Bridget Jones's Diary hunk Colin Firth took a fight scene for the upcoming sequel a bit too seriously - and ended up hitting co-star Hugh Grant in the face.

The British sex symbols were filming THE EDGE OF REASON in London yesterday (22OCT03) when Firth smashed his fist into Grant's face by mistake.

One onlooker says, "At one stage Colin did actually hit Hugh in the face and they had to stop filming. But they were soon laughing about it."

The pair were seeing fighting on screen in the original film where their character's MARK DARCY and DANIEL CLEAVER battle over Bridget played by RENEE ZELLWEGER.
