Name: Hugh John Mungo Grant
Born: 9 September 1960
Occupation: Actor, Producer
Hugh was born in Hammersmith, London to Fynvola, a teacher and James, a carpet salesman and artist who served eight years with the Seaforth Highlanders as a Captain. He also has an older brother who works in banking. During his school years Hugh played rugby, soccer, and cricket. He won a scholarship to New College, Oxford and was interested in pursuing a career in art history. He began acting just to satisfy his creative side, but as time passed he found himself doing more and more.
His first film was Privileged in 1982. He continued to work in film for the next decade, but considered giving up acting due to lack of good material. By chance, one of the next scripts he looked at was for the movie The Remains of the Day. The film earned over $63 million dollars at the box office and was nominated for a total of eight Academy Awards. Two films later, Hugh would star in Four Weddings and a Funeral which earned over $245 million dollars. At this point, Hugh was an international star. He has since starred in movies such as Nine Months, Mickey Blue Eyes, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary (and the subsequent Bridget Jones films), About a Boy, and Love Actually.
Hugh has had some personal troubles along the way, but throughout it all he has kept his straightforward, charming attitude. From his years on stage and in films, we estimate Hugh Grant to be worth $80,000,000 (GBP 50,626,502).
So how much is $80 million dollars really?
Hugh has always been popular with the ladies and what better way to entertain them than on a personal yacht? He could buy a 335 foot Monterey 355SY for a mere $234,395. He’s actually got enough money to buy 341 of them. That would be a lot of entertaining, even for someone of his calibre. But, if you are jealous of his money, just think, even Hugh couldn’t come close to being able to afford the Lurssen $622 million Project Azzam, he’d be about $522 million short.
