Veteran rocker Bob Dylan usually inspires reverence wherever he goes - except when Val Kilmer's children visited the set of movie MASKED AND ANONYMOUS.

Kilmer's children - Mercedes, 12, and Jack, eight - were on the set of the film, which features private Dylan as a fallen singer, when they encountered the sixties legend and remained completely unfazed by his presence.

Kilmer - who has a cameo in the film - explains, "Everyone was particularly aware of his Bob-ness so were giving him a wide berth.

"Except my kids, who just got closer and closer until they were virtually in the scenes with him."
