Tough-guy actor Ray Winstone enjoys stripping off to his Speedos on the beach.

Winstone, 53, says his wife Elaine isn't too keen on his choice of swimwear but he defies her and goes out in it anyway.

He told the UK's Daily Star: "All the Yanks wear Bermuda shorts. I'm not having that so I get the Speedos out. My wife says, 'You're not going out like that'. And I say, 'Of course I am, I'm British'."

Winstone has starred in movies such as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Edge of Darkness and Beowulf.

However, the actor admitted that he wasn't interested in the recent Oscars ceremony.

He said: "I missed the Oscars. I was busy washing my hair. I can't be doing with all that."
