Who has Hugh Grant dated?
Hugh Grant's dating history has been a subject of fascination for many, marked by a series of high-profile relationships that garnered significant media attention. His most notable relationship was with actress and model Elizabeth Hurley, which lasted for over a decade, capturing the public's imagination throughout the 1990s.
Hugh and Elizabeth were considered one of Hollywood's power couples, their glamorous presence and undeniable chemistry making them tabloid favourites. However, their relationship faced a significant test when Hugh was involved in a highly publicized scandal in 1995, where he was caught in a compromising situation with a sex worker. Despite the controversy, Elizabeth stood by his side, and their relationship endured until their amicable split in 2000
"[Hugh] remains my best friend to this day, but … he really used to annoy me,” Elizabeth said in 2015 on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “I love him, but he’s very annoying.”
“We’re like brother and sister,” Hugh later confessed in an interview on The Jess Cagle Show in 2018. “I think it’s partly because we went from zero to somewhere together, and we went through terrible years at the beginning when neither of us had any work, living in a tiny flat. It was quite bonding.”
Following his split from Elizabeth, Hugh had various shorter-term relationships, but he kept his personal life relatively private.
Is Hugh Grant married?
Hugh is currently married to Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein. The couple have been together since the mid-2010s and tied the knot in a low-key ceremony in 2018 - despite Hugh's previous hesitations about marriage.
"if you ask me the question, ‘Do I think human beings are meant to be in 40-year-long monogamous, faithful relationships?’ No, no,” Grant told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show in 2016. “Whoever said they were? I think there’s something unromantic about marriage. You’re closing yourself off.”
However a mere two years later, the British actor has a change of heart, confessing on the Today show in 2018 that marriage is "really nice. I can’t pretend it isn’t.”
“I should have done it before! But I’m just lucky, I’m lucky. I’ve got a great wife. I love her, yeah.”
In the years since, Grant and Eberstein have welcomed three children together, however their relationship is grounded in privacy and a desire to keep their family life out of the public eye, making only a handful of public appearances together as a couple.
