The 56-year-old star was offered the chance to play Professor Gilderoy Lockhart in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” – the second film in the series – but was furious when he realized that Rupert Everett, who was also considered for the role, would be paid more.

Alan told The Daily Telegraph: “Told them fuck themselves. They wanted me and Rupert Everett to do a screen test, and they said they couldn’t pay me more than a certain amount. sum, they just didn’t do it. I had more money in the budget and had the same agent as Rupert, who of course was going to pay more.

“(They) were blatantly lying, lying stupidly too. For example, if you lie, be smart about it. I said, tell them to fuck right now.

“And (I) thought, ‘Well, Rupert is going to have the part.’ They gave him a screen test, and I remember he brought his own wig.”

Alan admits his tirade made no sense as Sir Kenneth Branagh ended up playing the character.

He said: “And then they gave it to Kenneth Branagh.”

Alan also appeared in the Spice Girls’ movie “Spice World” and has revealed that he would be willing to star in a possible sequel with the “Wannabe” hitmakers, although he doubts they will ask him.

He said: “I would jump at the chance. They didn’t ask me and I’m sure they won’t, but that would be fun. I love these girls.”
