Hugh Grant says his wife has ‘hated pretty much everything I’ve ever done'

Actor’s partner Anna Eberstein is, however, a fan of his new show

Hugh Grant has revealed that his wife, Swedish businesswoman Anna Eberstein, is not a fan of the majority of his work.

The actor can currently be seen in the Sky Atlantic thriller The Undoing alongside Nicole Kidman. The pair play a successful couple whose lives begin to unravel after a mother of a child at their son’s school is murdered.

In a recent interview with Variety, Grant said he felt confident The Undoing will be a hit because one of his toughest critics, his wife Eberstein, gave it her seal of approval.

“I watched it with my wife and she has pretty much hated everything I’ve ever done, but she was obsessed with this,” he said. “If I had said, ‘No, we’re not watching another episode tonight,’ she would have physically harmed me.”

The Independent’s critic Ed Cumming gave The Undoing three stars, writing that the drama “struggles to reconcile satire with a traditional thriller”.

The Undoing is currently available to watch on Now TV.

Grant also recently revealed that co-star Kidman speaks to her sister in a “weird” secret language – and has done for over 25 years.

“What I remember most was that she was very nice, charming, but when she spoke to her sister, she spoke in a secret language,” Grant told Entertainment Weekly. “And I said, ‘Excuse me, are you speaking in a secret language?’ And they both said, ‘Yes.’”
