The Undoing star, 60, responded to Elizabeth Hurley’s recent Twitter pic of herself holding up two jars of marmalade. “Lockdown has turned me into a demented housewife: 47 jars of marmalade are nestling in my larder and another sack of Seville oranges await me,” the Royals alum, 55, shared on Sunday, January 17.
Impressed by Elizabeth Hurley’s newfound skill, Hugh Grant retweeted the post and wrote, “Paddington 3.” (The beloved children’s character Paddington Bear is known for his fondness for marmalade.)
Hugh Grant played villain Phoenix Buchanan in Paddington 2 in 2017. Two years later, he said during a Vanity Fair interview that the children’s flick is “the best film he’d ever been in. The Bridget Jones’ Diary actor split from Elizabeth Hurley in 2000 after 13 years of dating. Despite calling it quits, the two A-listers have remained close friends.
Hugh Grant says that they are like brother and sister. He thinks it’s partly because they went from zero to somewhere together, and they went through terrible years at the beginning when neither of them had any work, living in a tiny flat. It was quite bonding.
Hugh Grant additionally noted that he was “an idiot” during his romantic relationship with the Austin Powers actress, whom he cheated on with a prostitute in 1995. He didn’t try to say that he had a psychological problem, he just said, ‘I did it.’ He knows he did a really bad thing.
