It's been 17 years since "Bridget Jones's Diary" first hit the scene, turning freelance journalist Helen Fielding into a best-selling author and screenwriter. Her latest installment, "Mad About the Boy," follows Bridget, now 51, as she copes with the loss of her beloved Mark Darcy while trying to raise their children. We talked with Fielding over the phone about how it feels to bring Bridget back into the public eye (while taking lots of heat from those Colin Firth fans!).
