BIOGRAPHY OF HUGH GRANT
Hugh John Mungo Grant was born in September of 1960 to London, Hammersmith neighborhood, from mother to public school teacher and father to carpet dealer and career ex-soldier. From 1969 to 1978 he attended Latymer Upper School private school, then won one scholarship for Oxford, where he begins acting regularly on stage and even in his first film, a 1982 university production titled Privilege and directed by Michael Hoffman is John Schlesinger. He is a convinced rugby and football player. In this period he founded a comic trio together with two other colleagues, The Jockeys of Norfolk, which slightly increases its popularity at home.
The cinematic launch takes place with Maurice (1987) by James Ivory, adaptation of the novel of the same name by EM Forster: plays with James Wilby this story of homosexual love in the early twentieth century, which guarantees both one Volpi Cup ex-aequo in Venice. In the same year he meets what will be his half until 2000, the model Elizabeth Hurley, on the set of Rowing in the wind (1988), where is Lord Byron. His acting activity continues for years to come, but the feeling is that Maurice wasn’t enough to launch it. Not even the gloomy can do it Gall Moon (1992) by Roman Polanski, where is an English tourist seduced by Emmanuelle Seigner.
The real turning point, which elevates him among the stars beyond auteur cinema, is the well-known comedy Four weddings and a funeral (1994) of Mike Newell, written by Richard Curtis. Will win for this one BAFTA it’s a Golden Globe as best actor, and the film will guarantee him a creative bond with Curtis, with whom he will repeat this success later with the famous Notting Hill (1999, another Golden Globe nomination) and in the choral Love Actually (2003, where he performs a historic clumsy dance as a sarcastic Prime Minister). But first there is a failed attempt to settle in Hollywood: not just comedy Nine Months and the thriller Extreme Measures they don’t work, but just during the promotion of the first one, in the summer of 1995, it comes arrested for obscene acts in Los Angeles, while in the car with the prostitute Divine Brown. Since it has not shed its strong British identity in the meantime, with typical works Reason and sentiment (1995), adapted from Emma Thompson, will prefer to gravitate to roles with a European flavor.
The huge success of Bridget Jones’s diary (2001) and What a mess, Bridget Jones! (2004), where he plays the over-the-top seducer Daniel Cleaver, keep it afloat just enough for it to cross its last Golden Globe nominations in the fun About a Boy (2002) of Chris Weitz is Paul Weitz. Shortly after, in 2004, her love life restarts with different relationships: the heiress Jemima Khan, left in 2007, then two alternate ties (and four children, also of alternating mothers) with the Chinese Tinglan Hong and the Swedish Anna Eberstein. With the latter he should still be, in 2016.
The director / screenwriter who has nevertheless really suspended Hugh Grant in a role substantially always the same and almost as a character actor, in sentimental comedies with formula, it was Marc Lawrence. In fact, he directed it in Two Weeks Notice (2002), Write me a song (2007), What happened to the Morgans? (2009) and Professor for love (2014), respectively alongside Sandra Bullock, Drew Barrymore, Sarah Jessica Parker is Marisa Tomei.
Beyond acting, Grant managed to cause quite a stir in 2011 with an internet article titled “The Bugger, Bugged“on the New Statesman site: this is a piece in which he transcribes his hidden recording to a paparazzo, which admits the practice of bedbugs to spy on celebrities; Hugh’s scoop has also taken a heavy political turn.
2016 sees him interact with Meryl Streep in comedy Florence, directed by Stephen Frears.
