Martine McCutcheon Hopes She And Hugh Grant Are Still Together In 'Love Actually' Mini-Sequel


Martine McCutcheon Hugh Grant Richard Curtis Love Actually

Ahead of the highly anticipated Love Actually mini-sequel that’s currently being filmed for Comic Relief, one of the movie’s stars, Martine McCutcheon, has excitedly teased a few details about her character Natalie and her romance with The Prime Minister, played by Hugh Grant.

Speaking on daytime magazine show ‘Loose Women’ on Wednesday (February 22nd), the 40 year old actress said that she and Grant would definitely both be starring in the project – but she wasn’t quite sure whether their characters would still be together, having not yet seen a script.

“I’m hoping me and Hugh are still together because we’re filming together. I haven’t been sent a script, I’ve just been in wardrobe,” she told the hosts.

Critics Welcome Back Renee Zellweger Warmly In 'Bridget Jones's Baby'


Renee Zellweger Colin Firth Patrick Dempsey Hugh Grant

Bridget Jones’s Baby has been praised by critics following its premiere on Monday, with most agreeing it was a welcome return to form for Renee Zellweger’s character. It’s been 12 years since we last saw Bridget on our screens and this time she’s approaching 40, pregnant and trying to work out who the baby’s father is.

Writing in The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw told fans the new film was better than Bridget’s last outing, 2004’s The Edge of Reason. He describes the film as “something resembling a likeable, good-natured one-off TV holiday special.”

Hugh Grant Opens Up About His "Madness" In 2007


Hugh Grant

British actor Hugh Grant has opened up about a dark period in his life when he “went mad” in 2007, apparently suffering a mental breakdown.

The 55 year old star was a guest on James Corden’s ‘The Late Late Show’ on Thursday (August 4th), and revealed that his disintegration happened around the time he holidayed in the Maldives. While out there, Grant said he had “about 30 massages a day” because of extreme boredom. “I went mad in 2007. I got massaged into madness!”

But it was only while he was travelling home that he realised that something else was wrong, saying that he broke down into tears on the plane for no reason.

Florence Foster Jenkins Review

Excellent

Although this comedy-drama seems to have been written specifically to give Meryl Streep a chance to dress up and put on a silly show, it's actually all true. And it's hugely entertaining, generating gut-wrenching laughter and some sharply resonant emotions too. It's also a subtle exploration of pop culture, most notably privileged artists and the fact that there's more to stardom than just talent.

Streep shines as Florence, a socialite who hosts lavish parties in 1944 New York with her husband St Clair (Hugh Grant). Both of them are frustrated artists: Florence sees herself as an opera diva, while St Clair never quite made it as an actor. So at her parties, Florence puts on performances for her friends, oblivious to the fact that she's riotously off-key, while St Clair plays the doting husband, protecting her from criticism and hiring talented young pianist Cosme McMoon (Simon Helberg) as her accompanist. Florence doesn't really mind that St Clair has a woman (Rebecca Ferguson) on the side. But when she books Carnegie Hall to perform a concert for troops returning from Europe, St Clair realises that he can't protect her from a real audience.

Writer Nicholas Martin and director Stephen Frears construct the story beautifully, building up to reveal Florence's voice in a painfully hilarious sequence that's expertly played by Streep, Grant and Helberg. Streep's enjoyment of the role is infectious, and she makes Florence sympathetic by letting us see her yearning to sing. She imagines she sounds like her operatic idols, so can't hear the strangled notes coming from her mouth. And those who don't applaud are laughing so heartily that surely they're just as entertained. Streep's performance soars through the performance scenes, but is just as powerful in the comedy and at moments when Florence is vulnerable and nervous.

Hugh Grant Reportedly Clashes With Neighbour Over Dog


Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant has reportedly clashed with his neighbour, after claiming the man’s dog urinated outside his £3million London home. According to The Sun, the 55-year-old actor ranted at the dog owner, telling him his dog should relieve himself ‘in the gutter’.

Hugh GrantHugh Grant reportedly ranted at a neighbour over his dog.

Speaking to The Sun, Justin O’Brien said Grant told him he was sick and tired of his miniature schnauzer, named Buddy, ‘s*** and p***” all over his street.’ However O’Brien claims Buddy aimed at the pavement rather than towards Grant’s plush Chelsea property.

