Funnyman Jason Sudeikis was born without a sense of smell.

The Horrible Bosses star, who is engaged to actress Olivia Wilde, admits he never really noticed his inability to enjoy good and bad scents as a kid, but that all changed when he hit puberty.

The actor says, "People start complaining about the smell of your feet and you're like, 'I can't smell it!'"

And he still wasn't aware he was different when he hit his 20s and started touring with comedy troupe Second City: "I'd be around other 20 year olds and we would go by places in the Mid-West that smelled like c**p and I couldn't tell... I had no idea."

To prove the point, Sudeikis agreed to take part in an experiment during his appearance on U.S. show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday (07Aug13), during which he had to guess the identity of objects he was holding while blindfolded.

The actor used touch to identify jerky, a Twinkie cake bar, a water balloon and a giant Gummi Bear, but thought a stick of butter was chocolate. He insisted he couldn't smell any of the items.
