Now 50 years old, the actor was thrown the surprise event at the burlesque supper club Duane Park in New York by husband Grant Shaffer.

Treated to an eye-catching performance from self-appointed "variety vixen" Amber Ray, she "shook her tassels far and wide", celebrating the occasion according to the New York Post.

More entertainment came in the form of a fire-eater and hula hoop artist who performed with up to 27 hoops at once.

An impressive guest list was made up of celebrities including Bonnie Wright, Jackie Hoffman and Anson Mount.

The party comes shortly after Alan revealed that he enjoys pretending to be a porn star to those who recognise him but cannot place where he's from.

He explained: "Usually they know, but I love it if they don't. Sometimes I say, 'Oh, I'm an artist.'

"Then sometimes if people say, 'Where do I know you from?' I always say, 'Do you watch a lot of porn?' "
