The 54-year-old British actor opened up about his past relationships and on-screen loves on an episode of Watch What Happens Live on February 18.

Hugh, who split from his Rowing With the Wind co-star in 2000, was confronted about the demise of their 12-year relationship.

He told host Andy Cohen: "It did [work out]. She's still my best friend. The sex bit probably fizzled out, but now she's my absolute best friend.

"[She's] the number one person I call in a crisis."

However, if there's one person who he hasn't remained as amicable with it's former Notting Hill co-star Julia Roberts.

Hugh quipped: "I mean, I would be, I suppose, but I've probably made too many jokes about the size of her mouth. She might hate me by now."

The Two Weeks Notice star jokingly added that it wasn't hard to kiss her and "was aware of a faint echo" when they kissed.

When asked by host Andy about the last time he'd watched a porn movie, Hugh laughing replied, "Ah, I'm rather proud of this, about three years ago. I went cold turkey."

"I now have three children. I think there is a correlation."

Hugh has three children: Tabitha, 3, and Felix, 1, with receptionist Tinglan Hong, as well as a two-year-old child with Anna Eberstein, a TV producer.
