Kevin Costner ** is rumoured to be interested in acquiring the real-life title of Robin Hood, presumably as a reminder of his once-glittering career - the actor played the forest-dweller in 1991's Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. **Locksley was the surname of the philanthropic medieval hero, who you may recall, robbed from the rich to give to the poor.

British auction house Allsop are selling off the title - The Lord of the Manor of Locksley - as part of their monthly sale this month, though Empire Online was unable to confirm today whether there's a suitable manor house to go with the moniker. If Costner goes ahead with the purchase - which has guide price of £100,000 - he'll also get a title thrown in for the woman in his life (if he marries her).
