Actor Seth Green is urging his fellow celebrities to hang out with him if they want to escape scandalous headlines - because the tabloids always ignore him.

The 30-year-old, who has appeared in hits including the Austin Powers franchise and The Italian Job, claims he's consistently overlooked by the paparazzi, while his high-profile colleagues endure relentless coverage.

Green says, "Somehow I'm bullet proof - nobody seems to care about me. I've been in so many funny situations with actors or musicians. And then I'll read a story in the papers about something I was involved in, and I'm not mentioned.

"It's this hilariously miraculous thing. I want to tell people who are in trouble or who are getting hunted by the press, 'Hang out with me. You'll be fine!'"
