Horse & Hound

It turns out that Notting Hill's famous junket scene, in which Hugh Grant masquerades as a Horse & Hound reporter to snatch a few endearingly bumbly moments with Julia Roberts' A-lister, played even more fast and loose with the truth than we suspected. "We didn't have any men on the staff at the time, let alone any as delicious as Hugh Grant," laughs Lucy Higginson, current editor of the venerable mag. "People still reference that scene constantly," she tells Empire. "I've even met Americans who have assumed that the magazine's name was made up for the film." So are Horse & Hound readers really equally intrigued by both horses and hounds? "Absolutely! If we don't have enough hound every week I get..." Hounded? "Exactly."
