Born Sept. 9, 1960, in London, Hugh Grant was educated at Oxford University and performed with a comedy troupe called "The Jockeys of Norfolk." His charming upper-class demeanor got him noticed in late-1980s and early-'90s British films such as Maurice (his debut), Lair of the White Worm and Remains of the Day.

But it was the international success of 1994's Four Weddings and a Funeral that brought Grant stardom, a Best Actor Golden Globe Award and myriad offers from Hollywood. He made his U.S. debut in the broad comedy Nine Months and has continued making movies on both sides of the Atlantic.

Among Grant's most notable films are Sirens, Extreme Measures, Sense and Sensibility, Notting Hill, Mickey Blue Eyes, Two Weeks' Notice, Love Actually and About a Boy. He was perfectly cast as Renée Zellweger's amorous boss in the 2000 hit Bridget Jones's Diary.
