Though he made his name playing the easygoing and somewhat befuddled Brit in several winning romantic comedies, actor Hugh Grant was a meticulous and often exacting performer, wary of celebrity while making sure to exercise full control over the roles he chose. After breaking through with the Merchant-Ivory adaptation of "The Remains of the Day" (1993), Grant became a star with his turn as a charming, but stammering Brit unlucky in love in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (1994). But he became a household name not for any role he played, but because of one particularly embarrassing moment with a Hollywood prostitute that eradicated his somewhat wholesome image. A quickly forgiving public helped keep Grant in the spotlight, however, thanks to his performances in "Nine Months" (1995), "Sense and Sensibility" (1995) and "Notting Hill" (1999). Grant's career hit new highs with "Bridget Jones's Diary" (2001) and "About a Boy" (2002) - the latter of which widely regarded as the best performance of his career - and the cult favorite "Love Actually" (2003). Though he became even more selective about his roles as his career went forward, Grant managed to cement himself as the go-to leading man for interesting and amusing romantic comedies.

QUOTES FROM Hugh Grant CHARACTERS

Marty Dwyer says: I did it! I brought you back to life! Boy it seemed like you were trying to French kiss me.

Samuel Falkner says: I was trying to scream.

Sophie Fisher says: Well, I could wear like bright orange so that you couldn't miss me.

Alex Fletcher says: Good. Good. Perhaps you can get some road work done while you wait.

Anne Durham says: Who were you talking to?

Clive Durham says: No one. No one. I was just trying out a speech.

The Pirate Captain says: You'll see. I will be Pirate of the Year! And then you'll be laughing on the other side of your faces. And believe me, that is a very painful thing to do.

The Pirate Captain says: [looks at Charles Darwin's house] You don't get many girls, do you?

The Pirate Captain says: Now listen Charles, we've all done something unforgivable. I've betrayed my pirate honor, you've betrayed science, and Mr. Bobo's betrayed the animal kingdom.

The Pirate Captain says: She's not fat, she's just "big boned".

The Pirate Captain says: She's not fat, she's just 'big boned'.

Black Bellamy says: She's fat dude.

Pirate Captain says: Its us, the pirates, masters of disguise.

The Surprisingly Curvaceous Pirate says: Are you gonna...[changes voice to sound deeper] Are you gonna enter again.

The Pirate Captain says: Why yes I am, Surprisingly Curvaceous pirate.

The Surprisingly Curvaceous Pirate says: [Blushes]

Queen Victoria says: What is your name Pirate Captain?

The Pirate Captain says: They call me "The Pirate Captain"!

The Pirate Captain says: They call me 'The Pirate Captain'!

William Thacker says: You'd go and I'd be... well buggered, basically.

Will Freeman says: "Once you open your door to one person, anyone can come in."

Will Freeman says: Once you open your door to one person, anyone can come in.

Cutlass Liz says: Hello, boys.

The Pirate Captain says: Duh.

The Pirate Captain says: Seriously. Duh.

The Pirate Captain says: Fire all things that go bang!

Pirate Captain says: Laugh in the face of danger!

Albino Pirate says: I really don't like danger at all.

The Pirate Captain says: Polly's not fat, she's just big boned..

The Pirate Captain says: Polly's not fat, she's just big boned.

George Wade says: If you have to go, just... go!

Pirate Captain says: It's only impossible if you stop to think about it.

Pirate Captain says: Behind every captain, there's a crew. Sure, some of you are as ugly as a sea cucumber, some of you are closer to being a chair or coat rack than a pirate, and some of you are fish I've just dressed up in a hat...

The Pirate Captain says: Let's go plundering!

Marcus says: (to Will before going to sing in show)What are you doing here?

Marcus says: [to Will before going to sing in show] What are you doing here?

Will Freeman says: Well, I heard you were about to commit social suicide so I thought I'd just drop by, you know

The Prime Minister says: I love that word "relationship." Covers all manner of sins, doesn't it?

The Prime Minister says: I love that word 'relationship' covers all manner of sins, doesn't it?

Will Freeman says: Every man is an Island.

Will Freeman says: Every man is an island.

Sally Kendoo says: (while kissing in vid).. did u get that??

Sally Kendoo says: [while kissing in vid] Did you get that?

Martin Tweed says: DIRTY BITCH!

Henrietta says: ...You thought I was an idiot.

Henrietta says: You see, you're turning into a kind of serial monogamist. One girlfriend after another, yet you never really let anyone near you. On the contrary... You're affectionate to them and sweet to them. Even to me, although you thought I was an idiot.

Charles says: I did not.

Henrietta says: You did. I thought U2 was a type of submarine

Charles says: In a way, you were right. Their music has a naval quality.

Will Freeman says: All men are islands. And what's more, this is the time to be one. This is an island age. A hundred years ago, for example, you had to depend on other people. No one had TV or CDs or DVDs or home espresso makers. As a matter of fact they didn't have anything cool. Whereas now you can make yourself a little island paradise. With the right supplies, and more importantly the right attitude, you can become sun-drenched, tropical, a magnet for young Swedish tourists.

Will Freeman says: The thing is, a person's life is like a TV show. I was the star of The Will Show. And The Will Show wasn't an ensemble drama. Guests came and went, but I was the regular. It came down to me and me alone. If Marcus' mum couldn't manage her own show, if her ratings were falling, it was sad, but that was her problem. Ultimately, the whole single mum plotline was a bit complicated for me.

Marcus says: "I'm warning you: I'll be back again tomorrow."

Marcus says: I'm warning you, I'll be back again tomorrow.

Will Freeman says: "OOH! I'm really scared!"

Will Freeman says: Ooh! I'm really scared!

William Thacker says: I've opened Pandora's Box!

Spike says: I knew a girl named Pandora in High school once . . . Never did see her box though!
