People are furious with Hugh Grant after he reacted to a photo of Renee Zellweger.

Hugh Grant has been many things over the years.

Whether it’s a leading romantic man or *that* guy in the back of a car.

But, his latest stunt has left people calling him an “asshole” and completely typical of Hugh Grant.

Appearing on the Watch What Happens Live! show on Thursday night, the actor was asked a series of questions on his former female co-stars.

With the little bobble heads of Drew Barrymore, Julia Roberts, Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, Renee Zellweger, and Sarah Jessica-Parker, Grant was first asked who makes the most effort to keep in touch with him.

“Uhh,” he inititally stumbles. “None, they all hate me, I think.”

Inititally you’re thinking, ‘Oh, poor Hugh.’

But, his next comments gets us thinking why they're probably glad to have left him behind.

Host, Andy Cohen questions, "Who's the most down-to-earth of these women?"

Grant says, "Down to earth? That's pushing it."

Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse he points at the screen, "Who's the second from the right?"

Who, Hugh? Who is that?

Only Renee Zellweger. You know that blonde woman who's granny pants were so gloriously charming in Bridget Jones.

That's who.

The host eventually had to tell Grant, who was still befuddled.

"Second from the right is Renee [Zellweger]."

"Oh, Renee!" Grant said surprised. "Not exactly down to earth. Out to lunch. I guess... Sarah Jessica [Parker]."

Everyone can have a completely memory blank every now and then, but to then publically criticise is a pretty big low.

Considering all this, we're glad Grant's not coming back for Bridget Jones number three.

He doesn't deserve her granny pants, anyway.