Florence Foster Jenkins Trailer


The shows Florence Foster Jenkins put on were true spectacles but there were only a modest few who were privileged enough to witness them. The American socialite wasn't exactly given a natural gift to sing, but that wasn't going to put her off her ambition to appear on the same stages as some of the best operatic voices of her time. 

Her ever-loving second husband was always on her side to give her the support to fulfil said dream. 

In recent years Meryl Streep has appears in many films including Ricki and the Flash, Into the Woods and Mama Mia which all include musical scenes which she must showcase her vocal abilities, now she must take on a completely different approach in order to sufficiently mimic Foster Florence Jenkins' unique voice. 

Florence Foster Jenkins Teaser Trailer


Florence Foster Jenkins was never what you might call a 'naturally' talented opera singer, however she had a remarkable talent for entertaining crowds. Most opera singers are trained from a young age but without her father's help (which he refused) Florence was unable to raise the funds to support her dream. 

After her father's death, Florence found herself heir to enough money to begin a quest to fulfil her dream. She set up her own club and became a member of many social groups. Her live shows became renowned but she would never make her appearances public. Each of her shows had a strict guest list, with Florence deciding exactly who would get the tickets. 

With the help of her husband St. Clair Bayfield, in 1944 at the age of 76, Florence finally decided that it was time to take up a new challenge and perform to her biggest crowd to date at Carnegie Hall.

Hugh Grant Says BFI Fellowship Win Was 'A Lovely Surprise'

"It's hard on your new relationship when you're really good friends with the exes," Warne said. "Elizabeth was really good friends with Hugh, who is like her best friend. When I used to go back to Australia, if she wasn't leaving London, he'd come and spend the weekend at the house.”

Hugh Grant Becomes A Father For The Fourth Time

Hugh Grant has become a father for the fourth time, it has been reported. The British screen actor, famous for his roles in romantic comedies, has welcomed a daughter with his current partner Anna Eberstein.

Swedish regional newspaper Sundsvall Tinding reported on Tuesday afternoon (December 22nd) that the 55 year actor and his 37 year old partner welcomed the baby girl last Wednesday (December 16th). The pair previously became parents to a son, John Mungo, three years ago.

'The Rewrite': Hurray, Hugh Grant Is Still Funny


Hugh Grant Marc Lawrence

It seemed like a reasonable idea to Reteam Hugh Grant and Marc Lawrence, who worked so successfully together on Two Weeks' Notice and Music & Lyrics. Their latest collaboration, The Rewrite, follows similar tropes explored in the Drew Barrymore movie and for the most part, it works really well.

Hugh GrantHugh Grant in 'The Rewrite'

Grant plays screenwriter Keith Michaels, a Golden Globe winner with a hit movie to is name, a beautiful wife and, of course, an inexhaustible supply of charm. However, fast-forward fifteen years and Keith is divorced, broke and hasn't written a hit movie in years. When his agent lands him a job teaching screenwriting in a sleepy town in Binghampton, Keith dedicates more time to writing his new script, before meeting a single mum working two jobs to earn her degree.

Continue reading: 'The Rewrite': Hurray, Hugh Grant Is Still Funny

The Rewrite Trailer


Keith Michaels once had it all; recognition and money from an award-winning screenplay and an attractive wife to share it with. However, now he's nearing middle-age and he no longer seems to have any of it. Sure, his famed movie is still a hit, but he's struggling to find any more work and now that he's sadly divorced, the only support he has is from his agent. Desperate to make ends meet, the agent offers him last resort; there's a teaching post vacancy at a small town university in Binghamton, available to teachers in screenwriting. With a Golden Globe hit under his belt, he's a sure-fire candidate for the job - but it's the last thing he wants to do. However, he soon finds the silver lining in that a string of attractive young students have applied to enrol on his course and he uses the opportunity to revel amongst young women, while doing as little work as possible. When he meets mature student Holly though, he's inspired to turn his spiralling life back around.

Helen Fielding To Colin Firth: "Are You Sitting Down? Yeah...Darcy's Dead"


Helen Fielding Colin Firth Hugh Grant

Helen Fielding's decision to kill of major character Mark Darcy in the latest instalment of the Bridget Jones series Mad About the Boy was met with disdain and disappointment from fans.

An extended excerpt in the Sunday Times Magazine revealed that Jones was now a windowed mother of two, despite getting engaged to Darcy in the second book, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.

