Hugh Grant delivers in Amazon’s brilliant ‘A Very English Scandal’

A delicious three-part import with a first-class pedigree, “A Very English Scandal” tells the true story of British politician Jeremy Thorpe and his secret lover, played — in a dream pairing — by Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw. Full of sly humor, poignant commentary and bizarre twists, it’s almost like the perfect marriage of “The Crown” and a Coen brothers movie.

Hugh Grant Gets Candid About Becoming A Father And Finally Marrying At 57

After starring in a number of romantic comedies and falling in love on-screen, Hugh Grant has finally found romance off-screen and is happier than ever. The 57-year-old British actor exchanged vows with Anna Eberstein last month, and Grant says he regrets not getting married sooner.

During a recent appearance on The Today Show, the Notting Hill star joked, “You don’t think I’m too young?” He went on to say that it’s “really nice” being married, and he can’t pretend it isn’t. Grant also said he is lucky to have such a great wife, and he loves her.

On May 25th – two months after Eberstein gave birth to their third child – she and Grant exchanged vows in London. The couple also has a five-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter. Grant is also the father of a 6-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son with receptionist Tinglan Hong.

It’s not easy having five kids under the age of seven, and Grant told Savannah Guthrie that traveling poses some serious challenges. He said it is “unspeakable,” and you go through the dilemma of deciding if you actually travel with them or make an excuse, so they go with their mom or nanny.

Grant’s ex, Elizabeth Hurley, accidentally revealed back in March that Eberstein had given birth. When talking to E! News, she said that Grant is a great guy and she sees and speaks to him a lot. “He’s now a father of five, he has five kids, and he’s a great dad,” said Hurley.

Two days later, during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she confirmed Grant and Eberstein’s baby news by saying they had another one, and he was “over 50 when he spawned them all.”

The Austin Powers star also said that she and Grant have been friends for 31 years, and he is still her “best friend in the whole world.” Hurley and Grant were together for 13 years, and they split in 2000.

As for his latest project, Grant recently starred as Jeremy Thorpe in the three-part Amazon series A Very English Scandal. Thorpe was a member of the British Parliament during the 1960s who went on trial for allegedly plotting to kill his former lover.

Hugh Grant’s latest project, A Very English Scandal is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.

Artist Nick Grant on Navigating A Career in the Business of Hip-Hop

Nostalgia is a dangerously beautiful thing. Too much of it will prevent you from appreciating the new, but the right amount will leave you feeling refreshed. Nick Grant is the perfect balance. His presence on the microphone reminds us all of the golden age of hip-hop, drawing on a genius level talent for wordplay and storytelling. His approach, however, is not one that is so deeply rooted in a 90s persona that it comes off as overly reminiscent of times past. His beat selection is soulful but still current. The content? Topical, he tells the story of a willingness to get uncomfortable while pursuing an intrinsic passion. Taking on life’s wins, failures, and the lessons in between while growing into the person he saw himself as before the world got the big picture. Grant’s newest project, “Dreaming Out Loud,” delivers that narrative in sonic form, and with 6.2 million streams on his latest project, tour dates with Nas and Lauryn Hill, and cosigns from greats like DJ Khaled, it appears that hip-hop may have a new challenger to the throne. 

Modern day artists are fully aware of the need for multiple streams of income. The music industry business model is still in transition. Streaming pumped life back into the business, but artists aren’t seeing much profit from the sales. According to The Guardian, artists only get $ 0.00783 and $ 0.00397 per stream from Apple and Spotify, respectively. As a result, musicians must heavily rely on show money and merchandise sales to pull in cash. Naturally, an artist like Grant who is poised for worldwide success must keep his head on a swivel when it comes to diversifying his portfolio. After all, music is a young man’s sport and eventually the goal is to move into other business ventures. 

In a conversation filled with sheer appreciation for the moment, Grant revealed a very focused intent. The first chapter of his journey is closed, and his future is on the horizon. As he reflects on the experience of putting himself in position to eat, he has honed in on solidifying a foundation upon which his empire can stand. Coming from Walterboro, South Carolina, with a population of 5,000 people, it was no easy adventure for Grant to get here. 

“You can’t walk into a label from a small town. I didn’t even have a studio, we had to make one and record in a closet. A move to Atlanta was a family move that worked out. At the time Ludacris, T.I., and Outkast were artists you could look up to and also run into at any time. It was a different world, but it was accessible. I still had to pay my dues, go around and do rap battles and go to studios and get my voice heard.” 

