I am not a native speaker. It is difficult for me to understand what Hugh Grant said in the conversation (e.g., "Four Weddings and A Funeral"). Because he speak too fast. It is not only him who speaks so fast, all the British actors and actress speak very fast. I think I only understand Andy McDowell (spell?), may be because she is an American.

It's Andie (short for Andrea, I think). Yes, brits do speak very quickly, often with clipped wording. I'm an American native speaker, married to a british woman. When I first met my wife, I had a hard time understanding here at times.

CA ESL Teacher:

Clipping is so nasty. When I first recorded myself I was (for the very first time) able to acknowledge the fact that I clipped... I could hardly get some of my own speech.
I speak too fast and can´t change it.

Hugh Grant has a typical middle class accent from the south of England - Hampshire or some place.

NOT upper class or true RP.
