Taking Hugh for Granted started this petition to IMBd

This petition seeks the removal of Hugh Grant's IMDb credit from the 2010 movie I'm Still Here, starring and produced by Casey Affleck and Joaquin Phoenix.

I'm Still Here follows Mr. Phoenix’s transition into a rap career and IMDb credits Mr. Grant as an ‘actor’ in the movie’s credit list, alongside a host of big Hollywood names including John Travolta, Britney Spears and Alec Baldwin. 

The problem is this: Mr. Grant does NOT feature in the film at all. He does not act in the film. Mr. Grant plays no character and assumes no ‘role’. In fact, the only reference to him throughout the movie is a picture that only serves the purpose of mocking Mr. Grant. We do not see this as adequate justification for Mr. Grant’s inclusion in I’m Still Here’s IMDb credit list as an ‘actor’ and believe it misleads viewers, like ourselves, who sought out this film to see Mr. Grant's bumbling charm or flowing locks.

Moreover, on IMDb's website, other prominent figures like Barack Obama who supposedly 'appear' in I’m Still Here in the same non-acting capacity as Mr. Grant are listed as ‘uncredited’, and are presented with the caveat of appearing only in ‘archive footage’ used in the film. Why, we therefore ask, is Mr. Grant not afforded the same treatment?

We demand the following:

1. IMDb amend Mr. Grant’s listing on their website with connection to I’m Still Here to bring it in line with the credits of other stars.

2. IMDb list Mr. Grant as ‘uncredited’ and as part of ‘archive footage’ – not as an ‘actor’.

3. On Mr. Grant's personal IMDb page, relegate I’m Still Here from his ‘Actor’ credits, to his ‘Self’ credits. 

Spearheaded by the creators of the Taking Hugh for Granted podcast, we are calling upon all Hugh Grant fans across the globe to unite and demand the removal of Mr. Grant's name from IMDb's credits of I'm Still Here and settle this issue once and for all. 

Please join us by supporting this cause.