Nowadays, opportunities to diversify your career trajectory depend on social currency. Those ever-so-necessary metrics that prove you’ve got the audience to drive revenue. It’s what every brand looks for when forging partnerships with artists looking to merge into other lanes of creative professionalism. While Grant is undeniably talented, he’s still earning his spot among the megastars of the game. The necessary evil in that is maintaining a social presence and growing a visible fan base by the numbers. 

“Everything is just hip-hop while I build a solid foundation. I want to get into acting, clothing, and finding artists. Music has a deadline so diversifying is key. You have to pay attention to the things you’re into and your direction. It takes staying committed and being comfortable with yourself. I could be better with social media and things. I’m growing to learn about those things on top of doing more shows and touching fans. Developing those habits of making sure it’s my best whenever I put up content.” 

You can hear the reluctantly wise compromise in his voice. He’s an MC to the core, cut from the cloth of earning his stripes through battles and fighting for his songs to be heard in studios. The music should speak for itself, and create all of the opportunity he deserves. Unfortunately, this isn’t a perfect world and sometimes people want to see before they hear. That includes the folks who can provide opportunities in Grant’s places of interest beyond beautifully crafted bars. A true professional, he’s OK with playing the game as long as the music is on point. He’s got a platform now, and with that comes a duty. 

We’re the first generation of black men facing our demons without burying our emotions. On top of that, black women are holding us accountable for appreciating them and dispelling toxic viewpoints we learned from fathers, uncles, and brothers who went unchecked. Both subjects are regular topics of conversation across Twitter timelines. Using songs like “Father Figure” and “Black Woman,” Grant addresses two of the most sensitive topics for many black men. Confronting unresolved issues with the men responsible for raising us, and embracing the importance of the women who nurtured us no matter the cost. 

“I realized having a voice is a responsibility. These are things that I always wanted to talk about. Women were a village that raised me and provided for me when I couldn’t provide for myself. It was important for me to speak on, even if I was the only one to hear the records. Fortunately, it didn’t go unnoticed. Black Woman is 2-3 years old, but it shows you that God has his timing.”  

Nick’s appreciation for his position is full proof, while the game he’s in keeps reinventing itself. Platforms like Spotify offer licensing deals to artists, while companies like United Masters help artists create direct-to-consumer markets. It’s all in an effort to cut out the middleman. Still, Grant saw fit to sign with a major label. His golden ticket is in the business minds he keeps around him at Culture Republic, an imprint focused on identifying and cultivating authentic brand partnerships for the artists it represents. Culture Republic is run by Jason Geter, Chaka Zulu, and Bernard Parks who have successfully launched and navigated the brands of international superstars such as T.I., Ludacris, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, Iggy Azalea, Outkast, Cee-Lo Green, 8 Ball & MJG, B.O.B., DJ Drama, and Big K.R.I.T.

“I feel like I always got the cheat code. The people in my management are schooling me. I’m also picking up on ideas through conversation and learning on my own. I’m paying close attention to my peers and the moves they’re making. For me, it’s about letting the music open up the doors. Make sure the art is right, and everything is a domino effect.”

Grant’s whole mentality is to lift as he climbs. He wants to build a studio back home in South Carolina, He wants to help dope artists put out projects, and put people in the position to help others. He’s a fan of the culture first, so as long as he can aid others in realizing their dreams, he’s satisfied. His love for simple things is draped in the humble nature of the southern states that raised him. With a lyrically refreshing project receiving a warm welcome from critics and fans alike, Grant offered parting words on the possibility of the cultural pendulum swinging back in favor of the wordsmiths. 

“I don’t think it ever swung away. Who’s to say that the people everyone calls microwave artists aren’t just being who they really are, and that’s why it’s working for them? I would like to say I’m cut from the same cloth as a Kendrick or a J. Cole. To be a king in hip-hop you have to have a story and messaging. As long as you’re speaking about certain things you’re going to cut through. Everybody who’s the GOAT has to have a body of work. That’s my path. I want to be one of the greatest.”

Hugh Grant Is Married! Star Ties Knot for First Time at 57 with Girlfriend Anna Eberstein

Hugh Grant is a married man for the first time at 57.

