Hollywood star Tim Roth has verbally attacked Charlton Heston for his controversial views on gun laws in America.

Roth claims he would not have appeared in TIM BURTON'S remake of PLANET OF THE APES had he known he would be sharing a scene with Heston, who featured in the 1968 original version of the film.

Fumes Roth, "I was contracted so I couldn't get out of it. I feel very strongly about that monster. I made my feelings clear on set but got myself in make-up and put my gear on - including rubber hands so I wouldn't be infected if I touched him - and went in. We did the scene and I promptly left."
