Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on her weight gain in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004)] Emotionally, gaining the weight didn't affect me. In fact, I was afraid that I didn't gain enough weight. We were working six days a week, so my fear was that I'd lose a few pounds from the work, and the fluctuations in my weight would show on the screen. But they weren't noticeable. See more »

Trivia:

Her dog, Dylan, a collie-golden retriever mix, died in November 2003. See more »