The Love, Actually star and his longtime Swedish girlfriend and mother to three of his children, Anna Eberstein, 39, tied the knot in London at the Chelsea Register Office on Friday, May 25.

Photos from the venue show the happy couple beaming amongst friends and family.

News of the couple’s engagement went public after a photograph of their wedding banns — a notice publicly displayed in the register office for 28 days that includes details of where you intend to get married — was posted in several British newspapers over the weekend.

The private couple has been linked for over six years and are parents to a 2-year-old daughter, a son named John Mungo, 5, and a third child who arrived this spring and whose name they have not revealed. The Paddington 2 star is also dad to son Felix Chang, 5, and daughter Tabitha Xaio Xi, 6 — his children with ex Tinglan Hong.

Grant’s ex and close friend Elizabeth Hurley spilled the beans on the latest addition to the family during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen in March. Asked whether she was “surprised” Grant was a father to multiple children, Hurley replied, “Well, he had another last week. He has five.”

“He was over 50 when he spawned them all,” joked the model and actress, 52, adding on a slightly more serious note, “No, he’s an enchanting dad. Really, really sweet. Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person. It’s improved him. He’s gone up the scale.”

Speaking to PEOPLE’s editor in chief Jess Cagle in January, Grant said of fatherhood. “It was the nicest thing that’s ever happened to me —he said sounding clichéd — but it happens to be true,” he said. “It’s just lovely to have all that love around. Suddenly you love someone more than yourself. It’s unheard of in my case and they love you and it’s all enchanting.”

Though Grant has never married, he has been involved in several high-profile relationships, including with Hurley who he dated for 13 years before they split in 2000.  He’s also been linked to socialite Jemima Khan.

In 2016, the actor got candid about his thoughts on monogamy while appearing on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM radio show, saying marriage can be “unromantic.”

“If you ask me the question, ‘Do I think human beings are meant to be in 40-year-long monogamous, faithful relationships?’ No, no,” he said. “Whoever said they were?”

Hugh Grant, 57, is finally getting married at 57 – to his Swedish girlfriend, 39

HUGH Grant is finally getting married at 57, we can reveal.

The actor, one of Britain’s best-known bachelors, is to tie the knot with Swedish girlfriend Anna Eberstein, 39, later this month.

There is an 18 year age gap between Hugh Grant and Anna Eberstein
Fame Flynet

Grant played commitment-shy characters in comedy films Four Weddings And A Funeral and About A Boy.

The leading privacy campaigner, who wants to gag Press freedom, has had a number of high-profile relationships in real life.

The engagement emerged in wedding banns posted at Kensington and Chelsea register office, near the couple’s £10million home in West London.

The official notice of the forthcoming marriage was on display on screens in the office at Chelsea Old Town Hall.

Their names appeared on a screen in the RBKC register office

A source said: “This is a day none of Hugh’s friends ever thought would come.

“He will soon be a pensioner and has finally become a family man.”

The star, who has three kids with Anna and two with former flame Tinglan Hong, has dated a string of women.

Best known was his 13-year romance with actress and model Liz Hurley.

They split in 2000, five years after he was caught with Hollywood hooker Divine Brown.

Grant also dated socialite Jemima Khan for three years before she reportedly dumped him in 2007.

The actor was romantically linked to film co-stars Martine McCutcheon and Drew Barrymore, as well as posh PR girl — and former squeeze of Prince Andrew — Caroline Stanbury.

The wedding is thought to be taking place later this month

But after meeting retail director Anna in a London bar six years ago, Grant finally appears to have settled down.

Until now, it was always thought he would be an eternal bachelor — or, as he once put it, “a sad, lonely old man”.

Grant, who plays disgraced MP Jeremy Thorpe in A Very English Scandal, which starts on BBC1 tonight, said two years ago marriage was “unromantic”.

He added: “Do I think humans are meant to be in 40-year-long faithful relationships? No, No, No.”

But best pal Hurley says fatherhood has changed him.

She said in March: “Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable person.”

‘Paddington 2:’ Hugh Grant and Hugh Bonneville Share Their Film Favorites

Paddington 2 is the follow-up to the hit 2014 family film.

The sequel follows the adorable bear, who is now settled in London.  While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon series of odd jobs to buy it.  But when the book is stolen, it’s unto Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.

