Hugh Grant

From wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
hugh john mungo grant ( born 9 september 1960 ) 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 appearing in richard curtis’s 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. Since the 2000s, grant has expanded his oeuvre with critically acclaimed turns as a cad in bridget jones’s diary ( 2001 ), about a boy ( 2002 ), love actually ( 2003 ), and american dreamz ( 2006 ).
within the film industry, grant is cited as an anti-movie star who approaches his roles like a character actor, with the ability to make acting look 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. The entertainment media’s coverage of grant’s life off the big screen has often overshadowed his work as a thespian. He has been vocal about his disrespect for the profession of acting, his disdain towards the culture of celebrity, and hostility towards the media. In a career spanning 20 years, grant has repeatedly claimed that acting is not a true calling but just a job he fell into.
