Hugh Grant's children think it's highly entertaining when he "moons" them.

Hugh Grant doesn’t hold back when coming up with ways to entertain his children.

The British actor has established himself as the quintessentially English gentleman in films such as Bridget Jones’s Diary and About a Boy. Apart from an appearance in this year’s (16) Florence Foster Jenkins alongside Meryl Streep, Hugh has more or less stepped away from the spotlight, and is enjoying family life spending time with his daughter, Tabitha, and son Felix, from a previous relationship with Tinglan Hong, as well as two young children with his current partner, Swedish TV producer Anna Eberstein. Of fatherhood, the 55-year-old says that he takes a fun approach when spending time with his little ones and views himself as an “enchanting” parent, though admits to making some errors along the way.

“For instance, I like to show my bare bottom to my children... They now do that to all the children at nursery,” he said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night (03Aug16).

“I like to wear my underpants on my head, nothing is funnier than that, and now they wear their underpants on their head, and now all the little children in Chelsea, west London are wearing that.

“(Mooning) has always been funny to me. Let’s bring it back.”

Other than work commitments and being with his kids, Hugh admits to spending his free time driving “silly mid-life crisis cars” and racing against other “fat, middle-aged men.”

Though he thoroughly enjoys the sport, the star thinks his performance is usually “remarkably bad.”

“I love it because I look so nice in the costume and I like having the racing licence, it took me years to get it, and it’s such a cool thing to have,” he smiled.
