LOVE Actually child star Lulu Popplewell slams “cheesy and sexist” movie and says “I think it’s s**t”.

The comedian, 29, was just 12-years-old when she played Emma Thompson’s daughter Daisy who dressed up as a lobster in the school nativity play.

However, Lulu has now slammed the hit Christmas movie – saying she thinks it’s a “s**t film”.

Speaking on the Almost Famous podcast, she said: “I don’t regret it at all. Look, softly be it spoken I think it’s a s**t film.

“I think it’s aged badly. All the women in it are sort of passive objects. I think that there was an article describing them as passive objects to be acquired.

“On re-watching it’s not great. You also have to remember that [Richard Curtis] was writing in the context of the time.

“I mean, I don’t know how he excuses more recent work. But it was in 2003 or whenever it was out.

“But it is also not for me because I don’t like cheese. I’m glad people like it.”

Love Actually, directed and written by Richard Curtis, followed eight London couples as they deal with different complications to their relationships.

Lulu is now 29-years-old and is a writer and stand-up comedian.

She previously voiced Lyra in the BBC Radio 4 version of His Dark Materials.

The young star also reminisced about meeting superstar Hugh Grant.

She said: “I remember meeting Hugh Grant as well, ’cause Richard introduced me to him.

“And he said, ‘Oh god do I have to speak to her? I hate children’. Non-ironically. Which I thought was really funny.”

Lulu also revealed she wasn’t allowed to watch the film when it came out because she was too young.

She continued: “I wasn’t even allowed to watch it when it came out because it was a 15 – there’s nipples and everything.”
