A Twitter user posted Hugh Grant GIF with the witty caption, “Here’s wishing Mr. Grant a Hugh-Mungo-usly fabulous birthday!” He’s had trouble with the critics, but he’s still Britain’s closest thing to a genuine cinematic icon. And, like any idol, his personal life has occasionally overshadowed his work life, possibly to his harm.

For several years, his romantic relationship was the center of attention and still remains a tabloid favourite. A graduate of Oxford University, his first film roles were in Mischief and Maurice in 1987, which helped typecast him as an upper-class snob with floppy hair, an image he has battled to shake. Mr Grant is recognised in the film industry as a thorough performer who takes his time preparing a role — someone who works hard to make it look effortless — despite the fact that this is not a quality he admires in himself.
For years, Grant has used his celebrity status to promote awareness for worthy causes and problems. Hugh’s mother died of pancreatic cancer in 2001 and despite the fact that how difficult that time has been, he has not allowed it to bring him down. Hugh also joined Pancreatic Cancer Action as a Patron. However, his battle with cancer did not end there. He started a drive to earn £200,000 for Marie Curie nurses in August of 2011.
