Hugh Grant: Yes, Fatherhood Is Life-Changing After All

Just last month, Hugh Grant didn’t seem entirely sure about whether fatherhood had changed him. Now, he’s willing to concede it has indeed.

“Everyone was right all these years, saying, ‘Hugh, why don’t you have some children? It changes your life,’ ” the actor, 51, and dad to 6-month-old daughter Tabitha, says in an interview Friday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“Now that I have [a child], it is life changing,” he says. “I recommend it. Get some!”

Tabitha’s mother is Grant’s ex Tinglan Hong, who is Chinese. In Friday’s interview, Grant reveals that one of Tabitha’s other names is Jīngxǐ, which, he explains, has something to do with how she was conceived.

“I can’t pretend it wasn’t a little bit of a surprise,” Grant, who stars in the new film Pirates! Band of Misfits, says. “But it’s a very nice surprise. In fact, the baby’s name in Chinese, because the mother is Chinese, means ‘Happy Surprise.’ “

Meet The Girls From ‘Girls’

Substitute store-brand cranberry juice for Cosmos, slip on thrift store flats instead of Manolo Blahniks, shrink a Park Avenue apartment and move it to Brooklyn, and stick four female twentysomethings with thankless jobs and you’ll get Girls, HBO’s hyped new Judd Apatow-produced comedy series that’s essentially the starkly realistic byproduct of the fantasies Sex and the City instilled in its younger audiences.

Created by and starring one of the funniest females in the biz, Lena Dunham, the series, which airs every Sunday at 10:30 p.m., follows four (the three others including Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet) privileged young women trying to navigate their life in New York City.

After last night’s impressive premiere episode, we’re sure you want to know more about the women who fearlessly portray the show’s engaging characters. We did a bit of Googling and made this cast guide for you and anyone who’s just as curious. Consider it the after-show introduction to the stars of the Girls.

Lena Dunham
Who she is on the show: Hannah Horvath
As Hannah Horvath, Dunham is the girl of the show whose lofty ambitions far exceeds her will to actually accomplish anything, yet her naiveté makes her the endearing lead. She believes herself to be the “voice of her generation,” yet she hasn’t penned more than the memos she writes for her internship. After being cut off by her well-to-do parents, she’s attempting to land a paying job, yet she doesn’t realize her own quirks make her unhirable. Most crippling of all, she’s convinced of a relationship with a scrawny man-child to whom she seems to mean nothing more than a perennial hook-up.

The Temptress of St. Tropez
Brigitte Bardot turned her back on stardom in 1973, at the height of her beauty—and went off to start her real life. As an exhibition of photographs of Bardot hits L.A., the curator, Henry-Jean Servat, gets a rare invitation to the St. Tropez sanctuary of the French legend, who expresses no regrets about her sex-kitten years and no interest in her image, but a total commitment to her cause.

Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon Come from Similar Stock ©

Saturday April 07, 2012 02:30 PM EDT

After the startling revelation that husband and wife Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are distantly related as cousins, comes a brand new detail about what they share – again, courtesy of the show on genealogy, PBS’s Finding Your Roots.

According to a network statement about this Sunday’s episode tracing the actors’ roots, “Bacon’s Quaker ancestors repudiated slavery long before the rest of the country, in 1780.”

And guess what? The Sedgwicks weren’t long to follow in the crusade.

“Sedgwick’s ancestor Theodore Sedgwick argued the freedom case of Elizabeth Freeman, also known as “Mumbet,” in 1781 – which helped bring an end to slavery in Massachusetts,” according to the show.

The series, hosted by Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr., airs Sunday on PBS at 8 p.m.
