British actor HUGH GRANT has been oozing charm around London to get what he wants - sexy women and free parking.
The Four Weddings And A Funeral (1994) smoothie was spotted talking his way out of a parking ticket on Saturday afternoon (28JUL01) after a run-in with a stroppy parking attendant in the English capital.
Having worked his magic, he then whizzed off to chat up a brunette beauty who had caught his eye in a store in the posh Knightsbridge area - and walked away with her phone number. (KW/WNTMI/NFA)
