HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE star Ralph Fiennes has slammed the first two big screen adaptations, insisting "they didn't do anything for me".

Fiennes plays villainous LORD VOLDEMORT in the forthcoming fourth wizard fantasy and claims it took a lot to persuade him to accept the part of the scary sorcerer.

He says, "All I knew was that my character, Voldemort, is the big, big Mr Evil who's more evil than anyone's ever been evil before.

"To be honest, I didn't like the first two films, they didn't do anything for me.

"But I thought, 'Aw, f**k it. It's so far from everything else I've done. It's two days work for a big f**k-off Mr Evil scene."
