After telling off the President of the United States, the prime minister is at his home when Jump (For My Love) by the Pointer Sisters comes on the radio as a song in his honour. He then starts to dance in a white, button down shirt and nice trousers. It’s not really relevant what he’s wearing, but when he shakes his butt you can’t help but notice.
‘Whenever I said, ‘Do it a bit sweeter’ or ‘do it a bit more charming,’ he thought he was being tricked. I told him, ‘I’m going to mainly be giving you a very magisterial point of view, but I just want to make you a bit sweeter once in a while,’ he explained.
‘We didn’t shoot it until the final day and it went so well that when we edited it, it had gone too well, and he was singing along with the words,’ Curtis admitted.
‘When you edit a dance sequence like that, it’s going to be a third of the length, and the bit he’s singing the words to isn’t going to be the bit of that moment, so it was incredibly hard to edit.’
Okay, we understand that Grant was trying to be the prime minister in every sense of the word, but the bit worked and it worked well. In fact, we’re going to turn on Love Actually right now and watch that scene.It’ll definitely put anyone in the holiday spirit!
