Hugh Grant reveals his most embarrassing career moment


It’s one of the most-loved scenes in one of the great feelgood films – but the actor who created the moment really, really hates it.

In the hit romantic comedy Love Actually, released in 2003, Hugh Grant plays a British PM who falls in love with one of his staff members, Natalie (played by Martine McCutcheon).

In one of the film’s most famous moments, Grant’s character dances down the halls of his office to “Jump” by The Pointer Sisters, before being caught out by his stern-faced secretary Mary.

The scene became an instant fan favourite – but the English actor still cringes when he thinks about it.

“I saw it in the script and I thought, ‘Well, I’ll hate doing that’,” Grant revealed in a new documentary about the film, called The Laughter & Secrets of Love Actually: 20 Years Later.

“I didn’t fancy doing the dance at all, let alone rehearsing it.

“To this day, there’s many people – and I agree with them – who think it’s the most excruciating scene ever committed to celluloid.

“Then some people like it.

“But I will give myself this credit, it was my idea to have that secretary lady catch me.


Director Richard Curtis also confirmed that Grant was deeply reluctant to do the dance scene.

“He kept saying no,” Curtis revealed.

“I think he was hoping I’d get ill or something and we’d say, ‘Oh well, what a shame. We’ll have to lose that dancing sequence’.”

Curtis said watching Grant attempting to dance was “agonisingly embarrassing” but conceded that his performance was actually pretty “perfect.”

Still, Grant is clearly a tough self-critic.

“I’m out of rhythm by the way,” he said of his performance.

“Especially at the beginning when I’m wiggling my a**.”
