got more than he bargained for after accepting the lead role in Love Actually
- he found out he was related to child actor Thomas Sangster. The actor, 47, was unaware of the family ties with the 17-year-old actor - until Sangster informed him on the set of the romantic comedy.
Sangster explains, "I remember thinking : 'That's that guy from Notting Hill
.' That guy from Notting Hill
was Hugh Grant, who turned out to be a cousin in sorts. His grandmother and my great-grandmother are sisters. He didn't know. I said: 'Apparently, you are my uncle or my cousin or something.' Then he kind of remembered my mom and uncle. So for the rest of the shoot he went round saying: 'Hello cousin' That felt quite cool."
