Hugh Grant further explained how he is way different from Swedish men, and how it always disappoints his wife. He mentioned-

“What they don’t do is watch the Sound Of Music in the afternoon and sing along with the mother’s superior. When she sings Climb Every Mountain, they certainly don’t cry when the father Christopher Plummer is touched by his children singing and then joins in, I do cry, but the film is impeccable, there is not a single moment that I don’t love.”

Robert Wise directed The Sound Of Music had secured five Academy Awards back in 1965. The British actor was last seen in 2022 in HBO’s drama The Undoing, for which he even earned an Emmy Award nomination.
