Hugh Grant has named the film he would love to erase from his extensive catalog, describing the project as ‘poor’.
The 42-year-old has helmed some of the most popular films around, including love Actually, Paddington 2, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
During an appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden, he got candid about one that he didn’t really enjoy.
The Hollywood icon took part in a game of Spill Your Guts with the host, and his Dungeons & Dragons co-star, Chris Pine, and didn’t hold back.
At one point, he was tasked with eating ‘worm mayonnaise shepherd’s pie’ or naming the film he would remove from his IMDB page.
‘The thing is, I would happily shred my IMDB page, my CV, because I specialized in being bad for decades,’ he replied. ‘I got better…
‘As you know, as someone in the industry, it’s one thing for me to say I was bad but I can’t bring down the rest of the wonderful colleagues who worked with me on any film by saying it was bad.
‘That’s my dilemma.’
Chris and James weren’t satisfied with his procrastinating, and called for him to provide an answer or eat the meal.
Hugh eventually named the Lady and the Highwayman, the 1988 made for TV flick in which he starred as Lord Lucius Vyne.
‘I’m a highway man. I’m meant to be sexy,’ he described. ‘Low-budget, bad wig, bad hat. I look like Deputy Dawg.
‘When I’m tense, my voice goes up two octaves. Deputy Dawg would come leaping out of trees when a carriage would come past and go, “Stand and deliver!”
After the poster flashed up, the Bafta-winner insisted: ‘I apologize to all of my wonderful colleagues on it.’
Hugh recently made headlines when he revealed his favorite movie as the Sound of Music in a chat with Wired, admitting that it is a controversial choice at home.
‘It’s a difficult situation,’ he confessed. ‘I’m married to a Swedish woman who comes from the north of Sweden where men are really men, they’re so manly they hardly speak and they chop wood.
‘What they don’t do is watch The Sound of Music in the afternoons and sing along with the mother superior when she sings Climb Every Mountain.
