Hugh Grant, loveable fop, star of all the rom coms your mum watched in the ’90s, man with very floppy hair even at age 58, has popped up on Twitter for the first time this new year to politely request that a thief (!!!) please return his stuff.
As per Grant’s tweet, someone broke into his car yesterday and nicked his bag, which contained, as far as we know, a script for a new project and his kids’ medical cards.
Hopeful, believing in the true, kind nature of humanity, Grant posted an address for Coach Films in west London, pleading that the script – and the notes and ideas scribbled therein – are invaluable.
And far from pointing any accusatory fingers at anyone, Grant didn’t even dare suggest one of his followers was the culprit. No, he’s just got his fingers crossed that someone somehow “knows who broke into [his] car tonight and stole [his] bag” and could persuade them for him. It’s unlikely, but fuck it, may as well try, uh, the internet, uh? *sweats in the presence of a pretty Julia Roberts type*
“In the unlikely chance that anyone knows who broke into my car tonight and stole my bag, please try and persuade them to at least return my script,” Grant wrote. “Many weeks worth of notes and ideas. And perhaps my children’s medical cards.”

Last week, Grant attended the Golden Globes in LA, where he was nominated for Best Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie for his role in A Very English Scandal, but lost to Darren Criss in The Assassination of Gianni Versace. His co-star, Ben Whishaw, took out Best Supporting Actor.
It’s not known what script Grant lost – although wouldn’t it be interesting at those notes, huh? – or how much cash he was keeping in his man bag. He’s currently in the middle of filming Guy Ritchie‘s Toff Guys, as well as prepping for a role in a TV drama called The Underdog, also starring Nicole Kidman.
If you happen to know where Grant’s stuff is – we’re not judging you – garn, give it back. He said please.
You don’t wanna see him sad:
