Hugh Grant, who plays Daniel Cleaver in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, says, jokingly, he enjoyed the aftermath of his role in Bridget Jones's Diary.

"It did a lot of good for me personally, actually," Hugh says. "A whole slew of women who used to despise me for being a sort of Mr. Goody-Two-Shoes suddenly looked at me with new eyes. Previous to that my fan base had been over-50s. Then, after Daniel, a few younger women were prepared to like me. I quite like him for that reason."

Hugh also joked about his feelings about having children. "I think with the right-sized children in the right clothes by my side...I think I'd look great."

But seriously: "I do quite like that idea. I have a lot of 'lost soul' friends whose souls were saved by having children. They suddenly got nicer and, you know, actually wanted to live for another 30 years."
