Hugh Grant sheds light on a bit of Bridget Jones Diary drama.
In a new documentary, Being Bridget Jones, that Love indeed star shared why Renée Zellweger starring in rom-com 2000 came something of a controversy.
“There was a whole scandal about why this is not a British actress? I did not know Renée Zellweger, and a Texan who played a British character, it seemed like a stretch,” the 60-year-old actor explained. “She was asked that kind of, well, she thought she’d better loosen it up a little bit.”
Renée clearly took the advice, which Hugh later added: “Then she came in, and that was it Princess Margaret have had a stroke. But a week later it was a bang. “A bang on as both stars continued to reproduce their ratings in the 2004 sequel The edge of reason. Zellweger took on the franchise’s third and final film, Bridget Jones baby, without her co-star in 2016.
