During a recent appearance on "The Late Late Show With James Corden", Hugh Grant was tasked with either eating a worm pie or confessing which movie he wished he had never made. Grant chose the latter and revealed his regret about starring in "The Lady and the Highwayman".
The movie, based on a novel by Barbara Cartland, boasts a strong cast including Oliver Reed, Michael York, and John Mills. However, the film was low-budget with a bad wig and hat, and as Grant puts it, "It's poor." "I'm a highway man.
I'm meant to be sexy," Grant said as they flashed a photo of the comical poster for the film on the screen. "Low-budget, bad wig, bad hat. I look like Deputy Dawg." Grant laughed off the role, admitting, "It's poor." In another interview with ET, Grant confessed that the dancing scene in "Love Actually" was one of the most dreaded moments of his career.
Despite the movie's popularity, Grant has no qualms about poking fun at himself and admitting his faults. Critics seem to agree with Grant's self-critique, as Rotten Tomatoes has labeled "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" as his worst movie, with a measly 12% rating.
The movie stars Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker as a couple sent into Witness Protection. Other low-rated Grant movies, according to Rotten Tomatoes, include 1995's comedy "Nine Months" (25%), 2004's "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" (27%), 1990's "Crossing the Line" (33%), and 2006's "American Dreamz" (38%).
