Hugh Grant is a British actor known for his charming personality and his ability to play the leading role in romantic comedies. His films have always been a fan favorite, and he has worked with some of the most popular actresses in the industry.

However, recently Grant has been in the news for complaining about his co-star Drew Barrymore’s singing voice in their movie “Music and Lyrics.” In the film, Barrymore plays Sophie Fisher, a character who aspires to write music but has no lyrics. Grant, on the other hand, plays Alex Fletcher, a washed-up musician who needs a new hit song.

One of the memorable scenes in the film involves Fisher singing one of the songs that she and Fletcher had written together. However, Grant wasn’t pleased with Barrymore’s singing, and he expressed his frustration during an interview with People magazine.

Grant said that while he loved working with Barrymore, her singing was “abysmal” and “was like listening to cats being strangled.” He said that the crew members had to ask Barrymore to stop singing in between takes because it was so bad. Grant even joked that they had to use auto-tune to make her voice sound better.

Barrymore, however, took the criticism in stride and laughed it off, saying that Grant’s comments were “very Hugh.” She said that she had fun singing in the film, and she knew that her voice was not perfect but that it was authentic to the character she was playing.

Some fans were surprised by Grant’s comments as Barrymore’s voice was an integral part of the film’s plot. Her character’s struggle with finding her voice and the pressure to perform added depth to the story and made it more relatable.

It’s not the first time that Grant has expressed his opinion so candidly. In the past, he has been known to make quite blunt remarks about his films and co-stars. In an interview with The Guardian, he said that he hated some of his movies and that he would only do romantic comedies as long as he was paid well.

Despite this, Hugh Grant is beloved by many: his performances have brought joy to millions of moviegoers around the world. His portrayal of the witty, sarcastic, and charming leading man in films like “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” and “Love Actually” has cemented his status as one of Hollywood’s most talented actors.

In addition to his work on screen, Grant has also been actively involved in political causes. In 2011, he was one of the celebrities who gave evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into press standards. He spoke about the press intrusion into his personal life and how it affected him and his family.

Grant has also been an advocate for children’s rights and has worked with UNICEF to raise awareness about issues affecting children in war-torn areas. He has also been a vocal supporter of the campaign to abolish the death penalty.

It’s clear that there’s more to Hugh Grant than just his acting skills. He’s a complex character who is not afraid to speak his mind and stand up for what he believes in. While his comments about Barrymore’s singing might have caused a stir, it’s a reminder that even the most successful and loved celebrities are only human, with their own opinions and flaws.

Overall, Hugh Grant’s candidness and wit have won him legions of fans over the years, and there’s no doubt that he will continue to entertain and inspire us with his performances and his activism. As for his comments on Drew Barrymore’s singing, we’ll just have to agree to disagree – some of us think her voice was perfect for the film, while others could do without the serenade.
