Hugh Grant confessed he can’t even remember what happens in the film. It’s so long since he’d seen it, admitted the actor, 60, on Thursday, January 14. He told the interviewer to remind him, how did he end up?
In the film, the Undoing star portrayed David, the Prime Minister, who falls in love with a junior member of his staff, Natalie, played by Martine McCutcheon. One of the most famous scenes from the movie, which also stars Colin Firth, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Andrew Lincoln and more, includes Hugh Grant’s character doing quite the dance number.
While it’s very enjoyable to watch, the Golden Globe winner didn’t love making it. Hugh Grant thought that that was going to be excruciating, and it has the power to be the most excruciating scene ever committed to celluloid, he revealed during Hugh Grant: A Life on Screen in 2019.
Imagine you’re a grumpy 40-year-old Englishman, it’s 7 o’clock in the morning and you’re stone-cold sober… it was absolute hell, Hugh Grant confessed. The year before, he added that the scene doesn’t make any sense. The director admitted the actor was grumpy doing the scene.