Hugh Grant Baby No.2 Confirmed: Felix Was Born December 29, 2012


Hugh Grant

Remember when Hugh Grant had a baby with a woman that he’d had a brief affair with, but was seemingly no longer dating? Well, he’s gone and done it again. Hugh Grant and Tinglan Hong have now had a second baby together, providing a brother – they’ve named him Felix Chang Hong Grant – to Tabitha Xaio Hong Grant, who was born 17 months ago.

Felix was born on December 29, 2013 at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, MSN’s Celebrity Fix reports. Hugh announced the news via Twitter, seemingly wishing to put the minds of prying journalists at rest, despite having kept the news under wraps until now. “In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum,” he tweeted. He also added “And to be crystal clear. I am the Daddy.”

The situation surrounding the arrival of Hugh’s first child, Tabitha was a murky one, with Hugh derided when his publicist described his relationship with Tinglan as “fleeting.” He was simply describing the relationship as he saw it, he insists. “I've been given a hard time for using those words,” he said, “which is ironic seeing as it's actually the truth, but that doesn’t seem to be very popular.” He went on to explain “I was protecting her reputation – I didn't want her to appear to be a jilted girlfriend," he revealed. “I was protecting mine — I didn’t want it to seem that I was a monster who ran away from his girlfriend."

Hugh Grant Baby A “Happy Surprise”, Literally!


Hugh Grant

The About a Boy actor, Hugh Grant, has been Tweeting about a boy recently. He took to the social networking to express his delight at the birth of Felix Chang.

“In answer to some journos. Am thrilled my daughter now has a brother. Adore them both to an uncool degree. They have a fab mum,” Grant posted before tweeting, “And to be crystal clear. I am the Daddy.” Well that’s crystal clear then. Talking to Ellen DeGeneres last April, Grant opened up on his first child, Tabitha Xaio Xi Hong Grant. “Everyone was right all these years, saying: “Hugh, why don’t you have some children? It changes your life.” Now that I have a child, it is life-changing. I recommend it. Get some,” he explained to the talk show host. “I can’t pretend it wasn’t a little bit of a surprise. But it’s a very nice surprise. In fact, the baby’s name in Chinese, because the mother’s is Chinese, means ‘happy surprise’.” Talking of name meanings, the latest sprog’s full name is Felix Chang Hong Grant; Felix is the Latin word for lucky while Chang in Chinese means long-lasting.

Grant wasn’t particularly keen to release the news yet, but sensed he might have to when he received a message of congratulations from The Daily Mail. As of yet, it is unknown whether Grant and Tinglan Hong – the mother to his children, are actually in a relationship or not.

Hacked Off Hugh Grant Settles News Of The World Hacking Suit


Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant has been one of the most vocal celebrities in relation to the phone hacking scandal that has rocked the British press over the past couple of years. Since the publication of the Leveson Report a couple of weeks ago, a compensation sum has finally been settled for Grant, which will be paid by News International after his claim against the News of the World, reports the Guardian. 

The exact amount has remained undisclosed but has been described as 'substantial', which comes as no surprise really. Grant's solicitor, Mark Thomson made a statement about what his client plans on doing with the money: "News Group Newspapers have agreed to pay him a substantial sum by way of damages." Thomson said, "He has instructed us to donate all of his damages plus an additional payment from him to the Hacked Off Campaign for a free and accountable media.  This will be done as soon as payment is received." 

The statement, and consequently the sum, will be made public in the new year, and Grant's claim is only one of 178 against the company. The mother of Grant's daughter is also embroiled in a court case at the moment, having sued Associated Newspapers for the 'misuse of private information', amongst other allegations. Hugh's involvement with the Leveson Inquiry manifested itself in a campaign titled 'Hacked Off Hugh'. 

Hugh Grant Apologises To Jon Stewart For Bad Behaviour


Hugh Grant Jon Stewart

To contact Hugh Grant via Twitter the name he's chosen for himself is @HackedOffHugh. Despite that being a reference to his recent work in the Leveson Report, it's more than apt for the accusations levied towards him by Jon Stewart.

The Daily Show host, in an informal interview with his friend and colleague Stephen Colbert, during a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival, spoke about his experience with Grant when he came on The Daily Show for an interview: "He's giving everyone s*** the whole time, and he's a big pain in the a** ... And we've had dictators on the show." Said Stewart, quoted by NY Daily News. Back then, in 2009, Grant was publicising the terrible movie Did You Hear About the Morgans? and criticised a clip of the film used in the show. "What is that clip? It's a terrible clip," Grant said. "Well, then make a better f***ing movie," Stewart acerbically replied.

