The Hollywood star told Le Figaro he had wanted to perform on stage in Paris 'for years' in an interview on Sunday. "I was really happy to see that it was possible," he said.

The two shows - which will be in English - will be very different, the Oscar-winner explained: "Some things are planned, from time to time, but often I decide on the moment because the environment changes everything.

"I talk about what has happened to me in life and it allows me to perform scenes from a number of plays, while talking with the audience.

"The plays I perform are not the same every night. Some scenes come from movies, others from plays that I have enjoyed seeing or playing for years."
