Hugh Grant is hated by most men and a considerable quota of women who find his same-character acting less attractive than earwax covered Haribo.
This might be why old Hughie felt an image change was in order. By shaving his dome would he finally get the respect he deserved? That long-cherished place in heterosexual society?
Hugh Grant (DVDs) whinged:
"I tried to change. I had my hair cut off by Elizabeth Hurley’s hair person. I thought it would look butch. Unfortunately I looked like a butch lesbian.”
Nevertheless he did manage to meet a "hair person", which must have been a fun experience. Maybe the politically correct tosspot took a cab-ess to the salon while thumbing through Jodie Foster‘s Guide to Repressed Sexuality, and flogging breast cancer ribbons out the window?
"I’m plug ugly with my hair cut off. Even Elizabeth couldn’t look at me."
That might just be Liz Hurley forgetting to look at him for five seconds. There could have been a solar eclipse, Godzilla parachuting off a jumbo jet, a miniature George Peppard carrying a sofa bed – something else more interesting than Bugs Buggy with a haircut.
“I looked like a butch lesbian.”
Guess we’ll never know for sure.