Since hearing about Stewart's opinion of him, Grant has used his twitter account, normally reserved for information and discourse about the hacking inquiry, and used the platform to apologize for his behaviour:

Jon Stewart Calls Hugh Grant "Worst Guest Ever" (Including Dictators)


Jon Stewart Hugh Grant

Jon Stewart - the U.S. host of The Daily Show - has named Hugh Grant his least favourite guest on the programme, following his appearance in 2009. The British actor, known for his romantic-comedies, was described as a "big pain in the ass" by Stewart, who says he is no longer welcome on the show.

Speaking during a Q&A last week, Stewart laid into the Love Actually star, naming him as his least favourite guest, adding, "And we've had dictators on the show." The actor appeared on The Daily Show while promoting his poorly received comedy Did You Hear About The Morgans? though reportedly spent much of his time complaining to staff and saying he had better places to be. He also complained about the clip that was shown to promote the film, though Stewart responded, "Well, then make a better f***ing movie." Though Stewart's remarks come as no real surprise, the pair are both prominent critics of the media, with Grant taking an active role in the campaign for tighter regulation of the British press in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal. Stewart almost quit The Daily Show in 1999, saying, "What I did not realize is, a lot of the people who worked there were assholes."

The Emmy winner replaced original host Craig Kilborn, immediately shifting the tone to sharply satirical. 

Piers Morgan Tells Charlotte Church About Phone Hacking, Years Before Denying Any Knowledge


Piers Morgan Charlotte Church Hugh Grant

An interview clip featuring Piers Morgan telling Charlotte Church about the possibilities of phone hacking in the media in 2003 is set to be aired on Channel 4 in a new documentary.

The former editor of tabloids The Sun, Daily Mirror and the now defunct News of the World has repeatedly denied having any knowledge that phone hacking went on since it emerged that the Rupert Murdoch owned newspapers had journalists using illegal techniques to listen to voicemails on celebrities' phones and even those of victims of crime. In fact, at the Leveson inquiry, he swore under oath several times that he 'had no reason or knowledge to believe it was going on'. In spite of this, footage has emerged of the controversial TV personality discussing the practise with the then 17-year-old popstar Charlotte Church in 2003. 'When [mobile phones] first came out journalists found out that if a celebrity hadn't changed their pin code. You can access their voicemails by typing in a number', he said. 'Now, are you really telling me that journalists aren't going to do that? If they know that they can ring up Charlotte Church's mobile phone, listen to all her messages?'

The discussion took place in an interview after she was invited to address the Oxford Union during which she campaigned for a privacy law for celebrities under 18 years of age. It will soon be broadcast on the Channel 4 documentary 'Taking on the Tabloids' which will feature Hugh Grant who has been in a string of legal battles with the tabloids following the phone hacking scandal. 

Cloud Atlas Flops On Opening Weekend At Box Office


Lilly Wachowski Tom Hanks Halle Berry Jim Broadbent Hugh Grant Hugo Weaving

Cloud Atlas has flopped into third place in the US Box Office after a dreary weekend saw the film, which many thought would do well commercially, take in less than Hotel Transylvania and chart topper Argo in US markets.

The film, an adaptation of the David Mitchell novel of the same name, was brought to the screen by Matrix masterminds Andy and Lana Wachowski and Run Lola Run director Tom Tykwer, with many foreseeing the time-jumping epic to make a huge impact at the box office. Instead the film only brought in a meagre $9.4 million over its opening weekend, a long way from the predicted $100 million it had budgeted for.

The film, which stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugh Grant and Hugo Weaving among others, follows the inter-twining lives of a host of different people throughout time, following the implications of actions made in past lives and how the soul lives on through time. It has so far split opinion right down the middle, with some marvelling and the ground breaking spectacle and story telling of the film, whilst other have smeared it for being overly ambitious.

Report From Cloud Atlas Premiere: 172 Minutes Of Essential Viewing


Tom Hanks Halle Berry Lilly Wachowski Hugh Grant Hugo Weaving

Cloud Atlas, starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugo Weaving is released in US cinemas on October 26, 2012.

