Love Actually child star talks about the movie

Child star Lulu Popplewell played Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman's daughter Daisy in Love Actually.

You'll remember she played the lobster in the school play.

Well, it turns out the now 29-year-old really doesn't like the movie.

The stand-up comedian made the revelation during an appearance on the Almost Famous podcast yesterday.

Lulu said, "I don't regret it at all. Look, softly be it spoken I think it's a s*it film."

"I think it's aged badly."

She explained, "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," Lulu added.

Richard Curtis wrote and directed the film, which came out in 2003.

Lulu said of his work, "You also have to remember that he was writing in the context of the time."

"I mean I don't know how he excuses more recent work."

She added, "But it was in 2003 or whenever it was out."

Lulu also recognised that she really doesn't like, "cheese," so that's one of the main reasons it's, "not for [her]."

"I'm glad people like it," she said.

Where is Lulu now?

Lulu is a stand-up comedian and writer.

She's also quite the musician.

The comedian is always sharing videos of herself playing music on Twitter.

The 29-year-old isn't the only one in her family with acting credits.

Her sister Anna Popplewell played Susan Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia.

It turns out their parents never wanted them to become actors.

Lulu told the podcast, "Our parents sent us to a drama club to help with confidence and public speaking and it completely backfired."
