Hugh Grant (born 10 September 1960) is a British actor and film producer. He has received a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA and an Honorary Cesar. His movies have also earned more than $2.4 billion from 25 theatrical releases worldwide.
Grant achieved international stardom after appearing in Richard Curtis’ 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. In recent years, Grant has expanded his oeuvre with critically acclaimed turns as a cad in Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001), About A Boy (2002), and American Dreamz (2006).
