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 dining 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. He acted in “Maurice”, a complicated drama of James Ivory about homosexual love.

Since then Hugh is prominent English actor, whose ideal face is known to everyone. He has already portrayed lots of screen heroes, which have become favorite for many people worldwide. He is a loafer Will from “About a Boy”, good-natured heart-eater William Thacker, who lives in Notting Hill and an insidious chief of a plump, but pretty Bridget Jones. He is an incredibly lyrical and multifaceted actor, who was a bachelor during many years, and finally decided to tie a knot. Let’s read about his family.

Interesting and fun facts

  1. When his films are translated for French viewers, his heroes always are voiced by his French colleague Vincent Cassel.
  2. He is a big fan of sports. The actor plays tennis, cricket, and golf in his free time.
  3. One of his most famous roles is Charles from “Four Weddings and a Funeral”. At first, the actor was sure this project would become a flop.
  4. Grant is a successful art dealer. In 2001, he bought a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor, painted by Andy Warhol, for $4 million. Six years later, the artwork was estimated at $23, 5 million.
  5. Previously the actor was sure, that he would be an eternal bachelor.
  6. In his 60s he is still very popular in Hollywood. Many critics write that he gets better with age. Every year he appears in new films and TV shows. Among his recent screen works are the mini-series “The Undoing”. Although the series got contradictory reviews from both, critics and the audience, Hugh’s character Jonathan Fraser, the oncologist, got a mostly high appraisal. He portrayed the ambiguous Jonathan skillfully, making viewers believe him and suspect him simultaneously.

    The Piers Gaveston Society is definitely not an “acting club”: it’s a society for debauchery of all kinds. King Edward I was excessively fond of Gaveston (1st Earl of Cornwall) so to limit the scandal, Gaveston was sent into exile. Your writer needs to brush up on their 13th-14thC British history!
