Hugh Grant talks “excruciating” Love Actually scene and why he doesn’t know why the film is so popular –

Rom-com God Hugh Grant has revealed the “excruciating” part of filming Love Actually.

The 58-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.

Any guesses as to which scene he could be referencing here?

Yep, you probably worked it out quite quickly.

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.

“It wasn’t easy for an Englishman in his 40s to do at 7 in the morning, stone-cold sober.”

Rather you than us, Hugh!

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.

“Of course as a jobbing actress I would love to do it, I’d love to be with that amazing cast again,” she said.

“But I think he kind of did it with the Comic Relief and the film together, that was Richard Curtis’s dream come true I think. I can’t speak for him, but I think.”

Sorry guys, looks like this one’s a pipe dream.
