Everyone likes a bit of high profile conflict, but no one expects the drama to come from someone like Jon Stewart.
The Daily Show host made a bit of a stir recently with his statement about Hugh Grant being “the worst guest on the show” at a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey recently.
In an online Q&A, Stewart said of the actor: “He’s my least favorite guest. And we’ve had dictators on the show.” He added that he would never have the actor appear on the show again. Harsh words, but apparently, the on-screen English charm doesn’t translate to real life situations. Can’t say we aren’t a bit disappointed there.
If you were hoping for a bit of drama, though, you won’t find it here as both sides have been remarkably mature about the matter. Grant even tried to redeem himself by backing Stewart after the rant came out. “Turns out my inner crab got the better of me with TV producer in 09. Unforgivable. J Stewart was correct to give me kicking,” the Love Actually actor tweeted a week after the accusations. Whether that will earn him another invite to The Daily Show remains to be seen.