Paddington 2 includes a who’s who of British talent including Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington, Imelda Staunton as the voice of Aunt Lucy, Hugh Bonneville as Mr. Brown, Sally Hawkins as Mrs. Brown, and Hugh Grant as the Phoenix Buchanan, who Grant described to FANDOM as “washed up, vain, insecure monster of an Oscar.”


Hugh Grant
Sister Isabella is one of Hugh Grant’s more hilarious personas.

“I’m moved by almost any children’s film,” Grant said glowingly of the first film. Writer/director Paul King had the charming and cheeky actor in mind to play the sequel’s villain, so it seemed in the stars for Grant to join.

For his costar Bonneville, who appeared in the original, the sequel represented a step forward.

“In the first film, you didn’t know how it was going to turn out. I was astonished, surprised, and delighted when I saw the finished version of the fully rendered bear,” Bonneville explained. “Going into the second film — that confidence in a three-dimensional character, the detail and the subtlety in the CGI animation — I think is astonishing.”


Hugh Bonneville was impressed by the CGI work.

Naturally, we had to ask him which Downton Abbey character Paddington would get along with most. You might be surprised by his answer, as well as his tips for marmalade sandwiches — Paddington’s favorite food.

Plus, in this bonus interview, King and writer Simon Farnaby talk about Paddington’s evolution in the script and on screen.

Paddington 2 opens January 12 in the U.S. The sequel is already open in the U.K.

Las Patronas Grant Awarded to San Diego Surfrider for Water Quality Testing Program

WHO/WHEN:

Surfrider Foundation San Diego Chapter will be launching the Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) program in early 2018 due in part to receiving a generous grant from Las Patronas, a historically philanthropic organization in San Diego. Since 1946, Las Patronas has donated over $ 20 million to over a thousand charitable institutions that support a diverse range of causes and services in San Diego.

WHAT/WHERE:

The Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) is Surfrider Foundation’s national volunteer-run, water

testing, education and advocacy program. The program was founded upon Surfrider Foundation’s Clean Water Initiative:

 

To protect water quality so it is safe to surf, swim, and play in the ocean.

 

Similar to the national program, San Diego’s Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) program will be a water quality monitoring, education and advocacy program, run by Surfrider San Diego volunteers and community volunteers impacted by water quality issues. Specifically, the SD BWTF will facilitate weekly water quality results in order to inform public recreational use in our Weekend Beach Reports.

 

For approximately 20% of the year, the beaches of Imperial Beach are closed because the level of human sewage is too risky for contact or exposure. The nearby Tijuana Sloughs are closed  60% of the time due to hazardous human waste. Other times, neither are closed but the stench of raw, untreated sewage flowing in the nearby Tijuana River causes residents to stay indoors, keep windows closed, and dart home from their cars fighting nausea, gagging, and watering eyes. In February 2017, the largest sewage spill in ten years occured, where the U.S. estimates somewhere between 143 to 200 million gallons of sewage contaminated the regions of Imperial Beach and Coronado.

 

The first year of the BWTF program will focus on the areas most affected by water quality in the Tijuana River Valley, Coronado and Imperial Beach (one of the most water polluted regions of San Diego County). BWTF will identify and add additional testing sites of areas that are negatively impacted by water quality issues within San Diego Counties 72 miles of coastline.

 

Surfrider has partnered with community groups and schools in the South Bay area to focus water quality sampling and testing on highly vulnerable pollution zones. Students and volunteers will perform weekly water quality testing and results will be posted to Surfrider Foundation San Diego’s website.

 

The second lab will reside in the Surfrider Foundation San Diego office, centrally located in Sorrento Valley. This lab will be used as an open lab for all Surfrider volunteers and concerned citizens that are a part of BWTF, to test water samples and post results as the program targets the need for testing at other site along our communities coastline.

 

THE BIG WHY:

 

SD BWTF will be established with the following objectives:

 

  • to provide concerned citizens with the opportunity for hands-on involvement with an environmental problem solving effort;

  • to gather coastal water samples on a regular basis to determine pollution levels in the near shore environment;

  • to raise public awareness regarding the extent and severity of coastal water pollution;

  • to use the data collected to bring polluters into compliance; and

  • to develop a model program that could influence national legislation and enforcement.

