With his roles in romantic comedies, Hugh Grant became a favorite of all mothers-in-law. But not only he looks self-ironically at his image. Even his wife has little to appreciate his dachshund past.
Fans all over the world languish when they see Hugh Grant in romantic comedies such as “Notting Hill”, “Bridget Jones – Chocolate for Breakfast” or “A Chef to Fall in Love with”. His wife Anna Eberstein, with whom he has been married since 2018 and has three children together, cannot do much with her husband’s comedies, as he now revealed on the US show “Late Night with Seth Meyers”.
“My wife is the man in our house. She likes violent films, gangster films while I sit there and watch ‘Roman Holiday’, ‘Sound of Music’ or something like that,” explains the British actor in the video interview. Grant explains, “That’s why she never liked the movies I made in the past.”
Rolle in “The Undoing”
But that has changed a bit in the meantime. “Now she’s got a taste for it and she liked the show, I have to say,” says Grant. The actor speaks of the HBO format “The Undoing”. She doesn’t particularly like him, but Grant’s colleague Ismael Cruz Córdova. She almost fell in love with the role of actor – and that of Édgar Ramírez.
The miniseries “The Undoing” has six episodes and has been on HBO since the end of October. In addition to Grant, Nicole Kidman can be seen in a leading role in the mystery thriller format.
Continuation of the other kind
Grant was in a relationship with his colleague Liz Hurley for many years. After the turn of the millennium, the relationship broke up. Later he had changing affairs. So he had two children with the Chinese Tinglan Hong before he tied himself to Eberstein and married her.
The British actor looks back on his previous roles with great self-deprecation. For example, he recently joked about Notting Hill, saying that films like this one conveyed “terrible lies”. He would like a sequel to show what later happened to him and his film love, portrayed by Julia Roberts – an “ugly divorce, with really expensive lawyers, children who are involved in a real tug-of-war between their parents and everyone Lots of tears. All of them psychologically scarred forever. “
