How do you do it? Hugh Grant begs ageless Andie MacDowell for her secrets after pair are reunited at LA awards ceremony
Twenty-two years after Four Weddings And A Funeral was a hit, the film's leading lady, Andie MacDowell, appears to have scarcely aged. Time has not been as kind to her co-star Hugh Grant, who is two years her junior.
'I'm just depressed at how much better preserved you are than I am,' wailed Grant, 56, at a film awards ceremony in Los Angeles where the pair were reunited.
Grant, who appeared in a series of turkeys following Four Weddings, was once known for his lustrous mop of floppy brown hair, now grey.

Peevishly, the foppish actor, whose once-youthful visage is now etched with lines, asked smooth-faced MacDowell: 'Do you use any special creams or anything like that?'
Rail buff Christian Wolmar is Labour's candidate in the Richmond Park by-election, where Zac Goldsmith is standing as an 'independent' Conservative.
This couldn't be the same Christian Wolmar who tweeted just months ago, 'Jeremy Corbyn, your time is up — for the sake of the party you have to resign'? Oddly, the tweets have been deleted.
Why Emma's a feminist fairy princess
Harry Potter star Emma Watson plays a Disney princess in her forthcoming film, Beauty And The Beast, but was the atmosphere on set less than magical?
I hear that the actress, worth an estimated £30 million, clashed with crew over her costume.
'She kept demanding changes to the famous ballroom dress,' says my mole.
Harry Potter star Emma Watson plays a Disney princess in new film Beauty And The Beast
The actress reportedly clashed with crew over her costume, based on the animated film
'Disney wanted a big, puffy dress and she was very anti that.
'Emma thought that was somehow "anti-feminist", so kept asking them to change it and change it again.'
It's fortunate that Emma, 26, wasn't cast as dainty-footed Cinderella, as she may be getting too big for her boots.
Oscar-winning playwright Sir Ronald Harwood claims the new West End production of his play The Dresser is far superior to last year’s BBC TV adaptation, even though that starred those grand knights Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen.
‘I saw the new one and thought it was beautifully done,’ Harwood tells me. ‘I wasn’t so mad about the one on television with Ian McKellen. But Hopkins was good, and he’s a lovely bloke.’
