Despite co- staring in one of the biggest rom-coms ever, Hugh Grant failed to recognise former Bridget Jones's Diary star Renée Zellweger.
The British actor, who will appear in Florence Foster Jenkins alongside Meryl Streep, was asked a series of questions on Watch What Happens Live about six of his former female co-stars but became baffled when he couldn't figure out who one of them was.
"Who is the one second from the right, because I've never seen her before in my life?" Grant asked, only to be left feeling shocked when someone told him who it was. "Oh Renée!"
He continued to throw a few digs at his former co-stars saying that none of them were "down to earth" and admitted "they all hate me, I think".
Grant's inability to recognise Zellweger comes after the actress received such harsh criticism for her different appearance as of late that she penned an open letter that slammed sexist double standards.
Zellweger further explained that, "Not that it's anyone's business, but I did not make a decision to alter my face and have surgery on my eyes," she wrote.
