Owen Wilson has joked that Vince Vaughn tried to avoid him on the set of their new film The Internship.

The Wedding Crashers stars have reunited on screen for the first time since 2005, where they play recently fired salesmen who seek to reinvent themselves by winning internships at Google.

"A lot of times I'd go up to talk to Vince and I'd want to kind of catch up and shoot the breeze, and maybe crack some jokes, and he was always just buried in his computer," Owen said.

"And then one time I noticed that it wasn't turned on, it was just when I was coming up. So I didn't know what to make of that," added the 44-year-old.

Vince joked: "It's called I'm looking for some downtime, I don't need to hear the same story again, you know what I mean?

"That's the thing with Owen that I love is his stories will start always in different ways, but the endings are consistent, which is: That's why I win. So no matter where the stories start, I never get nervous because the last page is always: That's why I win."

No longer womanising Wedding Crashers, the comedic pair have grown up into doting dads who brought their kids to work.

"It did kind of give you a good feeling just seeing the kids running around," Owen recalled.

The Internship opens in the UK on July 3.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

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
