The "Love Actually" reunion premiered in the U.K. on Friday (Saturday night in the U.S. on NBC), and included such funny scenes as Hugh Grant dancing to “Hotline Bling” — and a cameo by a very famous supermodel.
The 10-minute follow-up to the hit 2003 holiday film revisited the lives of each of the flick’s main characters, starting with, of course, Mark (Andrew Lincoln) and Juliet (Keira Knightley). At the beginning of the short film, Mark reenacts his famous cue card scene, ringing Juliet and her husband Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor)’s doorbell a la his profession of love in the 2003 classic. Juliet informs Mark that she’s quite happy with her life with Peter, and is stunned when the formerly lovelorn Mark reveals that he’s found love too — with supermodel Kate Moss. “Hi nice to meet you,” Moss’ own cue card reads.
Meanwhile, another one of the original film’s main characters, the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) grooves to Drake’s “Hotline Bling”. (He later has to embarrassingly admit to this after showing up to a press conference with his arm in a sling.)
Updates on other characters include a glimpse at Jamie (Colin Firth) and Aurelia (Lucia Moniz) 14 years after they first met and fell in love. The pair now share a car full of kids, but Jamie still hasn’t mastered Portuguese despite his books-on-tape tactic. When Aurelia tells him she’s pregnant, he replies, “That’s great. That is great. Can we have rice with it this time though? I’m getting a little tired of stir-fry.”
