Roscommon actor Chris O'Dowd has revealed that becoming an unlikely sex symbol after his turn in ‘Bridesmaids' completely unnerved him and hastened his marriage to Dawn Porter.

He says he was surprised at first and found it fun.

“While it's nothing that I thought would ever be part of my oeuvre, I will say that it's kind of fun," he told the Express.

"As soon as I saw that I was getting any sort of response like that after 'Bridesmaids', I found the prospect so terrifying that I was married within the year."

However he says women who saw him on the HBO show ‘Girls,’ where he plays a surly and seedy venture capitalist, have a different reaction.

He told People magazine: "If they are 'Bridesmaids' fans, women try to set me up with their sister.

"I know they are 'Girls' fans if they call me a douche and walk away."
