Julia Stiles has joined fellow Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow in attacking British men for being too shy to ask her out.

The Save the Last Dance actress is currently living in London whilst she appears in the West End stage play OLEANNA - but Stiles has, like Paltrow, found men are less forthcoming than those in her native America.

She whines, "Gwyneth was right. English men are all lovely, but too shy. Not one has so much as asked me for a drink since I got here."
