Grant Labels Crowe Suing Pathetic

British star RICHARD E GRANT is astonished American's fickle legal system could see fellow actor RUSSELL CROWE pay out $15 million (GBP27 million) after his infamous phone-throwing antics earlier this year (JUN05).

The WITHNAIL + I star insists the compensation sought by wounded New York City hotel work NESTOR ESTRADA is outrageous.

And he is relieved to be living in Great Britain where losing your temper is much cheaper.

The 28-year-old says, "The amazing thing is that I hear he's being sued for $15 million.

"Everyday I thank God I don't live in a country where you can throw a phone in the face of a hotel employee and then get sued for millions of dollars. It's unbelievable."
