Hugh Grant says he ‘can’t even remember’ what happens in his 2003 holiday rom-com Love Actually

Hugh Grant says he ‘can’t even remember’ what happens in his iconic 2003 rom-com Love Actually: ‘How do I end up?’

While Love Actually may go down as one of the most iconic Christmas-themed romantic comedies in history, Hugh Grant says he ‘can’t even remember what happens in the film.’ 

In a Thursday interview with Digital Spy, the 60-year-old British-born heartthrob confessed that the details of the film are a bit fuzzy when asked about the possibility of a sequel.

Trying to recover playfully, Grant asked, ‘How do I end up?’ while looking for guidance about the plot’s ending.

Richard Curtis’ 2003 holiday classic features a star-studded lineup including Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Colin Firth and Alan Rickman.  

The movie traces nine intertwined love stories, with Grant starring as a Prime Minister who falls for a young staffer played by Martine McCutcheon. 

Though many viewers could never forget the movie or Grant’s hilariously memorable dance scene, he said he has little recollection of the events.

‘It’s so long since I’ve seen it. You’d have to remind me. How do I end up?’, he laughed. 

Though the movie did release a Love Actually 2 titled, Red Nose Day Actually, the film was only a partial sequel to support Red Nose Day which raises money for children in poverty. 

Asked about a full-blown follow up to the original film, Grant admitted, ‘I don’t know. I’ve never thought about that…’

In a 2003 interview about the movie he said, ‘It was a really well-written film, there are few of those around,’ which prompted him to sign on after working with Curtis on Four Weddings And A Funeral and Notting Hill. 

He continued to say that the idea for the dancing scene caused a ‘big fight,’ between him and Curtis as he did not want to dance at all. 

Echoing those same sentiments in a 2019 interview, Grant said ‘I thought, “That’s going to be excruciating,” and it has the power to be the most excruciating scene ever committed to celluloid.’
