Actor JONATHAN RYHS-MEYERS claims his OCTANE co-star Bijou Phillips gave him a black eye because he didn't find her attractive.

The BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM star, who appears alongside Phillips in the thriller, was faced with a violent Phillips when he spurned the feisty star's advances.

He says, "She gave me a black eye the night before I left. (It was) because I didn't fancy her.

"She's a total little minx. And I want you to print that - that I didn't fancy her and that's why she gave me a black eye. She's a bit volatile, our young Bijou, but incredibly talented an extraordinary girl."
