Despite his “bad attitude,” he chose to partake in another rom-com, starring opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in 2009's Did You Hear About the Morgans, which audiences weren't a fan of.
“At that point, it wasn’t me giving up Hollywood,” he noted. “Hollywood gave me up because I made such a massive turkey with that film with Sarah Jessica Parker. Whether I wanted to or not after that, the days of being a very well-paid leading man were suddenly gone overnight.”
Currently, Grant is working alongside actress Nicole Kidman in HBO's latest drama, The Undoing. Concluding his SiriusXM interview, the Notting Hill star touched on how the pair have worked around their different accents in various works.
"Nicole has always, she's done loads of films with an American accent... people think of her as half and half," he explained.
"As for me, it's not that I can't do an American accent it's, for me, I like to know precisely, very precisely, who characters are and where they've come from, what school did they go to? Which part of that, which town did they live in? What did the dad do for a living? What are their social aspirations or not aspirations? And I know all that with British characters, and I really don't know anything about those kinds of, that kind of detail in America."
"So I always worry that I just come out as kind of generic. And then, then I think, well, get an American actor. There's millions of brilliant ones," he said.
