Grant was one of the go-to male leads in '90s and early '00s romantic-comedies, starring in such films as Four Weddings and a Funeral, Nine Months, Mickey Blue Eyes, Bridget Jones's Diary, Two Weeks Notice, and the holiday favorite Love Actually.

"I don't know why Love Actually is still so popular," the actor revealed in December 2018, according to Bang Showbiz, although he admitted it's "nice" that "everyone watches it at Christmas."

Last summer, Grant was asked during The Hollywood Reporter's drama actor roundtable whether he had an "inferiority complex" from always starring in romantic comedies, and he confessed that he felt he was no longer cut out for those roles.

"Well, yes, but less now because I've gotten too old and ugly and fat to do them anymore, so now I've done other things, and I've got marginally less self-hatred," the veteran actor answered with a laugh.

Despite a successful career, Grant felt he was "in a box" from the type of characters he'd played, but explained that the success was worth it. "I was being paid tons of money," he said. "I was very lucky. And most of those romantic comedies I can look squarely in the face — one or two are shockers, but on the whole I can look them in the face, and people like them."

The actor continued, "I am a big believer that our job is to entertain. It's not to practice some weird, quasi-religious experience. I see us as craftsmen along with the guy who does the lights and the guy who edits and the guy who pushes the dolly."
