I am getting to like his anti-enthusiastic, rather apathetic and cynical demeanour. It's so not Hollywood (or America).

Not that he ever made a conscious decision to switch to bad guys:

If you are British in Hollywood, you will eventually be picked out to play a bad guy. It's like, if the film calls for a bad guy then the casting thinks, "Ah, who's got a British accent?"

"... I mean, how many really happy relationships do you know? "

I know many. You Sir, damaged your relationship years ago when you flew to the United States and met up with a women and all the while you were married.

Remember that?

"... I mean, how many really happy relationships do you know? "

There is one right here. And I know at least three others.

Well in the celebrity world (the world Hugh lives in) maybe there are markedly less happy relationships.

tell me it's not SO..... I always thought those movies were real.... (⌒▽⌒)

Refreshingly candid and real in a world of abject fakeness...

Well, I'm glad Hugh resolved that issue.

Rather refreshingly honest, as the truth is usually off limits in so many contexts. Naturally it's his version of truth...which he's entitled. Nice he's not so transactional, simply trying to broadly appeal to everyone in my view.

Plus, not a big deal mind you but he's the actor people mention when they first meet me, so that's my why here, along with the fact that my son shares his name!

Hollywood is completely fake - on and off the screen. This honesty from Hugh Grant makes headlines. Watchout for copycat pretenders ( also known as actors and actrsses) trying to seem hip.

In a younger me, I met with many Hollywood people, and most of them were very good, wholesome, hard working people. I never met Mr. Grant, but it looks like his onscreen persona is less troubled than his real life one. Mr. Grant's real life story is not a comedy.

Well, we all know what Hugh Grant's notion of "romance" is and it comes with a price tag.

Revelation. Actually his career went a bit off after his liaison with a hollywood streetwalker. Nice to see him back as a villain

How can anyone not love Hugh Grant?

And then Divine Brown got her Famous 15 Minutes in America. Sad.

More like playing himself to me. Too many 'actors' today do that and it's pathetic.
