Hugh Grant is suave in a very surprising way. He is bashful, shy, he bumbles through his words — but it just makes him all the more endearing. We have fallen in love with him over and over throughout his career, from his character as the British prime minister in Love Actually, to washed-up singer Alex Fletcher in Music And Lyrics.
Just yesterday, Grant was give a Fellowship by the British Film Institute, and two of his delightful co-stars from Love Actually were in attendance: Martine McCutcheon and Bill Nighy. The two lovingly cheered Hugh on as he accepted his Fellowship. It's been 13 years since Grant, McCutcheon and Nighy played the Prime Minister, Natalie and Billy, respectively, but it looks like hardly any time has passed. They look incredible!
Truly aging like fine wine.
McCutcheon then took to Instagram to rave about her "rare gem" of a co-star/friend:
About last night... I had the privilege of being in the room when the lovely Hugh Grant was honoured with the BFI Fellowship award for outstanding contribution to film. It was a beautiful, intimate evening and Hugh so deserves the honour. He is a reluctant movie star - but a a rare gem all the same who makes the whole acting process look like the most natural thing in the world... The best kind of acting in my book... Well done Hugh - I was so honoured to be there with you. Thanks to the BFI for having me and to @garycockerill @marcellastylist @ginashoesofficial Adler jewels and @thesavoylondon for making my night in London luxurious and beautiful xxxx
Congratulations to Hugh! And let's keep the nostalgia going with some more reunions, please and thank you.
