Alfie Allen takes a beating at paintball

Actor Alfie Allen - brother to singer Lily - reportedly celebrated his recent birthday by taking part in the stag party favourite paintball.

The 23-year-old is reportedly in Liverpool filming a new movie with Kevin Sampson, but took time out with friends to celebrate his big day.

However, the Liverpool Echo explained the star was more of a target than a warrior in the game, taking a pounding off the other participants.

He told a reporter he was suffering from bruises after taking a beating at the war sport.

"I can hardly walk," Allen explained. "I'm supposed to be filming the shower scenes this week so I'm hoping they'll be able to cover these bruises with make-up."

Those booking paintball for a stag weekend will be hoping they fare better than the performer, who is son to actor Keith Allen.

Meanwhile, Take That star Mark Owen recently celebrated his stag party in New York with Robbie Williams as guest of honour.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19384614-ADNFCR
