MADRID: Getting hitched and having children are among Hugh Grant’s New Year’s resolutions for 2010, the British film star said on January 7 in an interview with Spanish television.
“I have some resolutions like losing some pounds. I also need to get married and have children. I need a new house,” he told the evening news broadcast of private television Telecinco.
The 49-year-old actor, in Spain to promote his new movie Did You Hear About The Morgans?, his first film in more than two years, added he was “flirting” with two new projects.
“Neither are romantic comedies. One involves animals and the other involves music. I just need to pluck up the courage to them,” he said.
The Bridget Jones Diary star has had a string of companions including Elizabeth Hurley and Jemima Khan but has never been married.
Earlier that day Grant joked during an interview with the online edition of daily newspaper El Mundo that he had changed from a “young, loveable man full of hope and enthusiasm” to “an old alcoholic” since he filmed Rowing with the Wind in Spain over two decades ago.
Last month he confessed he was drunk when bought a 1960s painting by Andy Warhol of Elizabeth Taylor at an auction for two million pounds. He sold it six years later for 13 million pounds.
