[ # ] Why did Hugh Grant turn down the money from Two and a Half Men?
August 10th, 2016 under Chuck Lorre, Howard Stern, Hugh Grant

I forgot about this until now but after Charlie Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men, Hugh Grant was considered for the male lead for the sitcom. Today on The Howard Stern Show, the Shock Jock wanted to know why he turned down the role, and he explained it was because they didn’t have a script ready for him. The actor was too scared to take it on without knowing what they had planned for him.
Did he regret it? Just the money aspect because what they were offering him was “stratospheric.” Considering Ashton Kutcher became the highest paid TV actor when he took on the role, it was really up there.
It was then that Grant realized that TV actors make lots of money here in The States. In fact, when he worked with The Big Bang Theory’s Simon Helberg on Florence Foster Jenkens, he had forgotten that fact. As he explained, “When he came over to work on the film, I might’ve been vaguely patronizing to him because he hadn’t done films before.” Then he added, “Gradually, you realize, not only is he a much bigger star than me, he’s maybe the richest man I’ve ever met.” Thus, the next time you feel bad for a celebrity on successful TV show, don’t!
Now back to Grant, that is the sexiest I have ever seen the RomCom lover look! I would go to Four Weddings and a Funeral with him anytime!
