Hugh Grant Likes His Daughter Okay
Hugh Grant (or "Dayum That Bitch Got Old" as you're calling him right now) accidentally made a baby with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong (Tinglin' Dong would be a really good porn name, by the way) last year and he hasn't really talked about his 6-month-old daughter Tabitha, because he's been too busy deciding if he likes her or not. It's good to know that he does! Hugh told The Guardian (via People) that he likes Tabitha and he likes her so much that he's not going to set up a trust fund for her. Oh, Hugh, you've officially transformed into your About a Boy character:
On being a father to a baby: "Lots of people warned me [that] the baby period is not that exciting. But I am excited, actually. I thought, well, I'll bluff through — but very little bluffing has been required."
On if he thinks his daughter is an asshole or not: "I like my daughter very much. Has she changed my life? I'm not sure. Not yet. Not massively, no. But I'm absolutely thrilled to have had her, I really am. And I feel a better person."
On why he won't let his daughter become a trustafarian: "I see nothing but fuck-ups among my trust-fund friends. It's like 99% fuck-ups. So I would not want to do that to my children, no."
So many people slobber on and on about how perfect their babies are, and how their perfect babies shit perfect shits and are perfect this, perfect that, perfect, perfect, perfect. So it's kind of refreshing that Hugh says in a British way that if his daughter had a Facebook page, he might like it if he was under the influence or feeling charitable. But about that trust fund thing...
I'd be pissed off if my dad was in Did You Hear About the Morgans? and I couldn't even use my trust fund money to buy a $2,000 Hermes scarf to hide my embarrassment in. Well, at least if Tabitha ever needs cash and Hugh refuses to give it to her, she can use the line: "How do you expect me to pay my rent? Sell my ass on the corner of Sunset and Courtney?"
