British actor HUGH GRANT has fallen head over heels for his BRIDGET JONES' DIARY (2001) co-star Renée Zellweger, according to British tabloid DAILY STAR.
The NOTTING HILL (1999) star plays love-rat DANIEL who two-times the desperate diarist Bridget in the adaptation from HELEN FIELDING's best-selling novel.
Since filming ended, the 40-year-old actor has been spoiling the stunning Texan with flowers and phonecalls. Both Hugh and Renee are single, after splitting from lovers ELIZABETH HURLEY and JIM CARREY last year (00).
An insider on the set of the movie says the couple were regularly spotted together and the chemistry between the pair was obvious. The insider says, "Hugh and Renee were constantly together, huddling on the side during breaks. They were constantly touching and laughing and Hugh was all smiles. Renee would always blush when he approached." (ES/WNTST/PDD)
