Kevin Bacon has revealed his surprise at the Footloose remake, saying it makes him feel old.

The US actor's career was launched after he danced his way through the 1984 musical, which is being remade with up-and-coming actor Kenny Wormald stepping into his shoes.

"To realise that you're old enough to have a movie that you were in and it's time to remake it, it's a little bit of a shock, I have to say. It's not something that ever even occurred to me - that I would be alive when they would be remaking a picture of mine," he told Daybreak.

Kevin - who next stars in X-Men: First Class with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender - is excited to see how it would work, however, adding: "But cool, let's see how it is. I'm looking forward to it."

Aquarius:

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
