It's safe to say Love Actually will forever remain a beloved Christmas classic, but while many fans might know the script word-for-word, it seems as though that isn't exactly the case for one of the film's cast members.

Hugh Grant, who played the Prime Minister in the movie, has revealed that he doesn't actually remember the film's plot.

In an interview with Digital Spy, the actor discussed whether we'll ever see a Love Actually sequel, simultaneously exposing himself for forgetting what happens in the original film.

Plus, he revealed that he can't remember his own character's fate, either.

When asked about the possibility of a full sequel to Love Actually, Hugh replied: "I don't know. I've never thought about that... I can't even remember what happens in the film."

He went on to explain: "It's so long since I've seen it. You'd have to remind me [laughs]. How do I end up?"

A refresher for those who also can't remember the plot of the 2003 film: Grant's character, David (aka the Prime Minister), ended up finding love with Downing Street staff member Natalie, with their romance revealed during an on-stage kiss at the school play.

The actor actually did return to the screen as David more recently, with a Comic Relief Love Actually mini-sequel showing him dancing to Drake's Hotline Bling in 2017.

Still, some cast members certainly remember what happens in the Christmas classic, with Olivia Olson, who played Joanna in the film, recently revealing what Hugh Grant and fellow cast member Emma Thompson were really like to work with.
