Leading Man
Playing a round with Hugh Grant

Ever since the smash success of Four Weddings and a Funeral made him an international star, British heartthrob Hugh Grant has done his best to live up to the roguish charm of the characters he portrays on screen. He followed his 1995 arrest for lewd conduct with a Tonight Show mea culpa, earning the forgiveness of long-time girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley. Though the two parted ways some years later, they remain close friends—in 2003, Grant purchased a 2 million Gloucestershire estate some twenty miles from her home, and half a mile from his favorite golf course at Stinchcombe Hill. Now linked romantically to the glamorous heiress Jemima Goldsmith, Grant is poised for another box office triumph with the release of American Dreamz.

A self-confessed golf addict whose friendship with Colin Montgomerie and his wife took on a whiff of scandal during the breakup of Monty's marriage in 2004, Grant is a seven-handicapper who belongs to some of the world's most exclusive golfing establishments, including the Queenwood Golf Club in Surrey, where membership runs a rumored 145,000. With pals like fellow actor Kyle MacLachlan, he regularly plays top courses and pro-am events around the world—memorably describing the experience of playing the Old Course at St. Andrews as "golf porn."
