Many actors will argue that their best work is often the stuff that nobody picks up on, or a scene that was cut from a movie altogether.
Yet, for Hugh Grant, he's pretty clear on what his best movie is - and it's not 'Four Weddings And A Funeral', and it's certainly not 'Micky Blue Eyes' or even the likes of 'The Remains of the Day'. No, for Hugh Grant, his best work was in 'Paddington 2'.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Grant explained his reasons. "I was presenting I think at the Golden Globes, and they do that thing when you walk out, and they say, ‘From the forthcoming 'Paddington 2', Hugh Grant.’ And someone showed me Twitter afterwards, and it was... people were full of derision."
"Christ, has it come to that. Poor old Hugh. 'Paddington 2'. Sequel to a kids film.’ It’s particularly annoying in the case of 'Paddington 2', because I genuinely believe it may be the best film I’ve ever been in," Grant said. In fairness, he's not wrong. 'Paddington 2' is a cracking kids movie, and it's easily one of the most entertaining movies in his lengthy career.
Not only that, the movie itself is one of only a handful that has received a perfect 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes and saw Grant receive a BAFTA nomination for Best Supporting Actor. It also won out in many film critic awards as well, if that doesn't mean anything either.
So, yes, he's dead right - 'Paddington 2' is his best movie. Need proof? Take a look at this.
