British actors in Guinness records


British actors Hugh Laurie and Christopher Lee have had their status as top Hollywood stars confirmed with entries in the Guinness World Records 2009.

The latest list of record-breaking achievements, which goes on sale on Wednesday, will see 86-year-old acting veteran Lee crowned Most Connected Living Actor.

A database created by the University of Virginia mapped the working relationships between more than a million actors and actresses, and identified Lee as living "in the centre of the Hollywood universe".

London-born Lee, who has been made a CBE, was listed in the 2001 record book as the star with the most screen appearances to his name - after playing about 300 film and TV roles.
