Hugh Grant: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Hugh Grant 2007-02-27 Berlin MusicLyricsPremiere

What he said:

“Women do love a cricketer.It’s one of those things. It’s like Aston Martins. They just love it.”

Hugh Grant is convinced that cricketers have sex appeal and that women are immensely attracted to them. The veteran thespian is no mean cricketer himself and represented his school, Latymer High School, as a youth. The actor adds that his aunt said that it was difficult to dislike a man who likes cricket except for wicket-keepers whom he terms “weird, chippy, lippy”.

What he really meant:

“Cricketers don’t just appeal to umpires—they appeal to members of the opposite sex, too.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I’d rather drive a cricket ball than an Aston Martin.”

“Crikey! My director wants a cricketer to star in his next film.”
