Hugh Grant is just the tonic you need to watch this Friday.
Taking a break from acting for an extended period of time a few years ago, Hugh Grant returned to steal the limelight in the family sequel movie 'Paddington 2'. But in his latest interview with Seth Myers, the 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' actor admitted that his appearance in the movie wasn't so well-received by everyone.
Doing a round of interviews for his latest Sky series 'The Undoing' opposite Nicole Kidman, the subject of his role in 'Paddington 2' was discussed in great detail. Mostly due to the fact that even though the movie has a 100% Certified Fresh Tomatometer, his children still don't appreciate it.
He explains to Myers: "I set up a special screening for them. That takes a whole cinema, I have hundreds of children. I got them in there and they pretty much hated it.
"They kept whispering to me, 'Why are you in it so much?' I make them like it now. They have to watch it every night and tell me how good I am, otherwise, they don’t get fed."
Children can be so cruel. The 60-year-old previously admitted that it was probably his greatest acting role to date.
Here's part of his interview with late-night chat show host Seth Myers.
It's more bad news for poor Hugh, as it turns out his wife Anna Elisabet Eberstein wasn't a fan of his past collection of romantic movies such as 'Love Actually' or 'Notting Hill' either. Although he admitted that now she is "starting to get a taste for them".
And that's not all of the Hugh Grant goodness that we'll be getting this week either. The actor will also be on tonight's 'Graham Norton Show', where he'll be talking about his new Sky thriller.
