Actor Hugh Grant plans to submit his first book under an anonymous name so that it won't be judged on his celebrity status.

Grant is working on a "dark" and "disturbing" novel, and confesses that he is not finished yet. He is concerned that his fame will affect the way publishing companies look at the book, reported

He said: "When I've finished it, I'll send it to an editor, anonymously, in order for it to be judged objectively. Because we all know about editors, don't we? I could copy out the Yellow Pages and they would still publish it simply because I'm a celebrity. This way at least my manuscript could be turned down by some 21-year-old publisher and I would walk away totally humiliated."
