Ray Winstone doesn't give his daughters advice on their acting careers

Ray Winstone has said he never gives his children advice on making it in the acting world.

Two of the Nil By Mouth and Sexy Beast star's daughters, Lois and Jaime, are actresses.

But asked whether he ever offered them words of wisdom, Ray said: "No, I wouldn't dare! I always say to them, 'What can I tell you that you don't already know?'."

The Noah star, who recently appeared in a big-screen version of The Sweeney and in thriller Ashes, added: "I'm there for them if they want me, but they kind of know more than me anyway.

"My eldest girl is a singer and she loves doing that, and every now and then she's lucky enough to get a role. Jaime is cracking on doing what she does, so if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

:: The Sweeney is out now on Blu-ray and DVD. Ashes is out now on DVD.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
