If a few years ago we saw Hugh grant star in a door-to-door tour of the city of London trying to find his beloved in one of the final sequences of Love actually, now we see him repeat scene but in a very different context.
The actor, known for his great career in the world of cinema (with special relevance in romantic comedies), has decided to show off his best smile and ask for the vote personally to some of his fellow citizens against Brexit -and, therefore, of Boris Johnson- as part of his campaign to support the candidates of the Liberal Democratic Party to the British Parliament.
After giving a first clue of the objectives that have moved him to debut in political activism in social networks, the interpreter has decided to leave in the last days twice to accompany the candidates who have led this initiative.
After a first sample of her persuasion skills that took place on Sunday with the candidate Luciana Berger, this Monday Hugh grant wanted to accompany Chuka Umunna, who, after leaving his post as Labor deputy in Parliament, is presented to the same position on the side of the Liberal Democratic Party for the elections that will take place on December 12.
Although the actor claims never to have been involved in issues of politics, admits that at the moment he believes that the movement defending the exit of the United Kingdom Europe is increasingly powerful and worrisome, so the time has come to act to stop it: “I have never been involved in an electoral campaign in my 59 years, but we are facing – I do not want to seem dramatic – a emergency national".
Although, as he says, he had never gotten wet on these issues, the positioning of Hugh grant in the specific case of Brexit It's no secret: "I want to contribute my grain of sand to try to prevent this catastrophe."
In addition to the Brexit, in recent weeks the actor has also had some unkind words on social networks to Boris johnson, current British Prime Minister, whom he accuses of contradicting his arguments: “Leaving would cause commercial uncertainty, while the government has been entangled for years in a process of negotiating new agreements, thus diverting attention from the real problems that they do not have nothing to do with Europe. ”
That said, it seems that Hugh grant He is in a stage of his life where he is very changed. Away from those times when he was a "very naughty" guy and got carried away by bad habits, as he has admitted, in recent years he has gone sitting head. After more than seven years of relationship with the Swedish producer Anna Eberstein, with whom he has three children – a seven-year-old boy, a three-year-old girl and a one-year-old baby -, the couple gave ‘Yes, I want’By surprise in 2018.
