‘ The days as a very well paid leading actor were suddenly over overnight, ‘says the actor in an interview with the Los Angeles Times
Hugh Grant, who is currently making a major career comeback with the success of HBO’s The Undoing, spoke about why he stopped playing for some time.
The British actor best known for starring charmingly faulty leads in romantic comedies like Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) and Notting Hill (1999) left acting after his 2007 film with Drew Barrymore, Music and Lyrics unofficial and briefly returned in 2009 for the popular book.
