Hugh Grant Says He Was ‘Pretentious’ in College: ‘Nothing Much Has Changed’

Hugh Grant has enjoyed decades of success on the big screen. And yet, the actor remains particularly honest and self-deprecating about himself, his work, and the business itself. In 2019, he even opened up about the regrets he has about his career and, in particular, his focus on romantic comedies throughout the 1990s and 2000s. But recently, Grant took an honest look at who he was during his college days, deeming himself “pretentious.”

Although Grant began to work steadily in film in the late 1980s, it wasn’t until the mid-1990s that he landed his big break. 1994’s Four Weddings and a Funeral paired him with co-star Andie MacDowell as well as screenwriter Richard Curtis, with whom he’d collaborate several more times over the years. The very next year, Grant starred in Sense and Sensibility and Nine Months.
