Our Man Crush Monday, Hugh Grant has had a career spanning over thirty years. The actor and producer has made a living playing the likeable posh totty. Throughout the 90s and the early 2000s he played the leading role in a number of highly-grossing films such as Notting Hill, Love Actually, Mickey Blue Eyes, Bridget Jones’ Diary, Four Weddings and a Funeral and About A Boy. The London-born actor will be seen on-screen in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming feature film adaptation of the popular 1960s TV series the The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Least likely to…get involved in the culture of celebrity. He has often spoken out against the media coverage over his private life and he has often felt that the media coverage sometimes overshadows his work as an actor.
Impress him with…hard work. Hugh is known to have a very strong work ethic.
Mention…his role in the phone hacking exposé. As a victim of the hacking scandal, Hugh Grant wrote an article in the New Statesman in 2011 exposing a News Of The World hacker and ‘turning the tables’ on a tabloid journalist. His article – and TV appearances discussing the topic – led Hugh Grant to gain extra popularity.
And another thing…Grant has often admitted that acting was never a career he initially considered, but a job he accidentally fell into.
