Hugh Grant ready to write

30 Dec 2009
Hugh Grant has hinted he is ready to quit Hollywood and become a writer.

The 'Did You Hear About the Morgans?' actor has always dreamed about penning a novel and feels now could be the right time to fulfil his ambition.

He said: "I have always promised myself, 'When you have made some nice films and earned some money, you are going to finally write your novel.' "

Hugh, 49, already has one tome half finished but has been finding excuses not to return to it.

He added: "I don't know if it is laziness or some kind of fear of failure."

The other thing stopping Hugh from becoming a full-time writer is the amount of film roles that get offered to him where he gets to work with gorgeous actresses.

The British actor - who stars with Sarah Jessica Parker in 'Did You Hear About the Morgans?' - said: "I get theses scripts and I think, 'Shouldn't I rather make a film, earn money and work with beautiful women?' "
