Love Actually Was A Family Affair For Grant
HUGH GRANT got more than he bargained for after accepting the lead role in LOVE ACTUALLY - he found out he was related to child actor THOMAS SANGSTER.
The actor, 47, was unaware of the family ties with the 17-year-old actor - until Sangster informed him on the set of the romantic comedy.
Sangster explains, "I remember thinking : 'That's that guy from Notting Hill.'
"That guy from Notting Hill was Hugh Grant, who turned out to be a cousin in sorts. His grandmother and my great-grandmother are sisters. He didn't know.
"I said: 'Apparently, you are my uncle or my cousin or something.' Then he kind of remembered my mum and uncle. So for the rest of the shoot he went round saying: 'Hello cousin' That felt quite cool."
