Hollywood star Sandra Bullock launched her new comedy in London on Wednesday with the help of actor Hugh Grant.

The pair were in Leicester Square for the UK premiere of Miss Congeniality 2.

"He's a great friend," Bullock said of her Two Weeks Notice co-star. "And he takes a blinkingly good picture. He's disgustingly photogenic."

Grant repaid the compliment by telling reporters: "I have always said, and I still say it, I think she is the best comic actress in the world."

He added: "I don't think there is a better one, and I am in awe of her talent in that way."

'Redeem myself'

Bullock tripped up on the red carpet at the UK premiere of the original Miss Congeniality in March 2001. "I figured I had to redeem myself," she said.

"I thought if I walked in normal this time it would make up for it," she added.

Celebrities at the premiere, at the Vue Cinema in London's Leicester Square, included Eurovision hopeful Javine Hylton, Liberty X singer Michelle Heaton and model Nell McAndrew.

Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous sees Bullock reprise her role as FBI agent-turned-beauty queen Gracie Hart.

The film, which also stars Star Trek actor William Shatner, opens in the UK on 25 March.
