Hugh Grant, one of Britain’s best-known faces, goes through his storied career in the video for GQ men’s magazine. From ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ to ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ to ‘Love Actually’.
“For Weddings and a Funerals, I got the script and I thought there must be some mistake. My agent has sent me a good script. So I rang him up and I said I think there has been a mistake, you send me a good script. They did that once before with Jerry Maguire and I said, I think there is a mistake here. They said ‘yes sorry, that is a mistake, that was meant for Tom Cruise’. But the script for Weddings, it was meant for me,” laughs Hugh Grant.
“The dancing scene in the Love Actually was for me a terrible cloud hanging over the whole production. It is hard enough to dance if you are Englisch and middle-aged even with six pints inside you.”
Hugh Grant last film project is a British three-part series about the Jeremy Thorpe scandal in Britain, in which MP Jeremy Thorpe was tried and acquitted of conspiring to murder his former lover, Norman Scott. He plays Jeremy Thorpe. The series premiered on BBC One on 20 May 2018 and on Amazon Prime on 29 June 2018.
