’90s Romantic Comedy King, Hugh Grant, Wishes He’d Taken More Career Risks
Back in the ’90s, Hugh Grant became THE romantic comedy guy. And now he regrets it.
He says, quote, “Every decision I ever made was probably wrong. After [1994’s ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’], the world was my oyster. I should’ve made interesting decisions and done different stuff.
“Instead, I repeated myself almost identically about 17 times in a row. I took everything. The worse it was, the quicker I took it.”
Obviously he doesn’t regret the money he made. And when it comes down to it, most of the movies were decent.
He says, quote, “Most of those romantic comedies I can look squarely in the face. One or two are shockers, but on the whole, I can look them in the face and people like them. And I am a big believer that our job is to entertain.”
