Hugh Grant Apologises to Jon Stewart for Bad Behaviour
To contact Hugh Grant via Twitter the name he's chosen for himself is @HackedOffHugh. Despite that being a reference to his recent work in the Leveson Report, it's more than apt for the accusations levied towards him by Jon Stewart.
The Daily Show host, in an informal interview with his friend and colleague Stephen Colbert, during a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival, spoke about his experience with Grant when he came on The Daily Show for an interview: "He's giving everyone s*** the whole time, and he's a big pain in the a** ... And we've had dictators on the show." Said Stewart, quoted by NY Daily News. Back then, in 2009, Grant was publicising the terrible movie Did You Hear About the Morgans? and criticised a clip of the film used in the show. "What is that clip? It's a terrible clip," Grant said. "Well, then make a better f***ing movie," Stewart acerbically replied.
Since hearing about Stewart's opinion of him, Grant has used his twitter account, normally reserved for information and discourse about the hacking inquiry, and used the platform to apologize for his behaviour:
Turns out my inner crab got the better of me with TV producer in 09.Unforgivable.J Stewart correct to give me kicking.— Hugh Grant (@HackedOffHugh) December 14, 2012
Hopefully this will bridge the gap between the pair and Stewart can rescind his Hugh Grant ban. He's currently appearing in Cloud Atlas.
