57-year-old actor Hugh Grant in a recent interview discussed his colleagues. Some of them he thinks is crazy, and some want to kill him.
The first discussion came Emma Thompson, which Hugh starred in the films “sense and sensibility” (Sense and Sensibility) and “love actually” (Love Actually). The actress received a compliment “genius”, but without the barbs, it would not be done. “She’s a little crazy. Every year it becomes more and more crazy,” says Grant.
His counterpart in the set of the film “Florence foster Jenkins” (Florence Foster Jenkins) Meryl Streep, Hugh was also called a genius, but she did mention about her bad vision. “She can’t see well, but refuses to wear contact lenses. This leads to the fact that when we shoot the scene, I can become a Denzel Washington.” says Hugh.
Grant also talked about Robert Downey Jr., who hated him at first sight. “He hates me. He just looked at me and I wanted to kill you,” says the actor.
But with Renee Zellweger all the way around. “Renee loves me and I love her. It is, of course, in the same category as Emma Thompson from the point of view of madness. But still she’s an amazing actress and person with a big heart. One day she sent me a large number of photos with naked women. I remember this because I received them before the flight to Marrakech, where the album was confiscated,” recalls the story of the Grant.
Speaking about mental health colleagues, Grant forgot to mention that he had a problem with that. So, the star of “Bridget Jones’s Diary” admitted that 2007 brought him many trials, including a nervous breakdown, which nearly ended the treatment in special institutions. “I came back from holiday in the Maldives and suddenly felt strange. I decided to distract myself and opened the newspaper to read about football. And suddenly my eyes flooded with tears… the Next three weeks I cried continuously. I couldn’t leave the house because completely lost the ability to control yourself. For example, I could go to a cafe to drink coffee and cry in response to the question of the waiter — what kind of milk I prefer… I only tried hypnosis and therapy, but everything was useless…” — said the actor. Fortunately, after some time, the state of his nerves was normalized by itself.
Recall that very soon Grant and his girlfriend Anna, Eberstein become parents. For an actor this kid will be the fifth, and 39-year-old Anna third. The couple already has two children: a five year old son and two year old daughter. Hugh also has two children from a previous relationship with Tinglan Hong.
