Colin Farrell and Patrick Stewart had a good laugh as they compared each other’s action figures during an interview with The Late Late Show host James Corden. 

Both stars giggled and laughed as they sized up the toys, with 45-year-old Farrell, who portrays the Penguin in the superhero film The Batman, saying he was not impressed with the action figure based on him.

“The eyebrows are in the neighbourhood,” Colin said, when asked by Corden (43) about how he felt about his first action figure looking nothing like him.

“I look like I'm wearing a sumo thing. The crotch is all wrong. Far too ample."

When James produced Patrick's Captain Picard action figure and compared it to Colin's, the Irish actor described his action figure's behind as, “it's very flat, it looks like I've been sitting down for 10 years.”

Patrick (81) then asked, “could you just turn me around?” which prompted Colin to describe the Captain Picard action figure's behind as “pert”.

“It really is,” said James.

“I swear to you that I didn't know,” Patrick insisted to which James replied: “Yeah you did! Look at that, it's a tight peach.”

The actors also discussed travelling to space, following William Shatner's recent adventure with Patrick saying he had thought about it, adding, “I think I would pass”, while Colin joked: “I would pass out”.

When James asked Colin, who he said he knew was a nervous flyer, what he would do if there was turbulence on a plane, Colin grabbed Patrick's hand.

“You touched me”, Patrick exclaimed, raising his arms in the air, as Colin asked him, “did I break protocol?”

Later in the interview, James showed the audience a photo of Colin as the Penguin and asked if it was true that the first time he wore the make-up that no one recognised him when he went to a Starbucks.

“Absolutely, and I ordered an oat milk latte and they seemed very surprised,” Colin confirmed, adding that some of the other actors also didn't recognise him.

“Jeffrey Wright walked by and I said, ‘morning man’, and he looked at me like he wanted me thrown off the set,” said Colin. “Then he went over and talked to the director and the director pointed at him and came back and said, ''Colin?''

Patrick also told a story about how, when he was filming the original Dune, that everyone was talking about Sting being on set.

“One day I was sitting next to him and I said ‘Sting, they say you are a musician’, and he said 'yup’.

“And I said, ‘what do you play’. He said ‘bass’. I said, ‘I've always wanted to ask people why they choose to play that huge instrument. It's standing up and you don't get to sit down.

Patrick said Sting giggled and said 'no not a double bass a bass guitar'. I said, ‘Really, that's amazing, do you play in a band? He said yeah 'The Police.' And I said, 'you play in a police band?"
