The king of romantic comedies isn’t actually that romantic.

“I’m not really a believer in marriage,” Hugh Grant told PEOPLE on Saturday at the New York City premiere of his latest movie, The Rewrite, hosted by The Cinema Society and Brooks Brothers.

We can hear the hearts breaking all over the world.

But the Bridget Jones’s Diary has a good reason for never wanting to tie the knot: “I’ve seen very few good examples, maybe five, in my life, but I think otherwise it’s a recipe for mutual misery,” he said of successful marriages.

Sounds like something Daniel Cleaver would say.

Don’t give up on this famous bachelor just yet: He still has the power to melt your heart.

“What has surprised me most is, I think, how enchanting I am as a father,” the dad of three said. “I break my own heart, I’m so nice.”
