Hugh Grant was once sent a love song penned by a male prisoner. The 'Music and Lyrics' star has never put pen to paper for a loved one but revealed he did become the object of affection for one lonely inmate. He told BANG Showbiz: "I have never written one. I did once receive a love song from a man who was in a high security prison, somewhere in East Anglia." The 46-year-old actor - who is dating socialite Jemima Khan - also admitted he hasn't got a clue about romantic music.
When asked about his favourite Valentine's Day song, he said: "You can't ask a man that because he doesn't have an answer. But you could ask my co-star Drew Barrymore. She would probably come up with 4,000." In 'Music and Lyrics', Hugh plays a washed up 80's pop star who enlists the help of his plant lady, played by Drew, to help him write a new song.
Hugh Grant is taking a two year break from acting. Hugh claims he only starred in new movie 'Music and Lyrics' because he hadn't appeared on the big screen for a while, but he has no intention of rushing into another project. Hugh told Britain's OK! magazine: "You'll be glad to know that I'm going back into retirement for another two or three years. "There's nothing I particularly want to do and it took me two or three years to summon up the energy to do this one. "If something fantastic comes up then great, but I've never been someone who says, 'I'm burning to act, darling, because it's my life.' "
Although Hugh plans to take a break, his 'Music and Lyrics' co-star Drew Barrymore has several more projects up her sleeve. She said: "I have five things in development right now, so I'll be doing whichever one comes up first. "I'm going to try and enjoy my time off before that, though, because I'm such a workaholic." In the last five years, Drew has starred in several films including 'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle', '50 First Dates' and 'Fever Pitch'
