Sam Worthington Australian actor Sam Worthington has defended his recent weight gain, insisting his paunch is "healthy" and "human".

The Avatar star was photographed earlier this week on a beach in Hawaii sporting a fuller figure and the pictures were published with a headline containing the phrase "Clash of the Xmas puddings," a reference to his role in action movie Clash of the Titans.

However, Worthington is adamant he is proud of his bulging belly, as he "hates" working out at a gym and is happy to have normal body issues.

He tells News.com.au, "Clash of the Xmas puddings, that's good. I like it. I hate working out. I like the fact that I've got a paunch. It's good, I think it's healthy. Sometimes all these eight-packs and things you see in the movies, yeah that's all well and good, but I've seen Gerard Butler, he's got a paunch."

"He's not (in 2007 movie) 300 anymore and there's something kind of nice about it, human."
