Hugh Grant Too Old for Rom-Coms?

Hugh GrantHugh Grant thinks he is "too old" to star in romantic comedies any more.

The 51-year-old actor - who is famed for roles in films including Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill - is unsure if he can take on any more parts in the genre because he is no longer young enough.

"Well, I'm too old for romantic comedies, let's face it. I never really chose romantic comedies. They chose me," he said.

The British star claims he has never been keen on his profession, and would now rather take on smaller parts: "I've never been the world's keenest actor. I don't miss it at all. I do occasional things that are odd."

However, directing and writing is something Hugh might consider. "I would love to direct. And after all, I've worked with lots of very good directors now, really good directors, and that really does interest me. I would love to write. But I've been saying it for years and I've never got around to it."
