While making an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, the 60-year-old British actor opened up about his friendship with his Bridget Jones’s Diary costar.
“I love Renée. Uh, she’s one of the few actresses I haven’t fallen out with,” Grant admitted. “And, we, we got on very well together and, we still exchange long emails.”
“Hers in particular, at least 70 pages each, interesting stuff, but quite hard to decipher and, she’s a properly good egg and a genius,” he added. “Did you see her Judy Garland? About as good as acting gets.”
Grant and Zellweger, 51, starred together in the 2001 romantic comedy about a 32-year-old English single woman, who writes in her diary about all the things she wishes would happen in her life. However, her life dramatically changes when she suddenly has two men (Grant and Colin Firth) vying for her affection.
