Hugh Grant Reveals The One Movie He Would Erase From His Career

When faced with the decision to name the movie he wished he could erase from his career or eat shepherd’s pie with worm mayonnaise, Hugh Grant had to think long and hard.

English actor and ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ co-star Chris Pine appeared on the March 29 episode of ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’ where he played a hilarious game of ‘Spill Your Guts or Fill Your’. . Bowels.”

If Grant, 62, didn’t name a movie he’d delete from his IMDB page, he’d have to eat the cake. The actor smiled and said that he would be “happy to destroy his resume online” because he is “specialized in being bad for decades.”

While Corden disagreed, Grant explained that it’s one thing for him to say his job sucks, “but I can’t shoot down the rest of the great guys who worked with me on a movie by saying it sucked.”

Despite her dilemma, the British star named a project: “The Lady and the Highwayman.”

The movie was a 1988 TV movie where he played Lord Lucius Vyne. According to the IMDB page, the synopsis reads: “Swashbuckling tale of romance, betrayal, jealousy, banditry, murder and court intrigue set in the 1660s, during King Charles II’s restoration to the English throne.”

“I am a boy of the road. I’m supposed to be sexy,” said Grant, who was 28 when the film was released. “Low budget, bad wig, bad hat. I look like Sheriff Dawg.

“When I’m tense, my voice goes up two octaves. Deputy Dawg would jump out of trees when a carriage passed by and say, ‘Get up and deliver!’” he added as the film’s poster appeared on the screen, apologizing to his “wonderful colleagues”.

Fans of the actor know that he directed some of the biggest romantic comedies, including “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill,” “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” “2 Weeks Notice” and “Love Really.”

In a 2019 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he quipped that he “was getting too old and ugly and fat to do it, so now I’ve done other things and have a little less self-loathing.”

The following year, Grant went on to explain why he decided to leave Hollywood and the rom-coms that made him a star.

“I developed a bad attitude around 2005, shortly after ‘Music and Lyrics,’” he told the Los Angeles Times in 2020 of his movie starring Drew Barrymore. “I had enough.”

When “Have you heard of the Morgans?” from 2009? with Sarah Jessica Parker it was a flop, I knew something was different.

“At that time it was not me who gave up on Hollywood. Hollywood gave up on me because I made a big turkey out of that movie that starred Sarah Jessica Parker,” she said. “Whether he wanted to or not after that, the days of being a highly paid leading man suddenly ended overnight.”

However, while promoting the drama series ‘The Undoing’ in 2020, Grant joked that he would love to do a sequel to ‘Notting Hill’, but it’s not what you think.

“I’d like to do a sequel to one of my own romantic comedies that shows what happened after those movies ended, to really prove what a horrible lie they all were, that it was a happy ending,” Grant said. “I’d like to get Julia and the horrible divorce that followed, with really expensive lawyers and children involved in heartbreak, tears, psychological scars forever.”
