Hugh Grant talks "excruciating" Love Actually scene and not understanding the film's popularity
Love Actually - USA Scene2017
The holiday season holds a lot of constants within it. Between last minute gift shopping, scurrying back and forth to visit friends and family, and indulging in all the recipes and traditions you can get your hands on, there's hardly time to take a breath. But there's one thing you definitely should carve out time for, no matter what else is happening in your life this winter, is weeping to the most underrated Christmas album of all time : the Love, Actually soundtrack. Its many storylines offer all the talking points you need on romance, the cast is about as star-studded as it can get, and its unapologetic cheesiness is an easy target for people looking to poke fun. The soundtrack, much like the film, is a cup of hot chocolate on a rainy day: comforting, inviting, and invoking the same warm fuzzies you might get when looking at a newly decorated tree or snuggling in front of a fire with your special someone. And perhaps most importantly, the songs will remind you of pieces of your own life, and everything that's gotten you from one holiday season to the next.
The year-old Brit starred as the Prime Minister in Richard Curtis's perennial festive favourite, but to be fair, his character has a number of embarrassing scenes. MSN recently asked Grant if he remembered anything from the Love Actually shoot, to which he responded: "I mean, there was the horror of that scene where I had to dance around. I suspect that was the most excruciating scene ever committed. He also admitted that he doesn't "know why Love Actually is still so popular". Hmmm, let's see, maybe because of the movie's undeniable, genius charm? You've got to love Colin Frissell's sexual voyage into the American Dream as well. Elsewhere, actress Martine McCutcheon — who played Grant's love interest Natalie in the film — has weighed in on the possibility of a sequel.
Considering Love Actually is supposed to be a movie about love , it actually contains a whole lot of heartbreak. Well for the humble viewer it does, anyway. We've rounded up the 10 of the most wobbly moments in our favourite festive film, so you can get all the tears out the way and feel relatively emotionally stable when you watch it all the way through. Okay, we don't really associate the character of Colin with actual heartbreak in this film: he ends up having a bloody great time picking up all the honeyz in America. But our heart does break for the poor caterer who has to sit through his unknowing descriptions of her food as "dodgy" and "looking and tasting like a dead baby's finger". Quit while you're ahead, Colin. There's lots of these.
From Colin Firth's proposal to "To me, you are perfect". When it comes to holiday movies that will rip your heart out, tear it into a thousand pieces, then put it back together and somehow leave you with a restored faith in humanity, Love Actually is one of the best. Read it, re-watch Love Actually for the thousandth time, happy cry, then thank us. It was humongous, so there was no choice but to find a hat to cover it — because there was no lighting or makeup that was going to cover it. Love Actually scriptwriter Emma Freud answered fan questions on Twitter and it took our heartbreak to the next level. Olivia Olson, the girl who played the crazy-talented Joanna, got record deal offers after the movie. I might have been a has-been by now instead of still trying to build up my career.
Prime Minister High Grant's relationship with Natalie is many people's favourite story line in Love Actually, but there's a big problem in the scene where they first meet. For many the best tale is Prime Minister Hugh Grant's romance with Natalie, as we watch their romance blossom behind the doors of Number 10 Downing Street. But eagle-eyed fans have noticed a glaring error in the scene where they first meet, and it has completely ruined it for them. Think back to when we see Natalie being introduced to her new boss. Ignore her rather embarrassing and completely unprofessional first few sentences, and concentrate on Hugh Grant's tie. But in other shots the tie appears to magically change to a different pattern when the shot changes between different angles.
