Love Actually Child Star Slams Movie As 'Cheesy, Sh*t And Sexist'

Love Actually Child Star Slams Movie As 'Cheesy, Sh*t And Sexist'

Love Actually is considered a classic in the league of Christmas movies - but it seems one star of the romantic comedy doesn't have that much love for the film at all.

Lulu Popplewell was just 12-years-old when she was cast as the schoolgirl who played the lobster in the school nativity in the 2003 Richard Curtis flick.

But Lulu, now 29, has taken aim at the film, branding it "cheesy, sh*t and sexist".

Now a comedian, Lulu also revealed she was snubbed by the show's star Hugh Grant who "non ironically" said he hates children.

Lulu spoke about the film on her podcast Almost Famous, where she said: "I don't regret it at all.

"Look, softly be it spoken I think it's a sh*t film.

"I think it's aged badly. All the women in it are sort of passive objects.

"I think that there was an article describing them as passive objects to be acquired. On re watching it's not great."

"But it was 2003 or whenever it was out.

"But it is also not for me because I don't like cheese. I'm glad people like it.

"I wasn't even allowed to watch it when it came out because it was a 15 - there's nipples and everything."

Lulu added: "I remember meeting Hugh Grant as well, 'cos Richard introduced me to him.

"And he said 'oh god do I have to speak to her? I hate children'.

"Non ironically. Which I thought was really funny." Erm - kind of rude!

Each to their own Lulu, but we still think Love Actually is still one of the best Christmas movies ever!
