Actor Bill Nighy will be forever grateful to writer/director pal Richard Curtis for helping him deliver one of the best wedding speeches ever.

The British actor, who has teamed up with Curtis for The Girl in the Cafe, Love Actually and Pirate Radio, among other movies, asked his friend to help him with a "pivotal speech" he was asked to deliver at another pal's wedding - and the filmmaker delivered perfection in just 24 hours.

Nighy tells WENN, "I could do the serious bit but I knew I had to have some jokes. I texted Richard Curtis and he said, 'Tell me a couple of things about the groom'...

Nick Frost Squeezed Into The 'Pirate Radio' Boat

Richard "Love Actually" Curtis tells a historical story in Pirate Radio. In the early '60s, rock n' roll music was banned in the U.K., so DJs just sailed boats off the coast to broadcast.
