I stayed up for election night and it's catching up with me, says Leo

Leonardo DiCaprio could have been forgiven for being a little tired at the London premiere of his latest thriller Body Of Lies.

The Hollywood heart-throb followed all-night celebrations of Barack Obama's election victory with a transatlantic flight to the film's Rome premiere, before arriving in the British capital.

He said the historic result had left him with a "current of excitement running through my body". "I couldn't be more proud of my country right now, proud to be an American."

Screaming fans lined the red carpet at Leicester Square, where he was joined by director Ridley Scott and guest Olivier Martinez. Leo's movie, which also features Australian star Russell Crowe, centres on a US agent hunting for a terrorist mastermind.
