I had a friend pick on Hugh Grant today. Ok... maybe he was arrested for lewd conduct after cops found him with Divine Brown, a prostitute, in his car. He pleaded no contest and got a $1,180 fine and two years' probation in 1995. But come on Hugh has long wanted to make a film about his grandfather's real life escape from a prisoner of war camp during WWII. How sweet is that?
He does have a dark side in abundance. Quotes: "I don't particularly like babies. I don't mind them for about four minutes. That's my max. After that I can't quite see what everyone's fussing about."
"I could do with more mobbing, Particularly from women. I'd like to be treated like Ricky Martin."
Ok... so maybe he was worth picking on. ;) Good call, friend.
But confession time... I do tend to like the movies he is in. I blame it on my being a complete anglopile, though. And if the question arrises... I like Colin Firth better.
