Hugh Grant has admitted that he struggled to film one of Love's iconic scenes. With Christmas just around the corner, the film is always on everybody's watch list as one of the most amazing feel-good festive offerings to get cozy on the sofa.

Viewers of the flick all have their favorite scenes from the love-filled plot, and it seems that one of the leading stars also has a scene that's been stuck in his mind over the previous 20 years.

The British Romcom Movie 

The actor has been recalling filming the British Romcom Comedy and how he was less than snug filming one fan-favorite scene when he signed up to star as amazing Prime Minister David.

Hugh Grant, 62 years old, won the hearts of everybody watching when he played the lurching member of parliament who fell in love with a member of his household employee.

The beautiful lady in question, potty-mouthed Londoner Natalie, was played by dark beauty Martine McCutcheon.

The Duo

Fans were in awe of the unlikely duo, the repercussions of which resulted in a scene that has been unceasingly shared on social media platforms over the years.

The special scenes see David perform an amazing dance around No10 Downing Street to Jump by The Pointer Sisters after he takes on Billy Bob Thornton's sleazy President, whom he witnessed hitting Natalie.

The Love Moments 

However, while viewers may love the moments, Hugh Grant has confessed that he wanted it to be axed as he wasn't happy to do it.

Talking to Diane Sawyer for ABC's The Laughter & Secrets of Love Actually: 20 Years Later, Hugh Grant outlined his embarrassment.

About The Script 

He said: he saw it in the script, and he thought, Well, he will hate doing that, he recalled. He didn't fancy dancing at all, let alone rehearsing it. And he is out of rhythm, especially at the beginning when he wiggles his arse.

But he admitted that the routine has fans despite his dismay at it. He continued: To this day, there are many people, and he agrees with them who think it's the most excruciating scene ever committed to celluloid. But then some people like it!
