Born September 9, 1960 in London.
His father, James Grant, was an officer in the British Army; he later turned into a businessman engaged in the retail sale of carpets. Mother Finvola - school teacher.

Grant wanted to become an art critic, and after graduation went to college at Oxford University.
As a student, he started playing in the company of comedians "Jokers from Norfolk."
In 1982, Hugh's first appearance on the big screen in the movie "Privileged." Later followed by work on a number of UK television shows and series, as well as in the theater.

After the break, he returned to the big screen in 1987 with the production of the film "Maurice." This project has been quite successful, and after him, followed by some more work in the movies, do not remain without attention of the British film critics.

Most often, Hugh Grant had to play the role of the aristocracy, but these movies are not able to collect a large cash at the box office. As a result, none of the role of the period did not bring fame to the actor, who could well remain forever playing in the average person projects.
This is not the most brilliant period of his career, he played in the film "Den of the White Worm" Ken Russell's "Bitter Moon" by Roman Polanski, "Remains of the Day" and "Sirens" (the latter two were favorably received by both audiences and kinoekspertami).

1994 was a turning point. Crazy hit romantic comedy "Four Weddings and a Funeral" Hugh Grant has brought fame, making him a prominent figure in Hollywood. His duet with Andie MacDowell film brought a lot of awards, and most grants - "Golden Globe" for Best Actor.
After the success of this ironic comedy Grant became the most sought-after (of course, after Sir Anthony Hopkins) is an English actor in Hollywood, where he, in late 1994, he moved with his girlfriend, actress and model Elizabeth Hurley. In 1995-1996, he starred in seven films.
In 1996, with Elizabeth Grant he founded his own production company "Simian Films".

In 2000, Grant and Hurley after 13 years of life left. Parting them was not a big drama, Liz and Hugh are still good friends.
After an unpleasant event that took place in the summer of 1995, there has been a decline in the career of an actor, and in 1997 and 1998, he had not acted. Erstwhile popularity came back to Hugh only in 1999 after the melodrama "Notting Hill", which paired with Grant played Julia Roberts, and the subsequent success at the box office movies - "The Diary of Bridget Jones" with Renée Zellweger in the title role, "About a Boy" (for Grant got this film magazine Empire Film Award and was nominated for the "Golden Globe") and "Two Weeks Notice" - just fix it.

Hugh Grant does not like to talk much about himself, he values the privacy of his life. But such is the price to pay to be a celebrity - your personal life becomes public.
