Hugh Grant reveals the struggle of learning the Love Actually dance

Christmas

Hugh Grant has described learning the famous Love Actually dance as "hell" in a recent television special titled Hugh Grant: A Life on Screen.

“I thought, that’s going to be excruciating, and it has the power to be the most excruciating scene ever committed to celluloid,” Hugh explained.

Colin Firth also weighed in on Hugh’s displeasure of the Downing Street dance scene. Colin mentioned that he remembers Hugh making a “terrible fuss” while on set.

“I do remember him making a terrible fuss about the dance,” Colin said.

Love Actually’s writer and director Richard Curtis added that Hugh kept making excuses during each day of filming to delay shooting the iconic dancing prime minister scene.

Hugh had a long list of things that stopped him from filming - these include a fake ankle injury and making claims that he needed extra time to learn his lines.

In the end of course, he learned the dance and aced it for the film - but who knew it was so hard for him to do it!
