PORTRAYAL

It is paradoxical that it was Hugh Grant's sort of unwordly arch-britishness which made him an international leading man and sex symbol in the 1990s. After appearing in aristocratic roles such as Maurice (1987) and Impromptu (1991), Grant had made a name for himself in Britiain, and Roman Polanski put him further on the map by casting him as the rigid, sexually depressed contrary to Peter Coyote in Bitter Moon. Grant's boyishly good looks and delicate manner made him a popular lead as the male ideal (fronted by Tom Hanks, amongst others) was getting more sensitive and metropolitan throughout the 1990s, and after appearing in the worldwide box office success Four Weddings and a Funeral, Grant was able to pick and choose roles in Hollywood as well as Britain. More than a dozen years later, Grant has kept himself busy in the business by adding a tint of self-irony and always being able to find a refreshing comedic streak in every character.
