British pop star Robbie Williams' quest to find success in Hollywood has been dealt a timely boost - from his ex Take That bandmate Mark Owen.

Owen is convinced Williams - who is making his big screen debut in upcoming Cole Porter biopic DE-LOVELY - will be able to transfer his vibrant personality to the movie studio with ease.

He says, "I think Robbie'll be great at acting - he's so talented.

"He's got the personality to be able to do that. I saw him when I was in LA recording my latest single, MAKIN' OUT."
