Actors Hugh Grant and Hugh Bonneville were discussing the latest Paddington film in which they appeared (and were, may I say, superb). When asked if they had learned anything from the loveable bear, this is what they said . . .
Bonneville: “We’ve all been vulnerable like he has and wanting to fit in; but I like his eternal optimism. Life’s too short to be miserable.”
Grant adds: “Well, Paddington’s not wrong. His default position is to see the best in people and mine is to see the worst. So he’s right and I’m wrong. Maybe my new motto in life should be, ‘What would Paddington do?'”
How lovely. What should Paddington do. Maybe I’ll adopt that as my new motto too.
