Hugh Grant曉格蘭特

曉格蘭特Hugh Grant早前到觀瀾湖參加高球賽,不少朋友大叫:「救命!肥得那個樣子」「完全走樣!」我只在一邊笑,幫口一句半句:「但是他一開口還是贏足全場!」其實今年初他曾以私人身分來香港下榻Upper House,不少女朋友聞風出動在49樓的Sky Lounge去跟他打招呼,都說他平易近人,還打探到他只是訂普通房,我莞爾,處女座的一貫精明,Upper House最抵住就是普通房(七百多呎的房間比千多呎的間隔更吸引,尤其是價格,七百多呎是千多呎的一半價錢)。

人會老,我覺得曉格蘭特是典型的英國男人,越老越eccentric――完全不理會人家怎樣看,我愛怎樣就怎樣,(詹德隆也是這樣說肥彭) ――事實上他亦大有資格,身家已經用不完,曾經是荷理活片酬最高的英國演員,購入Andy Warhol的手筆,絕不下於城中大劉,中年依然飛揚跋扈,紅足十多年,但常說不喜歡拍戲,當資產不斷自動升值,不拍就不拍。當年Daniel Craig演鐵金剛跑出,他激賞:「他很好,我太girlie,扮不了鐵金剛!而且我也太貴了。」

Hugh Grant跟Colin Firth同年同月生,生日只差一天,Hugh一直以他為假想敵,曾出言諷刺,難得Colin大方面對,跑到五十歲這一刻,Colin Firth繼續演皇帝和有魅力的Single Man,阿Hugh則毫不介意讓自己肥、走樣,各自修行。一個人的本相不在外表,接受了自己覺得舒服,也是一種「見性」,光是這一點,我對他尊敬,兩個人都好。

重溫他的靦腆和豪情壯語:

我常常覺得演輕鬆喜劇難度極高,而Hugh Grant是這方面的高手,《Bridget Jones Diary1》就不是人人能演,比起《Four Weddings and A Funeral》的戇,我更喜歡他演有層次的缺憾人物,《Two Weeks Notice》和《About a Boy》演繹膚淺男人幾達爐火純青境界,卻又是兩種完全不同的調子,看這兩齣電影是享受,像紅酒那樣,久不久拿出來㗳一㗳, 連他唱歌彈琴的《Music & Lyrics》也可以㗳好多次,㗳極都有味。你知道《Two Weeks Notice》片頭那些真是他的童年照,而《Notting Hill》的special feature 則有他的父母(僅此一次),我八卦,coz I wonder where he got his good looks, dad or mom?

About A Boy, 那小男孩已長大,在 A Single Man中演勾引 Colin Firth的男同志

我由《Maurice》就開始追他的演出,多垃圾的戲也買來看,但有些真的看不下去 (same applies to Colin Firth),我覺得他很有趣,甚至給他計數,計完就知道這個人結婚的機會很微,5 需要自由7需要獨處,5 也是突破革新的數字,7也是尋求知識的數字,所以像他的演員幾乎沒有,而打高球也要看大量的書。

他在觀瀾湖的體形與衣著跟螢幕上一貫的形象相去甚遠,不知怎的,我卻身同感受,我也進入了這種不顧身世、不理會人家怎看的階段,但求自己喜歡和舒服。我沒有像他有用不完的身家,於是還得繼續工作繼續見人,適當時候也得迎合別人對我的期望!!

最近陪兒子一起看《Karate Kid》才發現自己從來沒有看過成龍任何電影,其實不知怕甚麼,大抵是怕方程式、浪費時間看一些早已知道的東西,在《Karate Kid》電影中,Will Smith的兒子固然是主角,也演得好,令兒子的中國工夫狂熱更高漲,但是成龍在戲中的第一個鏡頭我竟然認不出他來!this is something!他不再是那些正氣凜然的英雄人物,而只是一個潦倒中年人,某程度上入型入格也就是一種演技的佐證,老了的成龍(或者是戲裡角色使然),更能牽動我的投入感,也許是因為老了,也許他得到了他要得到的,像Hugh Grant那樣,也不再理會別人怎麼看,或對自己的認識有了更多層次,能夠接受不一定是演大哥或英雄。看完戲還令我有一絲感動。

    我看娛樂版後覺得他仍然有吸引力,對答風趣抵死,也很”自在”,我喜歡(Like) 。

  • True, sense of humour is a gem when you get older, man or woman.

  • May

    But how can we acquire “sense of humor”?

  • Thomas

    唔講都唔知About A Boy個小男孩,原來係A Single Man入面勾引 Colin Firth個個
    上兩個星期重溫時都冇留意到tim

    Hi Winifred,
    Could you please tell us which book(s) is about calculating/ knowing your own personality? It seems really interesting. Thanks.

  • vionne

    i love hugh grant, am addicted to his British accent
    i think people somehow underrated him, yet in my opinion he played extremely well in comedy.
    he got right timing and rythum…

  • Kinni

    Hugh Grant vs Stephen Fry, would like to see these two on Celebrity Deathmatch. They both have excellence in words of wisdom.

  • Davina

    Hugh Grant’s charm is so British gentlemen – a quality that is very unique in men from that nation. Not a racist here, but that’s what make you feel so good when in a relationship wih someone with that kind of charm, regardless of the ending.

  • Jonas

    Hi Wini, Thanks for sharing. I like Hugh and you even more after reading this article. Both of you dare to be true to yourself which needs to be appreciated nowadays. cheers.

  • I guess one could start by observing and and modelling on humorous people, like Hugh grant, that’s why i could watch his interview over and over again

  • It’s quiting to shocking to see a boy grow into a man

  • There are many, you could start by Faith Javane < Numerology and the Divine triangle>, buy numerology software from Hans Decoz, google him, his software is fun

  • Who isn’t! Yes, i alway thought superb comedy actors are underrated, from Stephen Chow to Hugh Grant…but they got their own rewards—-long lasting fans, fame & fortune… only no awards

  • Have they match already, will they match?? I would like to see them too

  • Totally agreed. I wish i would meet one, one day, regardless of the ending!

  • Thanks for the encouragement. Sometimes it’s not easy, yet sometimes i don’t give a damn:)

  • Nicole

    I just recently watched Music and Lyrics and I love Huge Hugh Grant in this movie. Especially when he does that 80s dance move (shaking his butt), I don’t think a lot of actors can pull that off. But he was funny and charming! I had to get the soundtrack because the song had been stuck in my head for the past 2 weeks.

  • It’s same here. I watched the movie like 6 years ago. This year my son “rediscovered”this movie and we have to get the soundtrack .It’s amazing how it sinks in. It just keeps playing on our minds, and my son imitates every “Grant Move”
