Hugh Grant: I lack beliefs

Hugh Grant

Hugh Grant says he lacks "enough beliefs" to go into politics.

The actor explained that he is too understanding of both sides of an argument to fight passionately for a cause.

The star has recently been embroiled in a bitter battle for compensation in regards to the News International phone hacking scandal but stated privacy is the only issue that matters to him.

"I think I lack enough beliefs, or at least I am a serial relativist," he told Total Film. "I see both sides of every argument. I hear someone from the right peak and I say, 'That's right' and then I hear the guy from the left speak and say, 'No, that's right!'".

Speaking about his career in the movies, Hugh admits that there are many roles he played which make him cringe now.

He added that there are films that weren't incredibly popular but in which he rates his performance.

"They're all full of wince moments, of course," he said. "But About a Boy is not bad. A lot of people liked that film, but there are some others, which were much less fashionable, where I think I was quite good. For instance, Two Weeks Notice was quite a difficult performance. I think it's a good one, actually."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
