Hugh Grant net worth: Hugh Grant is a British actor and producer who has a net worth of $80 million. Hugh Grant was born in London on September 9, 1960. He is known for his performances in many films, in which he frequently portrays both the hopeless romantic, and sleazy, but oh-so-attractive jerk. Grant graduated from New College in Oxford where he studied English literature, and acted purely for pleasure. He never thought of having a career in the entertainment industry. However, Grant soon performed in a touring production of "Twelfth Night," and started participating in the Oxford University Dramatic Society.
Before becoming famous, Grant tried a variety of different jobs, such as writing book reviews, writing radio commercials, and tutoring. Eventually, Grant returned to acting, performing in many plays in England. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Grant was offered roles in smaller films, such as "Bitter Moon", directed by Roman Polanski, and intellectual films, such as "The Remains of the Day". His biggest breakout role that made him a huge star came in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" . It was the highest-grossing British film at the time, and Grant was awarded a Golden Globe. Grant went on to make films such as "Mickey Blue Eyes" and "Bridget Jones' Diary". Critics often praise Grant's performances, however, he is sometimes considered to have no versatility in his career, and constantly turns to the same jokes.
