Terence Stamp has revealed he once stole some trousers from a costume department to wear on a blind date with Brigitte Bardot.

The Song For Marion star - famous for his roles in Billy Budd and original Superman movies - went on a date with the French starlet in the late 60s, but admitted they struggled to get over the language barrier.

Terence told ES magazine: "I had a blind date with Brigitte Bardot... and I put on these trousers: I'd nicked them from Far From The Madding Crowd. They're not like normal strides but I felt comfortable in them. It's the first time I realised that if you feel good, you look good.

"She was probably the most desirable woman I had ever seen but I can't say it went well because we didn't have a language in common."

The London-born actor - who earned an Oscar nomination for his debut film role in Billy Budd in 1962 - described himself as an "urban icon".

He said: "I feel I'm kind of an urban icon, that I've earned my place, because, you know, what the English love best is longevity. I will be 75 this July. I am five years away from being 80. That's ridiculous. But it's all still working, so I'm delighted."
