Hugh Grant was one of the biggest rom-com stars of the ’90s with box office hits like Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill.

Then in 2001, he played the lovable lothario Daniel Cleaver in Bridget Jones’s Diary, signalling a move away from his good guy characters.

More recently, he’s earned multiple award nominations for his role in thriller mini-series The Undoing, opposite Nicole Kidman, and now plays a comedic villain in Guy Ritchie’s new movie, Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre – something he tells 9Honey Celebrity he relished in.

Operation Fortune 9Honey Celebrity interviews - Hugh Grant

“I did actually, yes,” the 61-year-old says over Zoom, about playing billionaire arms dealer Greg Simmonds in the action movie.

“Yes, in that same way that really in the last six or seven years I’ve been allowed to play more kind of off-beat, character roles.

“I could almost say I enjoy my job now. It’s been fun,” he admits, hinting he didn’t enjoy being pigeonholed before that.

In a previous interview Grant admitted “Mr Nice Guy’s never been me”, telling Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine: “I do find that as I grow older I’m increasingly drawn to, and more comfortable in, revolting roles”.

Grant doesn’t expressly rule out a return to the Bridget Jones franchise either, when talking to 9Honey Celebrity, despite skipping the third film.

Hugh Grant in Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre

The ending of 2016’s Bridget Jones’s Baby left the door open for the actor, and his character Daniel Cleaver, to make a comeback if a fourth film was ever made.

And recently author Helen Fielding confirmed in an interview with Radio Times that she was writing the next instalment of the movie franchise.

Grant caused a stir among fans at the BAFTA Awards in 2020, when he quoted one of Cleaver’s famous lines to Bridget Jones co-star Renee Zellweger as she walked off-stage after her BAFTA win.

But the actor wasn’t giving much away, telling 9Honey Celebrity: “If there is [a fourth movie], I don’t know about it.”

For now, fans can catch him back on the big screen in Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre — the action-packed dramedy (drama-comedy) also staring Jason Statham as special agent Orson Fortune and Aubrey Plaza as agent Sarah Fidel.

The spies recruit one of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars, Danny Francesco (played by Josh Hartnett), to go undercover and get information from Simmonds, to help Fortune thwart a deadly weapons deal.

Grant’s last flick, in 2019, was also a Guy Ritchie movie – The Gentleman.

He’s spent the last few years doing TV, including drama The Undoing and the satirical Netflix documentaries Death to 2020 and Death to 2021.

Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre is in cinemas around Australia on January 12.

SpaceX is targeting Monday, June 12 for Falcon 9’s launch of the Transporter-8 mission to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.

Transporter-8 is SpaceX’s eighth dedicated smallsat rideshare mission. There will be 72 payloads on this flight, including CubeSats, MicroSats, a re-entry capsule, and orbital transfer vehicles carrying spacecraft to be deployed at a later time.

&ME And Black Coffee Join Forces For ‘The Rapture Pt.III’


on 352617667 1598819543861706 4618955323378922549 n 1080 819x1024 1

The long-awaited ID is finally out there for everyone to enjoy and close their eyes to.

This one is among the sweetest pieces of Electronic music you’ll find this year. It’s nothing new, though: that’s the style of the talented &ME. To my understanding, no one does the pianos quite like him. It’s that blend of soft, emotional piano melodies, and the minimalist Melodic Techno base under it, with just enough elements to make the piano stand out as much as it can. That blend can melt a soul. That very blend can make peace in the world.

It’s that very feeling of peace and unity that comes to me whenever I listen to the song that’s just come out: ‘The Rapture Pt.III‘, by &ME and Black Coffee.

The very eagerly awaited track has been spun by the Keinemusik DJs for a while now, making this piece one of the most requested IDs out there. ‘Pt.III’ marks the end of the The Rapture series, started by &ME around five years ago with ‘The Rapture‘, a defining track for many. Then came ‘Pt.II‘, which also made waves in the industry. This recent ‘Pt.III’ is the first — and allegedly, the only — time &ME has joined forces for the completion of the track. And who better to collaborate with than South African maestro Black Coffee. 352617667 1598819543861706 4618955323378922549 n 1080 819x1024 2

The Rapture Pt.III

As is a staple in the series, ‘Pt.III’ is driven by a very subtle kick, evolving white-noise shakers, groovy percussion, a marching synth, and, of course, PIANO, tons of piano. That’s all there is to it. The elements are few, but don’t be deceived, for masters at work know their craft very well and will make the most out of each and every element. The track as is works flawlessly, giving the piano the starring role of defining this song as unique and separating it from the rest of Melodic Techno.

The track really powers itself on and on when listening, even resorting to some teary eyes if you really feel the melody. It truly is an iconic track, and fans and critics alike know it. Just watch it in action!
