Zach Galifianakis

Clearly, Zach Galifianakis prefers to remain at sea level.

While the actor had no problem hitting the beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier this week with his Hangover Part III costars, the 43-year-old funnyman opted to pass on attending the film's press conference.

You see, the media event was held at Morro da Urca near Sugarloaf Mountain and apparently Galifianakis had a problem with going that that far up—220 meters to be exact.

"Zach is afraid of heights, and called into the press conference to let participants know, and made a few jokes," Gossip Cop quotes a rep for the film as saying.

Hey, if nothing else, it just gave the guy more time to work on that tan at the beach, right?
