HOLLYWOOD star Vince Vaughn has called on Noel and Liam Gallagher to "bury the hatchet" after revealing he is a big Oasis fan.

The American actor said he believed the Mancunian brothers had to "let it go at some point" as they continue their long-standing feud since the band split in 2009.

At the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, Hacksaw Ridge, Vaughn told the Press Association: "I do like a bit of Oasis.

"I like both of them. I'd like to see them bury the hatchet, those two. They've got to let it go at some point."

Rumours of an Oasis reunion have gathered pace following the recent release of Supersonic, a documentary about the band.

But Liam (44), who has aimed a series of insults at his older brother on Twitter, has claimed Noel does not want the group to reform.

He told Radio X: "(Noel) wants to be in a solo band. If people think me having a dig on Twitter is what's stopping the band getting back together, they're mad."

Oasis emerged as one of Britain's biggest-selling bands in the 1990s with a string of hits including Wonderwall, Don't Look Back In Anger and Champagne Supernova.

Definitely Maybe, the band's first album, became the fastest selling debut in British history when it was released in 1994. The group scored eight UK number one singles and eight numbers one albums.

Vaughn was joined on the red carpet of the Hacksaw Ridge screening by co-star Andrew Garfield and director Mel Gibson.

The film, which is due out in UK cinemas next year, tells the true story of Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector to receive America's Medal of Honour after saving the lives of 75 men on a Second World War battlefield without carrying a gun.

Minnesota-born actor Vaughn visited Northern Ireland with his sister Valerie during the making of their documentary the Art of the Conflict. The film focused on mural art and its relationship to the Troubles.
