Hugh Grant may play a charming ladies’ man in his rom-coms (Love, Actually, we’re looking at you) but it turns out his real-life relationships with his leading ladies might not be so warm and fuzzy off-screen.
During an appearance on last night’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, host Andy took the opportunity to get the scoop on some of Hugh’s famous former female co-stars, and the Brit quickly made it clear that there wasn’t much love lost between them.
Not only did he take a few unexpected jabs at the ladies, which included Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore, Renée Zellweger, Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore, he didn’t even recognize one of them.
Telling Andy that none of the women liked him (“They all hate me, I think,”), he gave a rather, erm, less than gentlemanly response when the host asked him which of the women was the most down to Earth.
“Down to Earth. That’s pushing it,” he said.
The jab was nothing compared to his response when Andy showed Hugh a line-up of the women, however.
“Who’s the second one from the right? I’ve never seen her in my life,” he said of his Bridget Jones’ co-star Renée Zellweger (who will soon return to the silver screen in the franchise’s third film, Bridget Jones’s Baby).
STOP IT. STOP IT RIGHT. NOW.
Andy attempted to diffuse the fire, informing Hugh of her identity, but things didn’t get much better from there.
“[She’s] not exactly down to Earth. Out to lunch… I guess Sarah Jessica Parker.”
We guess it’s a good thing Hugh WON’T be reprising his role of Daniel in the franchise’s upcoming film — ay yi yi!
Do you think Hugh’s comments were uncouth? Share over @BritandCo!
