More than 70 actors auditioned for Hugh Grant's breakthrough role in Four Weddings and a Funeral, Richard Curtis has revealed.
The role of Charles in the British rom-com swept Grant to stardom, and he went on to appear in the likes of Notting Hill, Bridget Jones's Diary and Love Actually.
But Curtis, who wrote the 1994 hit film told the Radio Times: "Hugh Grant was, I think, the 72nd person we auditioned for the lead in Four Weddings, and was the first one to make it seem funny at all."
Hugh Grant has tried to counter what he said were portrayals of his Hacked Off campaign is a "smooth and sinister operation".
He told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that it actually consists of "a few dandruffy professors sitting in a cheap office with a sightly insane chess champion ex-Lib Dem MP and a couple of threadbare lawyers... and me".
Actor and campaigner Hugh Grant has told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show that the Conservative-backed Royal Charter does not "do the Leveson proposals at all".
He said it was "cunningly designed" to encourage a return to the old system under the Press Complaints Commission, and accused the Prime Minister of trying to earn favours with the British press.

A spokesman for the Hacked Off campaign for free and accountable media has responded to actor Hugh Grant's decision to settle phone-hacking claims against the News of the World. The spokesman said:
At the outset of his legal action, Hugh Grant announced that any damages would be going to Hacked Off to be spent on providing support for victims of phone hacking and other press abuse, especially those who don't have access to expensive lawyers.
One hundred per cent of the damages and more has gone directly from News International to Hacked Off, via Mr Grant's solicitors.
Mr Grant is one of a growing list of donors who are helping to ensure that the campaign is well-funded for the battle ahead, and can continue to represent people who would otherwise be without a voice in the debate.
Phone-hacking victim Hugh Grant has accepted a "substantial sum" after settling his legal claim against the News of the World.
The British actor will donate the money he receives from News Group Newspapers to the Hacked Off campaign for a free and accountable media, his solicitor Mark Thompson said in a statement.
The statement went on: "Hugh Grant has today settled his claims for damages and other legal remedies arising out of the unlawful activities of News of the World journalists and others over a number of year.
"News Group Newspapers have agreed to pay him a substantial sum by way of damages.
"He has instructed us to donate all of his damages plus an additional payment from him to the Hacked Off campaign for a free and accountable media. This will be done as soon as payment is received.
"A statement in open court will be made shortly in the new year."
