Everyone knows Hugh Grant, a blue-eyed king of romantic movies. Incredibly handsome and well-educated, he is known by various talents, including the ability to be friends with his ex-girlfriends (Liz Hurley, for example) and to appear in the center of a spicy scandal, when he was caught by LA police in the company of a local prostitute.
Hugh was born in a middle-class family in England. His father, a former military man, earned his living as a carpet salesman, while his mother was a teacher. He grew up alongside an older brother James.
He was incredibly beautiful in his young years, and that was the reason of his troubles. Very often classmates bullied him, and Hugh was fighting with them. Very often his cute face was smashed.
He starred in school performances, but after graduation decided to study literature. He entered New College, Oxford, but continued playing on the stage as a part of “Piers Gaveston Society” – the acting club for students.
In middle 1980s he focused his energy on the activity of an actor. The young man appeared in his first projects, but none of them became successful. He was struggling for his stardom, and joined acting with the regular job of a copywriter. In 1987 finally his fate gave him a smile.
