Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker at the "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" film premiere in London

Sarah Jessica Parker "loves" Hugh Grant.

The "Sex and the City" actress stars alongside Grant in new movie "Did You Hear About The Morgans?" and admits she has been a fan of his films for years.

She said: "With this movie, I was basically shoved up inside his jacket pocket. I just loved it. I love him. He is very, very good at what he does. "I paid to see him in 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' again and again! I wanted to be in a romantic comedy opposite him for years."

The 44-year-old star recently admitted she jumped at the chance to star in "Did You Hear About The Morgans?" because she had wanted to work alongside Grant for so long.

Parker - who has three children, eight-year-old James and six-month-old twins Marion and Tabitha, with Irish-American husband Matthew Broderick - said: "I think I remember auditioning to co-star with Hugh in 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'. I think I did. I know I screen-tested for 'Nine Months.'

"Of course, I didn't get either. I have wanted to appear opposite him in a romantic comedy for basically as long as Americans, especially women, have known and loved Hugh Grant.

"Every time I kissed Hugh, I told him I was doing it for America."
