Hugh, Hugh, Hugh…oh how we love you. He burst onto the scene in the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral and swept me off my feet. Despite his good looks and sparkling smile, that is not why I adore him. It's for his boyish, insecure charm. One look into those innocent wide eyes and an earful of his bumbling pickup lines and I would have done exactly what Andy MacDowell did and jump his bones.
Over the years the characters he played made their way into my heart. From being the Prime Minister of England caught dancing in Love Actually to a love struck book store owner in Notting Hill, to the arrogant, obnoxious, bad boy in Bridget Jones Diary or the washed up eighties pop star with the swinging hips in Music and Lyrics, he became the epitome of the romantic comedy hero.
He is the man who would knock on one hundred doors to find me and tell me in his own special, blubbering way that he loves me. What more could a girl ask for? All these endearing traits make him my hero.
