One of the many iconic moments in beloved romantic comedy “Love Actually” takes place when Hugh Grant (playing the lovestruck prime minister of Britain) embarks on a joyous dance throughout 10 Downing Street.
Speaking with People magazine editor Jess Cagle, Grant, 57, reveals he had some serious reservations about the scene in the 2003 film — not about the dancing, mind you, but about how realistic it would be for the music playing from a radio to follow him from room to room as he busts his moves.
“I kept saying to [director] Richard [Curtis], ‘OK, look. I’ve got the radio on in my room, my bedroom. And I’m dancing, fine. But then I start to dance through the whole of 10 Downing Street. Where’s the music coming from? And how does it cut off at the end?” Grant tells Cagle.
According to Grant, Curtis’s reply was: “Oh, don’t worry about all that. It’s film world.”
