About Hugh Grant

Hugh's private Frau ist Anna Eberstein.

Hugh John Mungo Grant is an English actor and film producer. He has received a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA, and an Honorary César. His movies have also earned more than $2.4 billion from 25 theatrical releases worldwide.

Grant achieved international stardom after playing writer Richard Curtis in the sleeper hit Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994). He used this breakthrough role as a frequent cinematic persona during the 1990s to deliver comic performances in mainstream films like Mickey Blue Eyes (1999) and Notting Hill (1999). By the turn of the century, he had established himself as a leading man skilled with a satirical comic talent. In recent years, Grant has expanded his oeuvre with critically acclaimed turns as a cad in Bridget Jones's Diary (2001), About A Boy (2002), and American Dreamz (2006).

He has been criticised by students of cinema for putting emphasis on nuanced mannerisms, for the predictability of his movies, and for his unwillingness to stretch as an actor. Within the film industry, he is cited as a anti-movie star who approaches his roles like a character actor, with the ability to make acting look trivial and effortless. Hallmarks of his comic skills include a nonchalant touch of irony/sarcasm and studied physical mannerisms as well as his precisely-timed dialogue delivery and facial expressions.

Widespread media speculation about Grant's reportedly very strong personality, being a major movie star and life off the big screen has often overshadowed his work as a thespian. Over years of fame, he has been identified in popular culture as a figure of kindness and charisma, charm, sharp tongue, and wit, who is very vocal about his disrespect for the profession of acting and his disdain toward the culture of celebrity. He is equally infamous for his grumpiness, political incorrectness, hostilities with the media, and bad temper. In a career spanning 20 years, Grant has repeatedly claimed that acting is not a true calling but just a job he fell into.
