Hugh Grant's 50 fears
Hugh Grant is worried about turning 50 next year and fears he will never marry or have children
Hugh Grant has nightmares about reaching 50.
The Hollywood bachelor - who previously dated actress-and-model Elizabeth Hurley and socialite Jemima Khan - is dreading reaching the landmark age and fears time is running out for him to get married and have children.
Hugh - who turns 50 on September 9 2010 - said: "It's not a good number 50 and we all have age terrors sometimes in the middle of the night. I think I might have made a sort of pact with the devil in which I think I can have fun now and sort everything later. But then he comes back and says, 'Times up and I'm taking you to hell as you're going to be a lonely, sad old man.' "
Although the 'Bridget Jones' Diary' star worries he won't ever become a father, he believes he would be a great dad if he did.
He told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "I have no doubt that I'd be a marvellous father. Maybe not when they're tiny but when they're a little bit older I think I'd be rather good. I've noticed I've become good with my nephews and nieces and cousins, so I don't have that doubt."
