Hollywood star Zach Braff was left confused during a recent promotional trip to Britain, when a man told him his sexy Garden State co-star NATALIE PORTMAN is "fit".

Braff, best known as the star of medical TV show SCRUBS, thought he was referring to Portman's physical stamina, not realising "fit" is British slang for beautiful.

Braff says, "This one guy just told me she was fit. That's not an expression we have in the States - fit means in shape.

"So I was like, 'What do you mean she's fit? Did she do press-ups in front of you?' I'm going to take that expression back to LA. I'm claiming it."
