He had a close shave

Hugh Grant almost had his famous wavy locks snipped off for Four Weddings And A Funeral.

The 46-year-old actor, who is known for his floppy hair, was close to getting a close crop.

‘I wanted to give Hugh a crew cut for the film, and he was absolutely up for it,’ Four Weddings producer Duncan Kenworthy tells the Daily Express.

‘But then he introduced a note of uncertainty and said, “You know, I did have short hair once and I didn’t look very good”.

‘The risk of making a real cock-up and having to have him wear a wig the whole time was just too great, so i said, “Ok let’s leave it floppy”.

‘And thank God I did.’