The main message being beamed back from the movie’s premiere is: make sure you go to the toilet before you take your seat. Lana Wachowski, Andy Wachowski and Tom Twkyer’s adaptation of David Mitchell’s novel clocks in at a staggering 2 hours and 52 minutes long but according to LA Times, the movie is all killer and no filler, meaning that you wont want to leave your seat for any of those 172 minutes.

If you do decide to leave your seat, it seems, you do so “at your own peril, running the risk of missing of ... oh ... Hugh Grant licking blood off a knife as a cannibal or Hugo Weaving making a grand entrance as a female nurse who'd make Louise Fletcher's "Cuckoo's Nest" administrator cower.” As the narrative skips about, rejecting all notion of linear storytelling, it looks to be a case of ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ when it comes to keeping up with the interwoven stories.’

Music And Lyrics Review


Good
It's not a complaint when I say that Hugh Grant seems to play the same role over and over these days. It never gets old to watch him play a complete bastard who is also loveable and endearing in his utter self-absorption. It may eventually get tiresome to see the spiky-haired acerbic bloke woo the girl, but it hasn't yet -- and it is certainly an improvement over his earlier, sappy-and-awkward romantic stylings.

In Music and Lyrics, Grant's playing Alex Fletcher, former frontman of a hilariously '80s band called Pop and current contented has-been. While living exclusively in the land of former glory does allow Alex to wallow in adoration without really having to do anything whatsoever, his bottom-of-the-barrel tour dates are drying up and the money is running out. He gets the chance to revive his career when a vapid pop superstar gives him four days to write her a hit song.

Nine Months Review


Good
Nine Months has all the makings of an incredible disaster. First, its star (Hugh Grant) is arrested for lewd conduct. Second, it's a remake of a French film (Neuf Mois), always a huge negative. Finally, it's a comedy decidedly for adults which is directed by the infantile Chris Columbus, the man who brought us the Home Alone franchise and Mrs. Doubtfire.

Imagine my shock; Nine Months is pretty good.

Notting Hill Review


Excellent
Julia Roberts is Julia Roberts - almost - in Notting Hill, a well-crafted romantic comedy from the geniuses behind Four Weddings and a Funeral.

The deceptively simple plot begins when uber-famous film star Anna Scott (Roberts) winds up in William's (Grant) book shop on Notting Hill, something of a British cross between a pre-Disney Times Square and a Moroccan street market. After William accidentally dumps orange juice down Anna's front, an on-again, off-again, on-again, off-again, on-again love affair blossoms.

Love Actually Review


Very Good
I can only presume that the British calendar is so uniquely screwy that it allows for a Christmas movie to open a week after Halloween. Or maybe Love Actually is just in a universe of its own... one in which the prime minister is inaugurated in November and where an adverb can be used to modify a noun.

But a little oddness is forgivable: Directing a movie is a strange place for Richard Curtis, who's written umpteen Brit-friendly movies and TV shows over the years but hasn't directed one, until now.

Mickey Blue Eyes Review


Excellent
Hugh Grant hit paydirt once this summer, in Notting Hill. Can he do it again if you take away Julia Roberts? And throw in an unlikely comedy about murderous gangsters, an auction house, and a botched wedding?

Yes he can! Mickey Blue Eyes, against all odds, is nothing short of fall-down funny - on par with Notting Hill, South Park, and Austin Powers 2 as one of the best comedies of the summer.

Four Weddings And A Funeral Review


Excellent
In the spring of 1994, Four Weddings and a Funeral was an international hit, earning an Oscar nomination for Best Picture and turning Hugh Grant into a star. It was the My Big Fat Greek Wedding of its day. There's just one tiny difference. Four Weddings and a Funeral is a far superior movie in just about every way, a funny and stirring look at stumbling toward love and the effect of friendship.

And, there's not a bottle of Windex anywhere to be found.

Mickey Blue Eyes Review


Zero

"Mickey Blue Eyes" is one of those movies that wouldn't last 20 minutes if the main character wasn't a certifiable moron.

A comedy of the uncomfortable, it's predicated on Hugh Grant, playing an tentative, English, auction house proprietor in New York, allowing himself to become embroiled in the mob when he unknowingly proposes to a mafia princess (Jeanne Tripplehorn).

She declines, crying her eyes out and explaining her background and the family she's tried to put behind her. Romantically, he says it doesn't matter. She exacts one promise from him: That he won't agree to do any favors for her family and won't accept any, either. "That's how they get you," she says. "Then you'll be one of them."
