Soccer fan Stephen Graham failed in his attempts to convert Gangs of New York co-star Leonardo Dicaprio into a Liverpool supporter - because the Hollywood star couldn't wait for them to score.
The Brit gifted his one-time movie star pal with a Liverpool shirt and DiCaprio agreed to watch a game with him.
Graham recalls, "He only managed the first half. 'So let me get this straight,' he said. 'It's halfway through the match and there's still no score?'"
Graham always tries to convert Hollywood's leading men to his favourite team on film sets - and his love of soccer has impressed his directors.
He explains, "When I was filming Public Enemies, I had a five-hour drive back to Liverpool and was resigned to missing the Champions League semi-final.
"I moaned a bit and the director Michael Mann said, 'Why don't you take my jet?' So I did."
