Hugh Grant blames his obsession for cars on "midlife crisis"

February 19, 2012 - Washington

Hugh Grant has taken a liking towards cars, and he blames this newfound obsession on "midlife crisis".

The 51-year-old actor, who became a father for the first time last September when actress Tinglan Hong gave birth to his daughter Jessica, is "embarrassed" by his new obsession with cars and thinks it stems from questioning his life as he gets older.

"I have a new obsession with cars. It's almost too embarrassing to talk about," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Total Film magazine.

"Motor racing. I go on motor racing trips. I get taught how to drive and now go to bed and read my iPad all about how crankshafts work or disc brakes. It's weird. I don't know where it's come from.

"It's a midlife crisis. That's exactly what's happening to me," he said.
