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

Scorpio:

This is an ideal time to make plans for the future. If you've been thinking about getting a better job, start getting the necessary training. It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
