She said: “I remember meeting Hugh and he said, ‘Oh God, do I have to speak to her? I hate children’.”

Lulu, now a 29-year-old comedian, said Grant, 60, who starred alongside Martine McCutcheon, was not being ironic.

She was 12 when her character Daisy famously told on-screen mum Emma Thompson that she was one of the lobsters in her school’s nativity play.

But Lulu said she now hates the hit 2003 movie for its portrayal of women.

She told the Almost Famous podcast: “I don’t regret it at all.

“But look, softly be it spoken, I think it’s a s*** film. It has aged badly.

“All the women in it are sort of passive objects. On re-watching, it’s not great.

“You also have to remember that Richard was writing in the context of the time.

“But it’s not for me because I don’t like cheese.

“I wasn’t allowed to watch it when it came out because it was a 15 — there were nipples.’’
