Hollywood veteran Robert Duvall was given acting tips from an unlikely source on the set of 2000 action movie GONE IN 60 SECONDS - acting novice Vinnie Jones.

Duvall, an ACADEMY AWARD winner and veteran of more than 80 films, was stunned by the former soccer star's enthusiasm and self-confidence.

Jones, in only his third acting role, appeared alongside Duvall, NICOLAS CAGE and Angelina Jolie in the heist thriller.

The 73-year-old star jokes, "Vinnie tried to direct everybody.

"I was like, 'Vinnie, I think I know what I'm doing.'"
