Hugh Grant Calls Bulls**t On 'Love Actually,' The Worst Film Ever Made

And revealed his most embarrassing scene
Comments

Love Actually hasn’t aged well, which is really saying something when you consider that it was creepy and bad to begin with.

The film begins with Hugh Grant lurking around Heathrow arrivals, talking about 9/11 (not the done thing at an airport, Hugh) and how “love is everywhere […] if you look for it”. His hopeful prologue is duly followed by 10 stories that prove it never existed in the first place.

And that doorstep board scene? The behavior of a true menace.

Anyway, Hugh Grant doesn’t know why Love Actually is so popular either.

"I don't know why Love Actually is still so popular.”

He was speaking to Bang Showbiz about the much-loved rom-com, which has become one of the most popular Christmas films in recent history.

"Everyone watches it at Christmas, which is nice.

"Do I remember anything from filming? 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."

"It wasn't easy for an Englishman in his 40s to do at seven in the morning, stone-cold sober."

Hugh Grant, you’ll remember, played a British Prime Minister who publicly stood up to a bullying, blowhard US president by going off on one about David Beckham.

Meh, anything's worth a try.
