JAKARTA - Hugh Grant is one of the '80s actors who is still active today. He consistently chooses various roles, including his new character as Oompa Loompa in the film Wonka.

Behind his activeness, it turns out that Grant doesn't like making films. However, he needs money to support his children. That is also the reason why he took on this eccentric role.

"I hate making films a little but I have a lot of children and need money," said Hugh Grant jokingly, citing The Metro.

Hugh Grant has two children with his former girlfriend, Tinglan Hong, and three children with his wife, Anna Eberstein.

Talking about Oompa Loompa, Hugh Grant admitted that he was uncomfortable wearing the costume in this film.

“It was like a crown of thorns, very uncomfortable,” said Hugh Grant.

“I protested about that. I could have hated him even more," he said.

This is not the first time Hugh Grant has revealed that he hates making films but he consistently stars on the big screen.

The Oompa Loompa characters are also moved around a lot using technology to expand their characters in the film. He admitted that he was not satisfied with the dancing scene in the Wonka film.

“What I did with my body was terrible, and it was all changed with the animators,” he said.

The film Wonka, played by Timothee Chalamet, has a story set before the 1971 film where the character Wonka is played by Gene Wilder. This film was directed by Paul King, who worked on the Paddington film franchise.
