Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds said he "wept like a little girl" when he saw his superhero costume for the first time.

The Canadian actor plays the masked superhero based on the Marvel comic of the same name in his latest film.

Appearing on the Graham Norton show, Reynolds said the film took 11 years to get off the ground and was "the best and worst relationship" he has ever had.

Ultimately it was thanks to fans that the film got made after a teaser was leaked online, he explained.

"We even made a taster but that sat on the shelf for four years until someone leaked it on the web, and then within 24 hours it got the green light," he said.

"I tried to make it happen for all that time but the fans got it made."

Hollywood actor Will Smith, promoting his new movie Concussion, revealed that he has been working on new music.

The Summertime singer said: " I've been working on something - and this time I'm not lying.

"We've recorded about 25 songs and have four or five I actually like. Jeff (DJ Jazzy Jeff) and I will be back here (in the UK) this summer to do shows - real shows."

Smith, who was known as The Fresh Prince, received the first-ever Grammy award for best rap performance in 1989 alongside DJ Jazzy Jeff for their hit song Parents Just Don't Understand.

Dad's Army actress Catherine Zeta-Jones also joined the line-up on Norton's BBC One show.

The Welsh Oscar-winner spoke of her fondness for playing golf and revealed she and husband Michael Douglas have a bet when they play together that "if he ducks a shot he has to drop his pants".

"It's not just my husband, it's any man I play," she said.

"There has been an issue with paparazzi so I make him go into the bushes. A deal is a deal."

:: The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC One on January 29 at 10.35pm.
