HUGH GRANT's new girlfriend PORTIA DE ROSSI has persuaded the actor to go for the chop - and change his floppy haircut.
The FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL star has slashed his trademark floppy locks and opted instead for an uncharacteristic crew cut - after his sexy girlfriend, star of hit American TV series ALLY McBEAL, persuaded him to make the radical image change.
