Hugh Grant confesses he is attracted to girlfriend JEMIMA KHAN because she is strong like his mother. Grant loves the fact Khan bosses him around, as his mum did throughout his childhood. The 46-year-old reveals, "I have quite a strong girlfriend who shakes me like a rat and says 'get on with things'. "I expect it's all to do with one's mother. I find that men who have strong mothers get quite attracted to strong women thereafter."
