Grant 'Attacks' Photographer

English actor HUGH GRANT reportedly struck a photographer with a manila folder on the streets of New York City yesterday (21FEB06).

The FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL heart-throb, 45, lashed out at an unnamed paparazzo while walking down Central Park South at 9.20am, according to the New York Daily News.

Former Daily News spokesman KEN FRYDMAN, who witnessed the incident, says, "Hugh Grant had his head down, looking at his cell phone, when this young guy started flashing his camera."

Grant responded by taking photographers of the snapper with his camera phone, saying, "How do you like it, mate?" before calling the paparazzo a "p**sy" and slapped the manila folder he was carrying across his head.

Frydman explains, "The photographer kept smirking at him. He said, 'I don't know what you're so mad about.' (Grant responded), 'You're invading my privacy. This is your last warning, you c**t.'

"The photographer kept taunting him. That's when Grant kicked him in the butt. Not hard - he was just trying to shove him away. I said to the photographer, 'Leave him alone or he's going to hit you again.' I said to Hugh Grant, 'Don't hit him again, or he's going to sue you.'"
