Grant was drunk when he bought a painting by Elizabeth Taylor. But the picture brought the actor 11 million pounds sterling ($ 19563399). The actor acquired a picture of Andy Warhol in 2001 for 2 million pounds ($ 3557287), and sold it for 13 million pounds ($ 23122371) in 2007.
But Hugh Grant admitted that when he instructed his employees to bid for a painting at an auction in New York, he drank a lot of alcohol for two days before the auction.
