actor had dreadlocks in his late teenage years, and he admits it may have looked like the former 'Friends' star did when she was famed for her voluminous shoulder-length cut in the 90s.

Discussing his role in 'Clash of the Titans', Sam told Empire magazine: "Honestly, more was made about my f**king hair in this movie than anyone's in the whole world - apart from maybe Jennifer Aniston when she had that haircut in 'Friends' and the whole f**king world copied.

"In fact, I think I had that style too; dreadlocks in the style of Jennifer Aniston when I was 16 to 20."

Sam - currently starring in movie 'Man on a Ledge' - admits he is delighted to be reprising the role of Perseus in the follow-up 'Wrath of the Titans' because of the critical mauling the first film received.

He said: "I read a lot of reviews and everyone thought I looked like a f**king idiot. More was written about my hair than anything else."
