Sure Hugh Grant has demonstrated little in the way of range, but his niche has proven extremely profitable for a floppy-haired womanizer. Best known for his work in rom-coms such as Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones' Diary, Grant is always gentlemanly, mostly middle-class, sometimes lost for words, and usually able to charm the pants off of any girl (especially an American one). It's a hard life and Grant blames only himself for his typecasting: "My sudden success with Four Weddings made me think, 'Oh everyone likes me being that bumbly person,'" he told Total Film.
