Sally Phillips reveals that Hugh Grant is no longer on speaking terms with her

Hugh Grant used to love mean gossip, but clearly not if it’s about himself.

Sally Phillips, 52, who starred in two Bridget Jones films alongside Renee Zellweger, with the silly 62-year-old, reveals: “Hugh Grant doesn’t speak to me because I got very drunk in Thailand and was very indiscreet, and then he was afraid of my huge mouth.’

Speaking on the Richard Herring Leicester Square Theater Podcast, she adds: ‘I lost my flip-flops in the sea and I was sick in the sand toilet of the guitar bar.

‘Now he doesn’t talk to me except on set… which is totally fair enough.’

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason – starring Renée Zellweger – was partly set in Thailand, as Bridget visits a TV spot with Daniel Cleaver (Hugh).

Sally played Shazza in the film and accompanied Bridget on the trip, where she falls for a local man who turns out to be planting drugs in a gift she’s been given.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Renée is making a comeback as Bridget Jones – with a son in tow.

The actress, 53, is said to be returning to her famous role as the lovable bachelor for a fourth film in the popular franchise.

It was reported by The sun in July that producers have been ‘secretly’ working on the project.

Bridget was last on the big screen six years ago when the film Bridget Jones’ Baby saw her pregnant and trying to find out who the father was.

The rumored upcoming film is understood to be written by creator Helen Fielding, 64, and will see Renée tell the story of motherhood with her boy.

A source said: ‘There have been few more successful or more popular rom-coms than Bridget Jones over the past few decades, but everyone thought this one was done for good.

‘But the producers always knew there was a big market for another sequel when the right story was available and this feels like the right time to tell it.

‘It will be seven or eight years since the last film when this one hits the big screen and fans will be desperate to find out what happened. It’s a British classic.’

In the third Bridget film, lawyer Mark Darcy, played by Colin Firth, 61, was revealed to be the father and not charming new love interest Jack Qwant, portrayed by 56-year-old Patrick Dempsey.

The film also featured appearances from Jim Broadbent, 73, Emma Thompson, 63, Celia Imrie, 70, as well as a cameo from 31-year-old Ed Sheeran.

Hugh’s seedy character Daniel didn’t make an appearance, but the door is open for his return in the new film as a newspaper headline shown at the end of the last episode revealed he had been found alive a year after his presumed death .

Launched in 2001 and based on the best-selling book Bridget Jones’ Diary, the films were beloved for charting the struggles of binge-drinking, chain-smoking Bridget as she struggled to find love in her 30s, and have earned nearly 1 billion at the ticket office.

Love Triangle: Despite her awkwardness, Bridget found herself in a love triangle in each of the films, including Colin Firth as Mark Darcy and Hugh Grant as Daniel Cleaver (seen in the 2004 film)

Bridget spoke about the possibility of reprising the role earlier this year.

When asked about playing Bridget again The Jess Cagle Show on SiriusXM, Renée said: ‘I hope so. I hope so. I mean it’s funny, you know, she’s so funny.’

She added: ‘I love being in her shoes. I mean, it makes me laugh, you know, every day on set the choices we have to make about how awkward we can make her circumstances. It’s just so much fun.’

Explaining why Bridget is so popular with audiences, the What If actress explained: ‘I think she’s so endearing … her self-deprecating kind of determination.

‘I love her. And I think it’s really rare to get to follow a character through different stages of her life.

‘And in a way that we find her relatable because she is similar to our own life experiences at that time. I mean, Helen wrote another book, so there’s that.’
