Vinnie Jones will be horsing around
Vinnie Jones will be mounting a horse in his next movie role.
The Hollywood hardman and former footballer is keeping his upcoming big screen project top secret, but has let slip that he has been given riding lessons for the part.
Vinnie told The Sun: "My horse-riding can definitely improve - the last time I was on one was in Mongolia, I lived with a Mongolian family for two weeks for research on this film role."
Meanwhile, Vinnie has also revealed he and fellow British movie star Jason Statham are planning to open an English-style pub in America.
They follow in the footsteps of director Guy Richie, who is planning to open another branch of his Mayfair pub The Punchbowl across the Atlantic.
Vinnie said: "Me and Jay have been talking about it for about a year.
"We were thinking The Snatch Bar or something like that down in Santa Monica. We're going to do it, it's just a question of us finding the time.
"Jay has been working so much and so have I. That and golf. People say, 'What do you mean you've been working?' I'm working on my handicap.
"The pubs will happen. We had a great spot right opposite the pier in Santa Monica. They just wanted too much rent. Me and Jay went to look at it and we had three other investors, all Brits."
