approach to life and appearances
The following is a description of Hugh's basic stance toward life, the way others see him, the way Hugh Grant comes across, the face he shows to the world. In the page about motivation you will read about the inner Hugh Grant - his real motivation, which describes the kind of person he is at heart and where his true priorities lie. Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Hugh Grant" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Hugh a little better. This page describes the disguise Grant wears, his role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
He is very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind Grant's quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and also fierce determination. When Hugh Grant wants something he goes after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly - and what Hugh Grant wants, Hugh Grant usually gets.
He is not a person who lives haphazardly or superficially. Hugh wants to live passionately and intensely and is not averse to challenge, danger, or to facing the darker side of life - human pain and struggle. Hugh Grant functions well in crisis situations and he often seeks them out, for he enjoys the feeling of living at full capacity.
He is very intuitive about other people and especially about their unspoken feelings and hidden motives. Hugh Grant usually has strong, immediate gut reactions, either positive or negative, which prove to be correct. Grant approaches life very instinctively and is not always fully conscious of why he feels or acts the way he does. Hugh Grant also has a very strong affinity with animals - an acute sensitivity and a nonverbal rapport with them.
In new relationships he is rather cautious, sometimes even suspicious, until he gets to know and trust someone - and trust does not come easily to Grant. When Hugh Grant commits himself emotionally to someone, be it friend or lover, he is intensely loyal and devoted to them and he also expects the same kind of unwavering, undying loyalty in return. If he is ever betrayed by someone he cares deeply for, Hugh Grant is capable of hating and retaliating with as much fervor as he once loved. Nothing is done halfway. In fact, he is intensely involved and often jealously attached to whatever he cares about, be it person, idea, or cause. There is definitely a streak of emotional fanaticism in him.
Because of his natural reserve, others may see Hugh Grant as something of an enigma. He is quite self-protective and often defensive. Hugh Grant also has a very magnetic quality, especially to members of the opposite sex.
Hugh Grant can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about Hugh that others cannot help responding to favorably. Usually he appears confident and clear about who he is, and it is very difficult not to notice him or feel his influence when Grant is around.
Hugh Grant appears responsible, conscientious, and solid - qualities which encourage others to take him seriously. He is unlikely to present himself as more than he is, and this humility is often endearing, or at least appealing, to others. Even as a youth, Hugh Grant seemed mature for his age.
Others may see Hugh as a cool, reserved and unapproachable person, perhaps as a result of his conservative and stern upbringing. Hugh Grant could feel that no one understands him and tends to isolate himself from others.
Hugh Grant tends to be somewhat inhibited and does not want to attract attention to him. He is likely to think that other people are more important than he is and prefers to live in seclusion.
