Hugh Hefner plans wedding movie night

Hugh Hefner will watch 'Runaway Bride' on what was supposed to be his wedding day.

The Playboy founder was set to marry Crystal Harris on Saturday but the 25-year-old blonde has now called off the wedding so the 85-year-old lothario is now planning to watch the Julia Roberts movie, in which she jilts her grooms at the alter.

He tweeted: "Since we're not getting married on Saturday, I've scheduled a movie: "Runaway Bride." Seems appropriate. (sic)"

Although Hugh is devastated by the split, he is pleased it happened now rather than later.

He said: The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage. (sic)"

Following the split, Hugh - who has been married twice before - has been given support by his former girlfriends Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson.

He said: "Bridget Marquardt came by to give me her loving support. Very dear."

While mother-of-one Kendra - who is now married to NFL star Hank Baskett - wrote on her twitter page: "We r comin over w some jack n coke. Oh, n a pipe lol. (sic)"

Recently crowned Playboy Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair also spoke out in support of Hugh, saying she isn't surprised Crystal called the nuptials off.

She said: "I'm not surprised in the least. She seemed very unhappy. It was blatantly obvious to everyone that they didn't have much in common. ...Nobody really understood it. But Hef cared for her and she made him happy, so of course everyone was going to support him.

"He deserves better. It's a selfish move to do it so suddenly. She should have been a little more adult about it and decided months ago. To put people through this five days before a wedding, I think it's horrific."