Kaiser Permanente Grant Brings HICORE Healthy Hydration Program to Students at Kapunahala Elementary School

HONOLULU — More than 500 students at Kapunahala Elementary School in Kaneohe were encouraged to develop healthy habits at an event celebrating the completed installation of the school’s new water bottle filling station. The water station is part of a program from the Hawaii Initiative for Childhood Obesity Research and Education (know as HICORE) and the Hawaii Department of Education. HICORE is teaching students about the benefits of healthy hydration and installing water bottle stations throughout Hawaii’s schools, encouraging students to make healthy beverage decision and avoid sugary drinks through a grant from Kaiser Permanente.

The program, which began in 2015, allows schools to receive water bottle filling stations after they implement healthy policies, such as reducing or eliminating beverage offerings that are high in sugar. The program is part of the Hawaii 5210 Initiative that encourages children to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables, limit their screen time to two hours, get at least one hour of physical activity and drink zero sugary beverages each day.

The simple choice to drink water rather than sweetened drinks each day can make a big difference in a person’s long-term health and quality of life. When keiki learn healthy habits, it can help them avoid potentially deadly conditions such as obesity and diabetes. Making water a convenient alternative to juice and soda is vital.

To date, the Hawaii 5210 Initiative has 72 participating schools and has installed 24 water bottle filling stations at six Oahu complexes and one Maui complex. The program has reached over 13,000 school children. Kaiser Permanente Hawaii has donated more than $ 272,000 to the project since its inception in 2015.

About HICORE
HICORE provides collaborative and multi-disciplinary leadership in research and education on childhood obesity, physical activity and nutrition in Hawaii. The Initiative is based at the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics and is the collaborative effort of academic and community partners in Hawaii. www.hicore.org

$4.5M Intel HBCU Grant Program to Increase Retention in STEM College Majors and Careers

Intel HBCU Grant Program

Today, Intel Corp. is announcing the Intel HBCU Grant Program, a three-year, $ 4.5 million initiative, to help retain students in STEM pathways at six historically black colleges: Florida A&M University, Morgan State University, Howard University, Prairie View A&M University, North Carolina A&T State University, and Tuskegee University.

“The key goal of the program is retention, in college as well as in STEM careers,” Barbara Whye told me, Intel’s chief diversity and inclusion officer and vice president of Human Resources. “We’re working to increase retention rates in partnership with the universities.”

This is not an easy goal. The New York Times has previously reported that black people make up 1% of the tech workforce at Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter, making this demographic the least represented of all underrepresented groups.

 

Intel’s Commitment to Diversity

 

In January 2015, Intel announced its goal to reach full representation in 2020, across all categories, from entry level positions, to the senior vice president, as well as among the Intel Fellows—which is the highest technical role at the company—Whye says. “Full representation” is determined by what’s available in the employee “market.” For example, if 25% of those with engineering degrees are women, Intel’s goal is to employ 25% or higher women engineers by 2020.

Intel is one of 80 companies that agreed to a White House pledge last year to increase diversity; of those companies, it’s been reported that only seven have released data about their progress, of which, Intel is one.

“We are serious about this commitment,” Whye says. “We’re one of the few still monitoring and reporting transparently about our progress. We’ve committed $ 300 million to invest in diversity and inclusion in our Intel workforce.”

 

The Intel HBCU Grant Program

 

The Intel HBCU Grant Program may hold promise in supporting the company’s achievement of its goals. The six HBCUs were chosen because they grant degrees relevant to Intel—in computer science, electrical engineering, and computer engineering.“These degrees fit within our relevant space. About 80,000 workers at Intel have engineering degrees,” Whye says, who also has a B.S. in electrical engineering.

She also explained that the program was developed with input from the schools themselves.“We spent nine months on the ground with the university presidents, in conversation. A lot of times, companies design programs for universities instead of having conversations with those universities, but we talked through its development.”

Another great aspect of the program is that it’s based on what research has shown to contribute to student success. Whye explained that, in order to increase retention for STEM students, key success factors are access, awareness, opportunity, role models, hands-on research, a quality curriculum, and knowing how this work makes a difference. “The program is designed around these key success factors,” Whye says.

The three-year program will also bring professors from the six campuses to Intel, so they can engage in annual workshops, and take back what they learn to their schools.

Internships and two-year scholarships are integral to the program. Black employees at Intel will also have the option of getting involved, by “adopting” one of the six schools or mentoring a student.
