What is Hugh Grant's net worth? Everything you need to know about the actor (2024)

He may be one of Britain's biggest exports, so it's no wonder Hugh Grant is the guilty pleasure of many film and TV fans. The actor is best known for playing the floppy-haired bumbling Englishman in romantic comedies such as Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral, but in recent years he's won over a new generation of younger fans after playing the villain in Paddington 2 and the suave Daniel Cleaver in Bridget Jones's Diary. Hugh has been an international star since the nineties, been linked to some of the most beautiful women in the world, and now he's back in the spotlight as a father-of-five and newlywed. The actor's net worth is approximately £60m – see how he has made his fortune…

He has most recently impressed in miniseries, A Very English Scandal. Hugh played politician Jeremy Thorpe, who was accused of wanting to assassinate his lover and model Norman Scott, played by Ben Whishaw, his co-star from Paddington 2. Speaking to the BBC, Hugh said: "I've had these wonderful suits styled, this very distinctive Jeremy Thorpe style. He loved a double-breasted waistcoat, he had a ridiculous watch chain. There's a temptation to do an imitation especially when you have archive footage... You kind of need to reinvent him in your own way. It's a bloody good character, a fascinating character. A man of charm, wit and political talent but at the same time with a very dark side."

Hugh has been an international star since the nineties

The Oxford-educated actor sadly suffered a breakdown in the noughties. In 2007, he was arrested on allegations of assault made by a paparazzo. "I went mad in 2007," he admitted during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. "I got on the plane to go home, open a newspaper reading the football results – and burst into tears. And I couldn't stop crying for three weeks. It was completely absurd. I'd go to a cafe and they'd say, 'You want skimmed milk or regular?' and I'd burst into tears. So I went to see shrinks then." Hugh even went to see a hypnotist – to no success. It left him feeling "tense as a toad" rather than relaxed. "I'm totally miserable and self-conscious but because I'm English and polite I can't say that so I go, 'Yes, I'm very relaxed,'" said Hugh.

Hugh and his wife Anna bought the mansion in 2016. He also owns a villa in his wife's native Sweden, paying £507,000 for a seafront property in the resort of Torekov in 2015.

Hugh has also splashed out on a property in Chelsea which he bought for £2m in 2010, plus a terraced house in Fulham, which he purchased for £3.6m in 2013 for the mother of his two children, Tinglan Hong. He and his ex-girlfriend Jemima Khan also reportedly paid £18m for a six-bedroom mansion on Chelsea Square. "I keep buying places then deciding they are not very nice and then buying other places," he once quipped. "I now own about 17 houses in London, all of them horrible and badly decorated."
