Irish stars Colin Farrell and Niall Horan join Graham Norton guests

Irish stars Colin Farrell and Niall Horan are among the guests on Friday's Graham Norton Show.

Farrell appears along with his co-star Nicole Kidman to talk about their new movie The Killing Of A Sacred Deer.

Meanwhile, Horan performs his new single Too Much To Ask live in the studio.

Also siting for a chat on the famous sofa are actors Bryan Cranston and Matt Lucas, as well as Hollywood legend Jane Fonda.

During their chat, the iconic actress revealed how competitive Katherine Hepburn was with her over their Oscars.

The duo starred together in On Golden Pond in 1981 alongside Fonda's father Henry, a role that netted Hepburn her third Academy Award.

She told Graham Norton: "Katherine was very prickly and told me outright that she didn't like me much.

"I did the film for him (Fonda) because he was dying but she taught me the most and I gained her respect for doing my own stunt.

"But then when I rang to congratulate her on receiving an Oscar for the film she said, 'You'll never catch me now.'

"She had won three Oscars and I had won two - she was so competitive."

Fonda also reflected on her 1968 film Barbarella, directed by her ex-husband Roger Vadim, joking: "I've burned all the films my husband made!

"He was directing the movie, our marriage was falling apart and it was not an easy movie to make.

"Years later when I had a sense of humour again, which took a while, I kind of enjoyed it. It was quite campy and fun."

The actress and activist will soon be turning 80, saying, "I never thought I would live this long, much less be working at my age. It's amazing," and has reunited with Robert Redford for a new Netflix film, 50 years after they starred in Barefoot In The Park.

She described that film and new project Our Souls At Night as "bookends to our careers," but said she has no plans to retire like Redford claims he will.

She told the show: "I'm not stopping," but jokingly added: "He says he is and he should because he is too old!"

The Graham Norton Show is on BBC One at 10.35pm on October 13.
