Firth Sick Of Fighting Hugh

Colin Firth is relieved filming has finished on the new Bridget Jones movie - because he doesn't have to fight Hugh Grant anymore.

The two actors star as love rivals in upcoming sequel BRIDGET JONES: THE EDGE OF REASON, and come to blows again, as they did in the 2001 original.

But Firth explains he's had enough of grappling with his fellow British star, "I'm always fighting Hugh. We don't even do a good job of it.

"It's not like Arnie (SCHWARZENEGGER) and Sylvester Stallone going for it. We just scratch and scrap like playground schoolboys."
