Hugh Grant was born in London, England on September 9, 1960. He attended Oxford University until his first film, Privileged was released in 1982.
Years later, when his career was taking off, he was arrested for soliciting sex from a prostitute. Grant's career recovered from the incident, but his long-term relationship with actress/model Elizabeth Hurley ended as a result. Grant was recently involved with the British socialite Jemima Goldsmith Khan, though they split in 2007.
The 1994 film Four Weddings and a Funeral made Grant a hot commodity for romantic comedies, which led to a successful career in the genre. Grant has starred in films like Sense and Sensibility, Notting Hill and Two Weeks Notice.
Grant welcomed a daughter in October 2011.
