Parker 'loves' Hugh Grant

The 'Sex and the City' actress Sarah Jessica Parker stars alongside Hugh in new movie 'Did You Hear About The Morgans?' and admits she has been a fan of his films for years.

She said: “With this movie, I was basically shoved up inside his jacket pocket. I just loved it. I love him. He is very, very good at what he does.

"I paid to see him in 'Four Weddings And A Funeral' again and again! I wanted to be in a romantic comedy opposite him for years."

The 44-year-old star recently admitted she jumped at the chance to star in 'Did You Hear About The Morgans?' because she had wanted to work alongside Hugh for so long.

Sarah - who has three children, eight-year-old James and six-month-old twins Marion and Tabitha, with husband Matthew Broderick - said: "I think I remember auditioning to co-star with Hugh in 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'. I think I did. I know I screen tested for 'Nine Months'. Of course, I didn't get either. I have wanted to appear opposite him in a romantic comedy for basically as long as Americans, especially women, have known and loved Hugh Grant.

"Every time I kissed Hugh, I told him I was doing it for America."
